What Makes Support from a CCIE-certified Consultant So Significant?
A Cisco CCIE is a world-class infrastructure specialist who earns this prestigious certification by passing rigorous examinations administered by Cisco. CCIE-certified consultants can tackle the most sophisticated issues involving network integration, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals communicate directly with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying issues with IOS utilities and developing workarounds or downloading software patches to resolve bugs. Most CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or nationwide ISPs, and so their help is not readily available to small businesses.

For small and midsize businesses throughout Missouri, Progent can provide convenient, quick, and economical online help from Cisco CCIE engineers. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite networking gurus who earn this prestigious classification only as a result of thorough examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle the most complex problems associated with network architecture, setup, performance, repair, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE professionals work closely with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS platform and developing fixes or acquiring software updates to correct problems. Progent offers prompt remote response from a CCIE so you are able to receive timely help for complex network problems that are impacting business efficiency but are outside the expertise of your local network support providers. Progent's CCIE support engineers can access your network via advanced online support tools to deliver rapid and affordable diagnosis and repair of critical network difficulties.
