This could mean lost income for your business. By calling Progent, you have access to a CCIE consultant who can deliver the help to get your network operating.

Why is Being a Cisco CCIE So Important?
A Cisco CCIE is a world-class infrastructure specialist who achieves this ultimate certification by passing tough testing administered by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can deal with even the most complex issues involving computer network deployment, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals communicate freely with Cisco's in-house engineers in analyzing anomalies with Cisco IOS utilities and coming up with temporary alternatives or obtaining program updates to fix bugs. Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or national ISPs, and so their skills are not easily accessible to the general public.

For small and midsize organizations anywhere in Maine, Progent can provide convenient, quick, and cost-effective remote help from Cisco certified CCIE consultants. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are highly-qualified networking gurus who are awarded this prestigious classification only through strenuous testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle the most complex problems surrounding network architecture, configuration, performance, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE consultants cooperate closely with Cisco in-house staff in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS platform and devising workarounds or obtaining patches to resolve anomalies. Progent can provide fast remote access to a CCIE so you are able to get immediate help for complex network issues that are affecting worker productivity but are outside the scope of your usual network support resources. Progent's CCIE support engineers can access your network via advanced online support technology to deliver rapid and cost-effective analysis and repair of urgent network difficulties.
