What Makes Being a Cisco CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level infrastructure expert who achieves this elite recognition only after tough examinations given by Cisco. A CCIE can tackle even the most complex issues involving computer network interfacing, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIEs work directly with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying problems with Cisco IOS utilities and creating workarounds or downloading software updates to correct bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their skills are not easily accessible to the general public.

For small and midsize businesses anywhere in North Dakota, Progent offers convenient, quick, and affordable remote access to Cisco certified CCIE consultants. CCIEs are elite network experts who are awarded this prestigious certification only after thorough examination by Cisco. CCIEs can handle even the most complicated problems surrounding network topology, configuration, optimization, troubleshooting, and service. Progentís CCIE experts cooperate closely with Cisco engineers in identifying issues with Cisco's IOS software and developing workarounds or obtaining patches to resolve problems. Progent can provide prompt remote support from a CCIE so that you can receive timely assistance for tough network issues that are impacting worker productivity but are beyond the scope of your local network support resources. Progent's CCIE consulting experts can link to your environment via advanced remote support technology to deliver rapid and affordable analysis and remediation of urgent network problems.
