Why is Being a Cisco-certified CCIE So Significant?
A Cisco CCIE is a top-level networking expert who achieves this prestigious recognition only after rigorous testing administered by Cisco. CCIEs can tackle the most sophisticated issues involving network deployment, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals work closely with Cisco's in-house staff in analyzing anomalies with Cisco IOS software and coming up with workarounds or downloading program patches to correct problems. Most CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their skills are not readily accessible to small businesses.

For organizations throughout North Dakota, Progent can provide easy, quick, and cost-effective online help from Cisco CCIE consultants. CCIEs are recognized networking subject matter experts who are awarded this prestigious certification only as a result of intense testing by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve even the most complicated issues associated with network design, integration, capacity, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE professionals cooperate intimately with Cisco in-house staff in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS software and developing workarounds or acquiring software updates to resolve anomalies. Progent offers fast remote response from a CCIE so you are able to receive immediate help for tough network issues that are affecting business productivity but are outside the expertise of your usual network support providers. Progent's CCIE support experts can link to your environment via advanced remote connectivity tools in order to deliver rapid and affordable diagnosis and repair of critical network problems.
