If your North Dakota office is situated beyond major urban areas such as Fargo, Bismark, or Grand Forks, help from Cisco certified CCIE experts may be hard to get during a network crash. This can cause a loss of income for your company. By contacting Progent's online services, you can get in touch with a Cisco certified CCIE consultant ready to provide the help to keep your system running.

Why is Access to a Cisco CCIE So Important?
A CCIE is a top-level infrastructure engineer who qualifies for this elite title by passing rigorous examinations supervised by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can deal with even the most complicated issues involving computer network interfacing, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals operate closely with Cisco's in-house engineers in analyzing problems with IOS utilities and developing workarounds or finding software patches to fix problems. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their services are not easily available to small businesses.

For organizations anywhere in North Dakota, Progent can provide easy, fast, and affordable online help from Cisco certified CCIE engineers. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite network gurus who are awarded this top-level certification only as a result of strenuous testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve the most complicated issues associated with network design, deployment, capacity, troubleshooting, and service. Progentís CCIE experts cooperate intimately with Cisco in-house staff in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS software and devising fixes or acquiring patches to correct anomalies. Progent can provide fast online response from a CCIE so you are able to get timely help for tough network issues that are affecting business productivity but are beyond the expertise of your local IT support resources. Progent's CCIE support experts can link to your network via state-of-the-art online connectivity tools to deliver rapid and affordable diagnosis and repair of critical network difficulties.
