Small company IT networks situated throughout the state of Maryland can get immediate online access to a Cisco authorized CCIE network system consultant to assist with critical problems involving your network. Progent retains the largest team of Cisco CCIE consulting experts available remotely of any nationwide service organization in the country. Rates are competitive, billing is by the minute, engagement is immediate, and service is unbeatable.

In case your Maryland business is away from larger metropolitan neighborhoods such as Baltimore, Columbia, Silver Spring, or Dundalk, contact with Cisco certified CCIE engineers could be unavailable during a crisis. This can result in a loss of income for your company. By calling Progent, you can get in touch with a CCIE engineer who can deliver the expertise to keep your system on line.

Why is Access to a CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A Cisco CCIE is a top-level network expert who qualifies for this elite certification by passing rigorous examinations supervised by Cisco. A CCIE can handle the most sophisticated problems associated with network interfacing, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists communicate freely with Cisco's internal staff in analyzing issues with Cisco IOS software and creating temporary alternatives or finding software patches to resolve bugs. Most CCIEs work for large corporations or national ISPs, and so their help is not easily available to the general public.

For small and midsize organizations anywhere in Maryland, Progent offers easy, fast, and affordable remote access to Cisco authorized CCIE support professionals. CCIEs are highly-qualified network gurus who are awarded this top-level classification only through intense testing by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve the most complex issues associated with network design, configuration, performance, repair, and support. Progentís CCIE professionals cooperate intimately with Cisco engineers in identifying issues with Cisco's IOS platform and developing fixes or acquiring patches to correct problems. Progent offers fast remote access to a CCIE so that you can receive immediate assistance for complex network issues that are affecting worker efficiency but are beyond the expertise of your usual IT support resources. Progent's CCIE support engineers can access your network using state-of-the-art remote connectivity tools in order to provide rapid and cost-effective analysis and remediation of critical network difficulties.
