In case your Michigan business is based outside of larger urban areas like Detroit, Grand Rapids, Warren, Sterling Heights, Flint, Lansing, or Ann Arbor, support from Cisco certified CCIE experts may be difficult to find when there's a network crash. This can cause a drop in revenue for your business. By utilizing Progent, you have access to a CCIE consultant who can deliver the expertise to get your network running.

What Makes Access to a Cisco-certified CCIE So Important?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a world-class network engineer who earns this prestigious recognition by passing thorough examinations supervised by Cisco. CCIE-certified consultants can tackle the most complex issues surrounding computer network integration, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs work freely with Cisco's in-house staff in identifying issues with Cisco IOS utilities and developing workarounds or finding program patches to fix bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or national ISPs, and so their services are not easily accessible to the general public.

For organizations in Michigan, Progent offers convenient, fast, and cost-effective remote access to Cisco authorized CCIE engineers. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are highly-qualified networking experts who earn this top-level certification only after strenuous examination by Cisco. CCIEs can handle the most complicated problems surrounding network design, integration, optimization, repair, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE experts cooperate intimately with Cisco engineers in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS software and devising fixes or obtaining software updates to resolve problems. Progent can provide prompt online response from a CCIE so you can get immediate help for complex network problems that are affecting worker efficiency but are outside the scope of your local IT support resources. Progent's CCIE consulting experts can link to your network using advanced remote support tools to deliver rapid and affordable analysis and repair of urgent network problems.
