Why is Being a Cisco-certified CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE is a world-class networking expert who qualifies for this ultimate title by completing thorough examinations given by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can handle the most sophisticated issues associated with network interfacing, troubleshooting, and optimization. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals operate directly with Cisco's internal staff in identifying issues with Cisco IOS software and coming up with workarounds or obtaining software updates to correct problems. The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their services are not easily available to the general public.

For small and midsize organizations in South Dakota, Progent can provide convenient, fast, and cost-effective online help from Cisco certified CCIE consultants. CCIEs are elite networking experts who are awarded this top-level certification only through intense testing by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve the most complicated problems associated with network topology, implementation, performance, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE experts cooperate intimately with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS software and developing fixes or obtaining patches to correct problems. Progent can provide fast remote support from a CCIE so you are able to receive timely assistance for complex network issues that are affecting worker efficiency but are beyond the scope of your usual IT support providers. Progent's CCIE support professionals can link to your network via state-of-the-art online connectivity technology in order to provide rapid and cost-effective analysis and remediation of critical network difficulties.
