Small business networks situated in Michigan can rely on instant phone-based help from a Cisco qualified CCIE network system consultant to assist with complex problems affecting your computer network. Progent offers the services of the largest group of Cisco CCIE consulting experts available by phone of any nationwide service firm in the country. Rates are affordable, charges are by the minute, sign-up is fast, and support is unbeatable.

In case your Michigan network is situated away from larger urban neighborhoods such as Detroit, Grand Rapids, Warren, Sterling Heights, Flint, Lansing, or Ann Arbor, help from qualified CCIE engineers is often unavailable when there's a network crash. This could mean a loss of productivity for your business. By calling Progent, you have access to a CCIE consultant who can provide the help to keep your computer network on line.

What Makes Being a Cisco-certified CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE is a top-level network expert who earns this elite title by completing rigorous examinations administered by Cisco. A CCIE can deal with the most sophisticated problems involving network interfacing, troubleshooting, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs communicate directly with Cisco's in-house staff in analyzing issues with Cisco IOS software and coming up with workarounds or obtaining program updates to correct problems. Most CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their help is not readily available to small businesses.

For small and midsize businesses throughout Michigan, Progent offers easy, fast, and cost-effective online access to Cisco certified CCIE engineers. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite networking gurus who are awarded this prestigious certification only through thorough examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve even the most complex problems associated with network architecture, deployment, capacity, repair, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE consultants work intimately with Cisco in-house staff in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS platform and developing workarounds or acquiring patches to correct problems. Progent can provide prompt remote support from a CCIE so that you are able to receive immediate assistance for complex network problems that are impacting worker efficiency but are beyond the expertise of your local network support providers. Progent's CCIE consulting engineers can link to your network via state-of-the-art online support technology to deliver rapid and cost-effective analysis and remediation of urgent network difficulties.
