What Makes Access to a CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level infrastructure engineer who earns this elite title by completing strenuous examinations administered by Cisco.

Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists operate freely with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying problems with IOS utilities and coming up with workarounds or finding program patches to correct problems. The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or nationwide ISPs, and so their skills are not readily accessible to small businesses.

For small and midsize companies anywhere in Michigan, Progent offers easy, fast, and economical online help from Cisco CCIE consultants. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite network subject matter experts who are awarded this top-level classification only through strenuous examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle even the most complicated problems associated with network planning, implementation, optimization, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE professionals cooperate intimately with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS platform and developing workarounds or obtaining patches to resolve problems. Progent can provide fast remote support from a CCIE so that you are able to receive timely help for tough network problems that are affecting worker productivity but are outside the expertise of your usual IT support providers. Progent's CCIE support professionals can link to your environment using state-of-the-art online support technology to deliver rapid and cost-effective analysis and remediation of critical network difficulties.
