Small office IT networks located in North Carolina can rely on instant remote help from a Cisco qualified CCIE network professional to help with urgent problems involving their IT network. Progent offers the services of the most extensive group of Cisco CCIE consulting experts available by phone of any nationwide service organization in the country. Rates are reasonable, billing is by the minute, engagement is quick, and service is unbeatable.

If your North Carolina company is based outside of larger urban areas including Charlotte, Raleigh, Greensboro, Durham, or Winston-Salem, contact with authorized CCIE experts is often difficult to find during an emergency. This can result in lost productivity for your company. By contacting Progent's online services, you can get in touch with a Cisco CCIE professional who can deliver the help to get your computer network on line.

Why is Access to a CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level networking expert who earns this elite recognition only after strenuous examinations administered by Cisco. CCIEs can handle even the most complicated issues involving network interfacing, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIEs work directly with Cisco's internal engineers in analyzing problems with Cisco IOS software and coming up with workarounds or downloading program patches to resolve bugs. Most CCIEs work for large enterprises or national ISPs, and so their help is not easily accessible to the general public.

For small and midsize companies throughout North Carolina, Progent can provide easy, quick, and cost-effective remote access to Cisco CCIE engineers. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are highly-qualified network gurus who earn this top-level classification only as a result of strenuous examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle the most complicated problems surrounding network planning, setup, performance, repair, and support. Progentís CCIE consultants cooperate closely with Cisco in-house staff in identifying issues with Cisco's IOS platform and devising workarounds or acquiring patches to correct anomalies. Progent can provide prompt remote support from a CCIE so you are able to get immediate help for tough network issues that are affecting worker productivity but are beyond the scope of your local network support resources. Progent's CCIE support engineers can link to your environment via advanced remote connectivity tools to provide rapid and cost-effective diagnosis and remediation of critical network difficulties.
