Cisco CCIE SupportProgent's organization is optimized to make the best information technology skills accessible on short notice and affordably. Progent is a leader in the IT consulting industry for the ability to provide convenient, rapid, and budget-friendly access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). Cisco-certified CCIEs are sought-after network engineers who earn this rare certification only after intense testing by Cisco.

CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the top recognition for networking consultants, and indicates an individual's networking skills at the expert level. Individuals who succeed in the two mandatory tests, one written and the other in a lab setting, are awarded a CCIE credential from Cisco. CCIE certification typically requires at least three years of real-world experience designing, implementing, operating, and repairing large-scale Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also demands experience with Cisco hardware and network solutions, broad knowledge of LAN/WAN technologies, and a detailed familiarity with the network protocols associated with appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The prestigious CCIE credential has been recognized as the most technically advanced IT credential by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a CCIE Consultant
The CCIE credential identifies consultants with the skills and experience to succeed in the most challenging assignments in networking. The CCIE tests administered by Cisco are continually updated to grow along with the industry, concentrating on contemporary technologies and practical problems. The CCIE certification is valid for two years, and to keep it current holders need to take a Cisco renewal test. This guarantees that CCIEs do not become stale or too focused in order that they can offer the latest solutions to the widest range of challenges associated with the most advanced connectivity technology.

CCIEs are a highly-select class of consultants. Less than 3% of all Cisco certified individuals achieve the CCIE level, a tiny minority of IT workers in the industry. By 2010, about 5,000 CCIEs were registered in the US. Progent retains the skills of around a dozen CCIEs on its remote and on-site network support team, which is an extraordinarily large number for a publicly accessible computer support company.

CCIEs can handle the most difficult issues associated with network design, deployment, management, protection, and repair. CCIEs work closely with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying anomalies with IOS Software network administration utilities and developing workarounds or installing software updates to resolve problems. CCIEs are an excellent value since their depth of expertise allows them to resolve complex problems rapidly. In many cases, less qualified engineers can spend hours or days wrestling with a problem that a certified CCIE can solve in just minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco networking solutions, but have multiple advanced technical certifications including Microsoft MCSE, and a major network security certification such as CISSP or CISA. This permits Progent to offer end-to-end solutions that address a broad array of IT products without requiring extra costs and interruptions managing multiple consultants.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or national ISPs, and so their help is not easily accessible to small businesses. Progent is among the rare support organizations that makes CCIEs accessible to assist small and mid-size businesses. Also, Progent can provide quick contact with a CCIE online so that you can get immediate help for urgent network issues that are hurting worker efficiency but are beyond the experience of your local network maintenance providers. Progent's CCIE engineers can tie into your environment using the latest remote troubleshooting tools in order to provide quick and affordable diagnosis and remediation of critical system problems.
