Why is Support from a CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A Cisco CCIE is a world-class infrastructure expert who qualifies for this elite recognition only after thorough examinations given by Cisco. CCIE-certified consultants can tackle the most sophisticated issues associated with computer network integration, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIEs operate freely with Cisco's internal staff in analyzing anomalies with Cisco IOS software and developing workarounds or finding program patches to fix problems. Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their skills are not easily available to the general public.

For small and midsize organizations throughout Maryland, Progent offers convenient, quick, and cost-effective remote help from Cisco CCIE consultants. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite networking experts who are awarded this top-level certification only through thorough examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve even the most complicated problems surrounding network topology, implementation, capacity, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE consultants cooperate intimately with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS software and devising workarounds or obtaining software updates to resolve anomalies. Progent offers prompt remote access to a CCIE so that you are able to get immediate assistance for tough network issues that are impacting business productivity but are beyond the expertise of your usual IT support resources. Progent's CCIE consulting professionals can access your environment using advanced remote connectivity tools to deliver rapid and affordable analysis and repair of urgent network problems.
