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.

What Makes Being a Cisco CCIE So Important?
A Cisco CCIE is a top-level network professional who qualifies for this ultimate title only after tough testing supervised by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can handle even the most complicated problems involving computer network interfacing, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals communicate freely with Cisco's in-house engineers in analyzing anomalies with Cisco IOS utilities and developing workarounds or downloading software updates to correct problems. Most CCIEs work for large corporations or nationwide ISPs, and so their help is not easily accessible to the general public.

For small and midsize companies anywhere in Canada, Progent offers convenient, fast, and cost-effective online access to Cisco authorized CCIE consultants. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are recognized networking gurus who are awarded this prestigious classification only after strenuous examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve the most complicated issues associated with network architecture, configuration, optimization, repair, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE professionals cooperate intimately with Cisco engineers in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS software and devising workarounds or acquiring patches to resolve problems. Progent can provide fast online response from a CCIE so you are able to receive immediate assistance for tough network issues that are affecting business productivity but are outside the expertise of your usual network support providers. Progent's CCIE support professionals can link to your network using state-of-the-art online connectivity technology to deliver quick and cost-effective diagnosis and repair of critical network difficulties.
