Why is Being a Cisco-certified CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level networking engineer who earns this ultimate recognition only after strenuous examinations supervised by Cisco. CCIEs can handle even the most complicated problems surrounding network integration, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists work freely with Cisco's internal engineers in analyzing anomalies with IOS utilities and creating workarounds or downloading software patches to correct bugs. Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or nationwide ISPs, and so their services are not easily available to the general public.

For companies anywhere in Ohio, Progent can provide convenient, fast, and affordable remote access to Cisco certified CCIE support professionals. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are highly-qualified network gurus who are awarded this top-level classification only through strenuous testing by Cisco. CCIEs can handle the most complicated issues associated with network design, configuration, performance, troubleshooting, and support. Progentís CCIE consultants work intimately with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS platform and developing fixes or obtaining software updates to correct anomalies. Progent can provide fast online access to a CCIE so you are able to receive immediate assistance for complex network problems that are affecting business productivity but are beyond the scope of your local network support resources. Progent's CCIE support experts can link to your network via state-of-the-art remote connectivity tools in order to deliver quick and cost-effective analysis and repair of critical network difficulties.
