  • Certified Cisco Infrastructure Engineers
    The CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) credential is the premier recognition for network engineers, and indicates an individual's technical knowledge at the expert level. CCIEs can handle even the most complex problems encountered in network design, deployment, management, protection, and repair. CCIEs work on a privileged basis with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying problems with IOS Software network management utilities and coming up with workarounds or obtaining software updates to correct problems. CCIEs represent an excellent value because their depth of experience allows them to resolve the most intractable problems rapidly. In many cases, less qualified engineers can struggle with the same problems for many hours or even days.

    Progent is one of the rare support organizations that makes CCIEs accessible to assist small and mid-size businesses. Progent can provide fast contact with a CCIE by telephone so that you can receive immediate help for urgent network issues that are impacting business efficiency but are outside the experience of your local IT support resources. Progent's CCIE engineers can tie into your network using secure remote troubleshooting technology in order to perform quick and affordable diagnosis and repair of critical network problems.
