Small company networks located in Wisconsin can rely on immediate phone-based access to a Cisco certified CCIE infrastructure engineer to resolve complex problems affecting your network. Progent retains the largest team of CCIE consultants available online of any independent service firm in the country. Rates are competitive, billing is by the minute, sign-up is immediate, and service is world class.

In case your Wisconsin business is outside of larger urban areas like Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, or Kenosha, access to authorized CCIE engineers may be unavailable during a crisis. This can cause a drop in revenue for your company. By calling Progent's remote support, you have access to a Cisco CCIE consultant ready to deliver the assistance to keep your network running.

Why is Support from a CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level networking engineer who qualifies for this prestigious certification only after strenuous testing administered by Cisco. A CCIE can tackle even the most complex issues involving network integration, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIEs operate freely with Cisco's in-house staff in analyzing issues with Cisco IOS software and coming up with workarounds or finding software updates to resolve bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their services are not readily available to the general public.

For companies in Wisconsin, Progent offers convenient, fast, and cost-effective remote help from Cisco certified CCIE consultants. CCIEs are elite networking gurus who earn this top-level classification only through strenuous testing by Cisco. CCIEs can handle even the most complex problems associated with network design, deployment, performance, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE experts cooperate closely with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS software and developing workarounds or obtaining patches to correct problems. Progent offers fast remote support from a CCIE so that you can receive timely assistance for complex network problems that are affecting worker productivity but are outside the scope of your usual network support providers. Progent's CCIE consulting experts can access your environment via state-of-the-art remote support tools to deliver rapid and affordable analysis and remediation of urgent network problems.
