    The CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) certification is the top recognition for networking consultants, and indicates a person's technical knowledge at the master level. CCIEs can resolve the most difficult problems encountered in network design, integration, administration, security, and repair. CCIEs operate with the highest priority with Cisco's in-house support staff in identifying anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network management utilities and coming up with alternate approaches or installing software patches to fix problems. CCIEs represent an excellent value since their deep experience allows them to solve the most intractable problems rapidly. In common instances, less qualified engineers can struggle with the same tasks for hours or days.

    Progent is among the few support organizations that makes CCIEs accessible to assist small and mid-size businesses. Progent can provide quick contact with a CCIE by phone so that you can receive immediate help for complex network problems that are hurting worker efficiency but are outside the scope of your ordinary IT maintenance providers.
