Small business IT networks located in the state of Michigan can rely on immediate online contact with a Cisco certified CCIE network engineer to fix urgent issues involving their network. Progent retains the largest team of CCIE support professionals available remotely of any nationwide service firm in the U.S. Rates are affordable, charges are per minute, engagement is immediate, and service is world class.

In case your Michigan office is away from major metropolitan areas such as Detroit, Grand Rapids, Warren, Sterling Heights, Flint, Lansing, or Ann Arbor, help from qualified CCIE experts is often unavailable during an emergency. This could mean a loss of productivity for your business. By calling Progent's remote support, you can get in touch with a CCIE engineer ready to provide the expertise to keep your network operating.

Why is Access to a Cisco-certified CCIE So Important?
A Cisco CCIE is a world-class infrastructure specialist who achieves this elite recognition only after tough examinations given by Cisco. CCIE-certified consultants can deal with the most complicated problems surrounding computer network interfacing, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals communicate directly with Cisco's in-house engineers in analyzing problems with IOS utilities and creating workarounds or downloading software updates to correct problems. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or national ISPs, and so their help is not easily available to small businesses.

For companies anywhere in Michigan, Progent can provide convenient, quick, and economical remote help from Cisco certified CCIE engineers. CCIEs are highly-qualified network subject matter experts who earn this top-level classification only as a result of thorough testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle even the most complex problems associated with network design, deployment, capacity, repair, and service. Progentís CCIE experts work closely with Cisco engineers in identifying issues with Cisco's IOS software and developing workarounds or obtaining software updates to correct anomalies. Progent offers prompt online support from a CCIE so that you can receive timely assistance for complex network problems that are affecting worker productivity but are outside the scope of your local IT support resources. Progent's CCIE support engineers can access your network using advanced online support technology to deliver rapid and affordable diagnosis and repair of urgent network problems.
