  • Certified Cisco Infrastructure Consultants
    The CCIE certification is the top recognition for networking professionals, and indicates a person's technical knowledge at the master level. CCIEs can resolve even the most difficult problems associated with network planning, integration, administration, protection, and troubleshooting. CCIEs work closely with Cisco's in-house engineers in isolating anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network administration tools and coming up with workarounds or obtaining software updates to fix problems. CCIEs represent an excellent value because their deep experience enables them to resolve the most intractable problems quickly. In many cases, less qualified engineers can wrestle with identical problems for many hours or days.

    Progent is one of the rare service firms that makes CCIEs available to support small and mid-size businesses. Progent offers quick access to a CCIE by telephone so that you can get timely help for complex network issues that are impacting worker productivity but are outside the experience of your local IT support personnel. Progent's CCIE support experts can tie into your environment by means of sophisticated on-line support tools in order to perform fast and affordable analysis and remediation of urgent system trouble.
