What Makes Access to a CCIE-certified Consultant So Significant?
A Cisco CCIE is a top-level networking engineer who qualifies for this prestigious recognition by passing thorough testing administered by Cisco.

For small and midsize businesses anywhere in Washington, Progent offers easy, quick, and affordable online help from Cisco authorized CCIE support professionals. CCIEs are elite networking gurus who earn this prestigious certification only as a result of intense examination by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve even the most complex problems associated with network topology, deployment, capacity, troubleshooting, and support. Progentís CCIE professionals work closely with Cisco in-house staff in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS platform and devising fixes or acquiring software updates to resolve problems. Progent offers fast remote access to a CCIE so that you are able to receive timely assistance for tough network problems that are impacting worker productivity but are beyond the scope of your local IT service providers. Progent's CCIE support engineers can access your network via advanced remote connectivity tools to provide quick and cost-effective diagnosis and remediation of urgent network problems.
