What Makes Support from a CCIE-certified Consultant So Significant?
A Cisco CCIE is a world-class network engineer who achieves this prestigious recognition only after strenuous examinations given by Cisco. CCIEs can tackle even the most sophisticated issues associated with network deployment, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIEs communicate directly with Cisco's in-house staff in identifying issues with IOS utilities and developing temporary alternatives or obtaining program updates to resolve bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or nationwide Internet providers, and so their services are not readily accessible to small businesses.

For small and midsize organizations anywhere in North Dakota, Progent offers convenient, quick, and affordable online help from Cisco authorized CCIE consultants. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are recognized network subject matter experts who earn this top-level classification only through intense examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve even the most complex issues surrounding network planning, integration, capacity, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE professionals work intimately with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS software and devising fixes or obtaining patches to correct anomalies. Progent can provide fast online response from a CCIE so that you are able to receive immediate help for complex network issues that are affecting worker efficiency but are beyond the expertise of your usual IT service providers. Progent's CCIE support professionals can access your environment via advanced online connectivity technology in order to provide quick and cost-effective diagnosis and repair of critical network difficulties.
