CCIE ConsultantsProgent's operational structure is designed to make the best information technology talent available on short notice and for a reasonable cost. Progent is unmatched in the IT consulting industry for being able to provide easy, rapid, and budget-friendly access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). Cisco-certified CCIEs are elite networking engineers who earn this prestigious certification by passing strenuous testing by Cisco.

CCIE is the top recognition for network professionals, and indicates a person's technical knowledge at the master level. Individuals who pass the two required exams, one written and one in a lab setting, are awarded a CCIE credential from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE typically takes at least three years of practical seasoning designing, deploying, managing, and repairing sophisticated Cisco environments. Earning a CCIE credential also demands experience with Cisco hardware and Cisco networking software, broad understanding of LAN/WAN technologies, and an in-depth familiarity with the protocols associated with routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The elite CCIE credential has been recognized as the most technically advanced information technology certification by CertMag.

The Skills of a CCIE Consultant
CCIE certification recognizes experts with the knowledge and experience to handle the most difficult assignments in networking. The CCIE tests administered by Cisco are continually revised to grow with the industry, concentrating on current environments and practical applications. The CCIE credential is valid for two years, and to renew it consultants must take a Cisco recertification exam. This guarantees that CCIE engineers do not get out of date or overly focused in order that they can offer the most advanced approaches to the widest array of challenges associated with the most current connectivity products and technology.

CCIEs are an elite class of consultants. Below 3% of all Cisco certified professionals qualify for the CCIE credential, a tiny minority of information technology workers worldwide. In 2010, approximately 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were estimated to be in the United States. Progent retains the services of around a dozen CCIEs on its remote and on-site network consulting group, which is an extraordinarily high number for a publicly accessible network service company.

CCIEs can handle the most challenging issues associated with network design, deployment, administration, security, and repair. CCIEs work with the highest priority with Cisco's internal engineers in identifying problems with Cisco IOS Software network administration utilities and developing workarounds or installing software updates to correct problems. CCIEs are an excellent value since their deep experience enables them to resolve seemingly intractable problems quickly. In many instances, less qualified engineers can burn up many hours or days struggling with a problem that an experienced CCIE can resolve in just a few minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco products, but have a variety of advanced technical certifications including Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and a major network protection certification such as CISSP or CISM. This permits Progent to provide comprehensive services that incorporate a broad array of technologies without incurring needless costs and delays orchestrating too many specialists.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their help is not readily accessible to the general public. Progent is one of the few support organizations that makes CCIEs accessible to support small and mid-size businesses. In addition, Progent can provide fast access to a CCIE online so that you can receive timely support for complex network issues that are hurting business efficiency but are beyond the scope of your ordinary IT maintenance resources. Progent's CCIE engineers can connect to your environment by means of secure remote troubleshooting tools in order to perform quick and affordable analysis and remediation of critical system problems.
