What Makes Access to a Cisco CCIE So Important?
A Cisco CCIE is a world-class network engineer who qualifies for this ultimate recognition by passing thorough testing supervised by Cisco. CCIEs can tackle even the most complex problems surrounding network interfacing, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIEs communicate freely with Cisco's internal staff in analyzing problems with Cisco IOS software and coming up with workarounds or downloading program patches to fix problems. Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their help is not readily available to the general public.

For small and midsize businesses anywhere in Texas, Progent offers easy, quick, and economical online access to Cisco CCIE support professionals. CCIEs are elite networking gurus who earn this top-level classification only after strenuous examination by Cisco. CCIEs can handle even the most complex problems surrounding network design, deployment, optimization, troubleshooting, and service. Progentís CCIE consultants cooperate intimately with Cisco in-house staff in identifying issues with Cisco's IOS platform and devising workarounds or obtaining software updates to correct problems. Progent can provide prompt online response from a CCIE so that you are able to receive immediate assistance for tough network issues that are impacting business productivity but are beyond the expertise of your usual IT service providers. Progent's CCIE consulting experts can access your environment via state-of-the-art remote support tools to deliver rapid and cost-effective analysis and remediation of critical network problems.
