Why is Being a CCIE-certified Consultant So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a world-class infrastructure specialist who earns this elite certification only after rigorous examinations given by Cisco. CCIE-certified consultants can handle the most complicated problems surrounding network deployment, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs operate directly with Cisco's in-house staff in identifying issues with IOS software and developing temporary alternatives or downloading program updates to correct problems. Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their help is not easily accessible to the general public.

CCIEs are highly-qualified networking experts who earn this top-level certification only through intense examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve the most complicated problems associated with network topology, setup, capacity, troubleshooting, and service. Progentís CCIE professionals cooperate intimately with Cisco in-house staff in identifying issues with Cisco's IOS platform and devising fixes or obtaining patches to resolve anomalies.
