Small company IT networks situated within the state of Alaska can rely on immediate online contact with a Cisco qualified CCIE network consultant to resolve the toughest problems affecting their IT network. Progent retains the most extensive group of CCIE network consulting experts accessible remotely of any nationwide service firm in the U.S. The cost is affordable, charges are per minute, engagement is quick, and service is world class.

If your Alaska network is based beyond major metropolitan neighborhoods such as Anchorage, Juneau, or Fairbanks, contact with qualified CCIE experts is often difficult to find during a crisis. This can cause a drop in income for your company. By contacting Progent's online services, you have access to a CCIE consultant ready to offer the help to keep your computer network running.

Why is Being a CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A Cisco CCIE is a world-class network expert who earns this prestigious title only after rigorous testing administered by Cisco. CCIEs can tackle the most complex issues involving computer network deployment, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists communicate directly with Cisco's in-house staff in identifying issues with IOS software and developing temporary alternatives or finding software updates to fix bugs. Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their help is not easily accessible to the general public.

For small and midsize organizations anywhere in Alaska, Progent offers easy, quick, and cost-effective remote access to Cisco authorized CCIE support professionals. CCIEs are elite networking experts who earn this prestigious classification only after thorough examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle the most complex problems associated with network topology, implementation, performance, repair, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE professionals cooperate closely with Cisco in-house staff in identifying issues with Cisco's IOS platform and developing workarounds or obtaining software updates to correct problems. Progent offers prompt remote support from a CCIE so that you can get timely assistance for tough network issues that are affecting business efficiency but are beyond the expertise of your local network service resources. Progent's CCIE consulting experts can link to your environment using state-of-the-art online connectivity tools in order to provide rapid and affordable analysis and repair of critical network problems.
