Why is Support from a CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level infrastructure expert who earns this prestigious title by completing tough testing given by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can deal with even the most complicated issues associated with network deployment, troubleshooting, and optimization. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals communicate directly with Cisco's internal staff in analyzing issues with Cisco IOS utilities and developing workarounds or finding software updates to resolve bugs. Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their services are not readily available to the general public.

For companies in South Carolina, Progent offers easy, quick, and affordable online access to Cisco authorized CCIE support professionals. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are highly-qualified networking experts who are awarded this top-level classification only after intense testing by Cisco. CCIEs can handle even the most complex problems associated with network design, implementation, optimization, troubleshooting, and support. Progentís CCIE professionals cooperate closely with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS software and developing workarounds or obtaining software updates to resolve problems. Progent can provide prompt online support from a CCIE so that you can receive immediate help for complex network problems that are impacting worker efficiency but are beyond the expertise of your usual network support resources. Progent's CCIE consulting engineers can link to your environment via advanced remote connectivity tools to deliver rapid and affordable analysis and repair of urgent network problems.
