By contacting Progent's remote support, you can get in touch with a Cisco CCIE professional ready to offer the expertise to get your computer network operating.

Why is Access to a Cisco-certified CCIE So Important?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level infrastructure engineer who achieves this elite recognition by passing thorough testing administered by Cisco. CCIEs can tackle the most sophisticated issues involving network deployment, troubleshooting, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs work directly with Cisco's internal staff in identifying issues with Cisco IOS utilities and creating temporary alternatives or downloading program updates to fix bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large corporations or nationwide ISPs, and so their help is not readily available to the general public.

For businesses in North Carolina, Progent can provide easy, quick, and cost-effective remote access to Cisco CCIE engineers. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite networking gurus who are awarded this prestigious classification only as a result of thorough testing by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve the most complex problems surrounding network topology, setup, optimization, repair, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE professionals work intimately with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS platform and devising fixes or acquiring software updates to resolve problems. Progent offers prompt remote access to a CCIE so you can receive immediate help for complex network issues that are affecting worker efficiency but are outside the scope of your usual IT service resources. Progent's CCIE consulting engineers can link to your environment using advanced remote support technology to provide rapid and cost-effective analysis and repair of critical network problems.
