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. Rates are affordable, billing is per minute, engagement is fast, and support is unbeatable.

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 CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level infrastructure specialist who qualifies for this ultimate title by passing strenuous examinations given by Cisco. CCIEs can handle the most sophisticated issues involving computer network integration, troubleshooting, and optimization. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists operate directly with Cisco's internal engineers in identifying issues with Cisco IOS software and coming up with workarounds or finding program updates to fix bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national ISPs, and so their help is not readily accessible to the general public.

For businesses in Canada, Progent offers convenient, quick, and cost-effective remote access to Cisco CCIE consultants. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are recognized network subject matter experts who are awarded this top-level classification only after strenuous examination by Cisco. CCIEs can handle the most complex issues surrounding network topology, configuration, capacity, repair, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE professionals cooperate closely with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS software and developing workarounds or acquiring software updates to correct anomalies. Progent can provide prompt online response from a CCIE so you are able to receive immediate assistance for tough network problems that are impacting business efficiency but are outside the scope of your usual network support resources. Progent's CCIE consulting professionals can access your environment via advanced remote support technology in order to deliver rapid and affordable diagnosis and repair of critical network problems.
