  • Certified Cisco Infrastructure Consultants
    The CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) credential is the premier recognition for network consultants, and certifies a person's networking knowledge at the master level. CCIEs can handle even the most difficult problems surrounding network planning, integration, management, protection, and troubleshooting. CCIEs operate closely with Cisco's in-house engineers in isolating problems with Cisco IOS Software network management tools and developing alternate approaches or installing software updates to resolve problems. CCIEs are an excellent value because their deep expertise enables them to solve the most intractable problems quickly. In common cases, less qualified consultants can wrestle with the same problems for many hours or even days.

    Progent is among the few support organizations that makes CCIEs available to help small and mid-size companies. Progent can provide fast access to a CCIE by telephone so that you can receive timely help for urgent network issues that are hurting worker efficiency but are outside the experience of your local network support resources. Progent's CCIE support experts can tie into your environment using the latest remote troubleshooting tools in order to provide quick and affordable diagnosis and repair of critical system problems.
