Why is Being a Cisco-certified CCIE So Important?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a world-class network specialist who achieves this elite recognition only after rigorous examinations supervised by Cisco. CCIE-certified consultants can tackle even the most complex issues involving network interfacing, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs operate directly with Cisco's in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco IOS utilities and coming up with workarounds or obtaining program patches to correct problems. Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or nationwide ISPs, and so their skills are not easily available to the general public.
For companies in Maryland, Progent can provide convenient, fast, and affordable remote help from Cisco certified CCIE support professionals. CCIEs are recognized networking subject matter experts who are awarded this top-level certification only through thorough testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle even the most complex problems associated with network planning, configuration, capacity, repair, and support. Progentís CCIE experts work intimately with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS software and developing fixes or obtaining patches to correct anomalies. Progent offers fast remote access to a CCIE so you can get immediate assistance for tough network problems that are impacting business efficiency but are outside the expertise of your local network support providers. Progent's CCIE consulting engineers can link to your network via advanced online support technology to deliver quick and cost-effective diagnosis and repair of urgent network problems.
