What Makes Being a Cisco-certified CCIE So Important?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level infrastructure engineer who achieves this elite recognition by completing rigorous examinations supervised by Cisco. A CCIE can handle even the most complex problems surrounding network deployment, troubleshooting, and optimization. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists work directly with Cisco's in-house staff in identifying problems with Cisco IOS utilities and creating temporary alternatives or finding program patches to resolve problems. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their services are not easily accessible to the general public.

For small and midsize businesses in Texas, Progent offers easy, quick, and cost-effective remote help from Cisco certified CCIE support professionals. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are recognized networking subject matter experts who are awarded this prestigious certification only after strenuous examination by Cisco. CCIEs can handle even the most complicated issues surrounding network architecture, implementation, capacity, troubleshooting, and service. Progentís CCIE consultants work intimately with Cisco in-house staff in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS software and developing fixes or obtaining patches to resolve anomalies. Progent offers prompt online support from a CCIE so you are able to receive timely help for complex network problems that are affecting worker efficiency but are beyond the scope of your local IT support providers. Progent's CCIE support professionals can link to your environment using advanced remote connectivity tools in order to provide quick and cost-effective analysis and remediation of critical network difficulties.
