In case your Illinois small business is based beyond larger metropolitan neighborhoods including Chicago, Aurora, Rockford, or Naperville, help from authorized CCIE experts may be difficult to find during an emergency. This can cause a drop in income for your business. By contacting Progent, you can get in touch with a CCIE professional who can offer the assistance to keep your system operating.

Why is Being a Cisco CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE is a top-level networking professional who earns this ultimate title by completing tough testing administered by Cisco. CCIEs can tackle the most complex problems associated with network interfacing, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs operate directly with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying issues with Cisco IOS software and developing temporary alternatives or obtaining software patches to resolve bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large enterprises or national ISPs, and so their help is not easily accessible to small businesses.

For organizations throughout Illinois, Progent offers easy, fast, and cost-effective remote access to Cisco CCIE consultants. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are recognized network experts who are awarded this prestigious classification only through intense examination by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve the most complicated issues associated with network planning, configuration, optimization, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE professionals work closely with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS platform and devising workarounds or obtaining software updates to correct anomalies. Progent can provide prompt remote access to a CCIE so that you are able to receive timely assistance for complex network problems that are affecting business efficiency but are beyond the expertise of your usual network support providers. Progent's CCIE consulting experts can link to your environment via advanced online support tools to deliver quick and cost-effective diagnosis and remediation of urgent network difficulties.
