If your Massachusetts organization is outside of major metropolitan neighborhoods including Boston, Worcester, Springfield, Lowell, or Cambridge, access to qualified CCIE experts is often hard to get when there's an emergency. This can result in a loss of income for your business. By utilizing Progent's remote support, you have access to a CCIE professional ready to offer the help to keep your information system operating.

Why is Being a CCIE-certified Consultant So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level infrastructure professional who qualifies for this prestigious recognition only after rigorous examinations given by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can handle the most sophisticated issues involving network deployment, troubleshooting, and optimization. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals communicate directly with Cisco's internal staff in identifying anomalies with IOS software and creating workarounds or finding program updates to resolve problems. The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their services are not readily available to the general public.

For small and midsize companies in Massachusetts, Progent can provide convenient, quick, and affordable remote help from Cisco CCIE consultants. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are recognized network experts who are awarded this prestigious classification only as a result of intense examination by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve the most complicated problems associated with network topology, configuration, optimization, troubleshooting, and service. Progentís CCIE professionals work closely with Cisco in-house staff in identifying issues with Cisco's IOS platform and developing fixes or obtaining patches to correct anomalies. Progent offers fast online response from a CCIE so you can get timely help for tough network issues that are impacting business efficiency but are outside the scope of your local IT support providers. Progent's CCIE consulting engineers can access your environment using state-of-the-art remote support tools to provide rapid and affordable analysis and repair of urgent network difficulties.
