Small company networks located in Maine can get immediate phone-based help from a Cisco authorized CCIE network specialist to resolve critical problems involving your computer network. Progent maintains the largest group of CCIE network consultants accessible by phone of any independent service organization in the United States. Rates are competitive, charges are per minute, sign-up is immediate, and service is world class.

If your Maine business is located beyond major urban neighborhoods like Portland, Lewiston, or Bangor, support from authorized CCIE experts could be unavailable when there's a crisis. This could mean a drop in revenue for your business. By calling Progent's remote support, you have access to a CCIE engineer ready to deliver the assistance to keep your computer network on line.

Why is Access to a CCIE-certified Consultant So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a world-class networking engineer who earns this prestigious certification only after strenuous examinations administered by Cisco. CCIEs can deal with even the most complex issues involving computer network deployment, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals communicate freely with Cisco's in-house engineers in analyzing problems with IOS utilities and coming up with temporary alternatives or obtaining program patches to resolve problems. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or national ISPs, and so their help is not easily available to small businesses.

For organizations anywhere in Maine, Progent offers convenient, quick, and affordable online help from Cisco authorized CCIE engineers. CCIEs are highly-qualified network subject matter experts who are awarded this top-level certification only through intense examination by Cisco. CCIEs can handle even the most complex problems surrounding network planning, setup, capacity, repair, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE experts work closely with Cisco in-house staff in identifying issues with Cisco's IOS platform and developing workarounds or acquiring software updates to resolve anomalies. Progent can provide fast online response from a CCIE so that you can receive immediate help for tough network problems that are impacting worker efficiency but are outside the expertise of your usual network service providers. Progent's CCIE consulting engineers can access your network using state-of-the-art remote connectivity tools to provide rapid and cost-effective diagnosis and repair of critical network difficulties.
