Small and mid-size business computer networks located in the Toronto area can now get immediate online or onsite help from a Cisco-certified CCIE network engineer to resolve complex issues involving your IT infrastructure. Progent maintains one of the largest teams of CCIE consultants available online of any independent support firm in Canada or the United States.

If your business is based outside of Toronto, prompt access to qualified CCIE experts may be unavailable. This could mean lost income for your company. By calling Progent's online services, you have access to a Cisco certified CCIE professional who can deliver the assistance you need to keep your system running.

Why is Access to a Cisco-certified CCIE So Significant?
A Cisco CCIE is a world-class infrastructure specialist who earns this prestigious title by passing thorough examinations given by Cisco. CCIEs can deal with even the most sophisticated issues surrounding computer network integration, troubleshooting, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs operate freely with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying issues with IOS software and developing workarounds or downloading software updates to resolve bugs. Most CCIEs work for large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their skills are not easily available to small businesses.

For small and midsize businesses anywhere in Canada, Progent can provide convenient, fast, and cost-effective remote help from Cisco CCIE engineers. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are recognized network subject matter experts who are awarded this top-level certification only through thorough examination by Cisco. CCIEs can handle the most complex issues surrounding network architecture, deployment, optimization, troubleshooting, and support. Progentís CCIE professionals cooperate intimately with Cisco engineers in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS platform and devising workarounds or obtaining software updates to correct problems. Progent can provide fast remote access to a CCIE so that you are able to receive timely assistance for tough network issues that are impacting worker efficiency but are beyond the expertise of your usual IT support providers. Progent's CCIE consulting professionals can access your network using state-of-the-art online support tools to provide rapid and cost-effective diagnosis and repair of urgent network difficulties.
