Small business IT networks located within the state of Minnesota can now have immediate phone-based access to a Cisco certified CCIE infrastructure professional to fix the toughest issues that threaten their IT network. Progent maintains the most extensive team of Cisco CCIE consultants accessible remotely of any nationwide support firm in the United States.

In case your Minnesota office is based away from major metropolitan areas such as Minneapolis, St. Paul, Rochester, Duluth, or Bloomington, contact with authorized CCIE engineers could be hard to get during an emergency. This can cause a loss of income for your company. By calling Progent's remote support, you have access to a Cisco CCIE professional who can offer the assistance to keep your information system on line.

What Makes Being a CCIE-certified Consultant So Significant?
A Cisco CCIE is a world-class networking engineer who earns this ultimate title only after thorough testing administered by Cisco. CCIEs can tackle even the most complex problems involving network deployment, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists operate directly with Cisco's internal engineers in analyzing problems with IOS software and developing temporary alternatives or obtaining program updates to correct bugs. Most CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national ISPs, and so their help is not readily accessible to the general public.

For businesses in Minnesota, Progent offers convenient, quick, and cost-effective online help from Cisco CCIE consultants. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are highly-qualified networking subject matter experts who earn this prestigious classification only as a result of strenuous examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle even the most complicated issues surrounding network architecture, setup, optimization, troubleshooting, and service. Progentís CCIE consultants cooperate closely with Cisco engineers in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS platform and devising fixes or acquiring patches to correct anomalies. Progent can provide prompt remote access to a CCIE so that you are able to receive immediate assistance for tough network problems that are impacting business productivity but are beyond the scope of your local IT service resources. Progent's CCIE consulting professionals can link to your network using advanced online support tools to provide rapid and affordable analysis and remediation of urgent network difficulties.
