CCIE Certified ExpertiseProgent's organization is optimized to make top information technology skills accessible on short notice and economically. Progent is unmatched in the network support industry for being able to provide convenient, rapid, and budget-friendly access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). CCIEs are sought-after network engineers who earn this rare certification by passing strenuous examination by Cisco.

CCIE is the top recognition for networking engineers, and indicates an individual's technical knowledge at the master level. Individuals who succeed in both of the required exams, one written and one in a lab environment, are awarded a CCIE credential from Cisco. CCIE certification typically requires a minimum of three years of real-world experience architecting, deploying, managing, and troubleshooting complex Cisco environments. Qualifying for a CCIE certificate also requires a familiarity with Cisco hardware and network solutions, broad understanding of LAN/WAN technologies, and a detailed understanding of the network protocols used on appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The prestigious CCIE credential has been recognized as the most technically advanced information technology credential by CertMag.

The Skills of a CCIE Consultant
The CCIE certification recognizes engineers 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 with the industry, focusing on contemporary environments and practical problems. The CCIE credential is valid for two years, and to renew it engineers have to take a Cisco recertification exam. This guarantees that CCIEs do not get out of date or overly focused so that they can offer the latest solutions to a broad array of challenges involving the most recent networking products and technology.

CCIEs are an elite group of engineers. Below 3% of all Cisco certified professionals qualify for the CCIE level, a small minority of information technology professionals worldwide. By 2010, about 5,000 CCIEs were located in the United States. Progent offers the skills of about a dozen CCIE-certified engineers on its remote and on-site network support group, which is an exceptionally high number for an independent small business IT support company.

CCIEs can handle the most complex issues related to network planning, deployment, administration, security, and repair. CCIEs work with the highest priority with Cisco's in-house support staff in identifying anomalies with IOS Software network management utilities and developing alternate approaches or installing software updates to resolve problems. CCIEs represent an exceptional value since their deep expertise allows them to resolve seemingly intractable problems quickly. In common instances, less qualified consultants can burn up many hours or days wrestling with a problem that a certified CCIE can resolve in just a few minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco networking solutions, but have multiple recognized technical credentials including Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and a major security certification such as CISSP or CISA. This permits Progent to offer complete solutions that incorporate a broad range of technologies without requiring extra expenses and interruptions managing multiple consultants.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their help is not easily available to the general public. Progent is among the few support organizations that makes CCIEs accessible to assist small and medium sized businesses. In addition, Progent can provide quick access to a CCIE-certified consultant online so that you can get immediate help for urgent network problems that are impacting worker efficiency but are beyond the scope of your ordinary IT support personnel. Progent's CCIE engineers can connect to your network by means of sophisticated remote support technology in order to perform quick and affordable diagnosis and repair of urgent system trouble.
