Small business IT networks situated anywhere in Maryland can now have immediate remote access to a Cisco authorized CCIE infrastructure expert to fix urgent problems that threaten their network. Progent retains the most extensive team of CCIE consulting experts available online of any nationwide support firm in the U.S. The cost is affordable, charges are per minute, sign-up is fast, and support is unbeatable.

If your Maryland network is based away from major metropolitan areas such as Baltimore, Columbia, Silver Spring, or Dundalk, access to Cisco certified CCIE engineers may be unavailable when there's a network crash. This could mean a drop in revenue for your business. By utilizing Progent, you can get in touch with a Cisco CCIE consultant who can provide the assistance to keep your computer network on line.

Why is Access to a Cisco CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level infrastructure professional who earns this ultimate recognition by completing strenuous testing given by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can tackle the most complicated issues involving computer network integration, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists work freely with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying anomalies with IOS utilities and creating workarounds or finding software patches to resolve problems. Most CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national ISPs, and so their skills are not easily accessible to the general public.

For companies anywhere in Maryland, Progent can provide easy, fast, and cost-effective remote help from Cisco authorized CCIE engineers. CCIEs are highly-qualified networking experts who are awarded this prestigious classification only after thorough testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle even the most complex issues surrounding network design, integration, optimization, repair, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE experts work intimately with Cisco engineers in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS platform and developing workarounds or acquiring software updates to correct anomalies. Progent can provide fast remote response from a CCIE so you are able to receive timely help for tough network problems that are impacting business productivity but are outside the expertise of your local network service providers. Progent's CCIE support professionals can link to your environment using state-of-the-art remote support tools to provide quick and affordable diagnosis and repair of critical network difficulties.
