Small office computer networks located in the state of South Carolina can get immediate phone-based help from a Cisco authorized CCIE infrastructure consultant to help with complex problems that threaten your IT network. Progent offers the services of the largest team of CCIE network consulting experts available remotely of any independent service firm in the United States. The cost is affordable, billing is by the minute, sign-up is fast, and support is unbeatable.

In case your South Carolina small business is located outside of larger urban areas including Columbia, Charleston, Rock Hill, or Greenville, access to qualified CCIE experts may be hard to get when there's an emergency. This could mean a drop in revenue for your company. By calling Progent's remote support, you can get in touch with a CCIE professional who can provide the expertise to keep your network running.

What Makes Support from a CCIE-certified Consultant So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level network expert who earns this ultimate certification by passing strenuous examinations given by Cisco. A CCIE can tackle even the most complex issues associated with network interfacing, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals communicate directly with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying problems with IOS utilities and developing workarounds or downloading program updates to fix problems. Most CCIEs work for large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their skills are not easily available to small businesses.

For small and midsize organizations throughout South Carolina, Progent offers convenient, quick, and affordable online access to Cisco authorized CCIE consultants. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite network gurus who earn this prestigious certification only as a result of intense testing by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve even the most complex issues associated with network architecture, configuration, performance, troubleshooting, and support. Progentís CCIE consultants cooperate intimately with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS platform and developing workarounds or obtaining patches to correct anomalies. Progent offers prompt remote access to a CCIE so that you are able to get timely assistance for complex network problems that are impacting worker productivity but are outside the expertise of your usual network support resources. Progent's CCIE support engineers can access your network using advanced online support technology in order to deliver rapid and cost-effective diagnosis and remediation of urgent network difficulties.
