Cisco CCIE EngineersProgent's operational structure is designed to make the best network support talent available on short notice and affordably. Progent is a leader in the network support industry for the ability to offer easy, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. Cisco-certified CCIEs are elite network professionals who qualify for this rare certification by passing intense examination by Cisco.

CCIE is the most advanced certification for networking engineers, and certifies an individual's networking skills at the master level. Candidates who succeed in both of the required tests, one written and the other in a hands-on lab environment, are awarded a CCIE credential from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE typically takes at least three years of real-world seasoning designing, deploying, managing, and repairing sophisticated Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also demands a familiarity with Cisco devices and network software, broad knowledge of Local Area Network and Wide Area Network mechanisms, and an in-depth understanding of the protocols associated with routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The prestigious CCIE certification has been voted the most technically advanced information technology certification by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a Cisco CCIE Consultant
The CCIE credential recognizes engineers with the skills and background to succeed in the most difficult tasks in networking. The CCIE exams administered by Cisco are continually updated to grow with the state of the art, concentrating on current environments and practical problems. The CCIE certification is active for two years, and to keep it current holders need to take a Cisco renewal exam. This ensures that CCIE engineers do not get stale or overly focused in order that they can provide the latest approaches to the widest range of problems associated with the most advanced connectivity products and technology.

CCIEs are a highly-select group of engineers. Less than 3% of all Cisco qualified individuals achieve the CCIE credential, a small fraction of IT workers worldwide. By 2010, approximately 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were located in the US. Progent offers the skills of around a dozen CCIEs on its phone-support and on-site IT support team, which represents an extraordinarily large number for an independent computer service firm.

CCIEs can handle the most difficult problems related to network design, deployment, management, protection, and troubleshooting. CCIEs operate on a privileged basis with Cisco's internal support staff in isolating problems with IOS Software network administration tools and developing alternate approaches or installing software updates to correct problems. CCIEs are an exceptional value since their depth of experience enables them to solve complex problems rapidly. In common instances, less qualified engineers can burn up hours or even days struggling with a task that a certified CCIE can resolve in a few minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco networking solutions, but have multiple recognized industry certifications including Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and an important network protection credential such as CISSP or CISA. This permits Progent to offer end-to-end services that incorporate a broad range of technologies without requiring extra expenses and interruptions orchestrating too many consultants.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs work for large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their skills are not easily available to small businesses. Progent is one of the few consulting providers that makes CCIEs accessible to assist small and mid-size companies. Also, Progent can provide fast contact with a CCIE online so that you can get timely support for complex network problems that are hurting business productivity but are outside the scope of your ordinary network maintenance resources.
