CCIE ConsultantsProgent's organization is optimized to make the best network support skills available on short notice and affordably. Progent is unmatched in the IT consulting industry for being able to offer easy, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). CCIEs are sought-after networking engineers who qualify for this prestigious certification by passing intense testing by Cisco.

CCIE is the premier recognition for network engineers, and indicates an individual's technical skills at the expert level. Individuals who pass both of the mandatory tests, one written and one in a hands-on lab setting, receive a CCIE credential from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE typically requires a minimum of three years of practical seasoning architecting, deploying, operating, and troubleshooting sophisticated Cisco networks. Earning a CCIE certificate also requires experience with Cisco devices and network solutions, broad understanding of LAN/WAN mechanisms, and an in-depth understanding of the network protocols used on appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The elite CCIE certification has been recognized as the most advanced IT credential by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a CCIE Engineer
The CCIE certification identifies consultants with the skills and background to handle the most difficult assignments in their field. The CCIE tests administered by Cisco are continually updated to evolve with network technology, focusing on current technologies and practical applications. The CCIE certification is valid for two years, and to renew it holders need to take a Cisco renewal exam. This ensures that CCIEs don't get out of date or too focused so that they can offer the latest solutions to a broad array of challenges involving the most recent connectivity technology.

CCIEs are a highly-select group of engineers. Below 3% of all Cisco qualified individuals achieve the CCIE level, a small minority of information technology professionals worldwide. By 2010, about 5,000 CCIEs were registered in the US. Progent retains the skills of about a dozen CCIEs on its phone-support and on-site IT support team, which is an exceptionally large number for an independent computer support company.

CCIEs can handle even the most challenging issues involving network design, deployment, management, security, and troubleshooting. CCIEs operate closely with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying problems with Cisco IOS Software network management utilities and coming up with alternate approaches or installing software patches to correct problems. CCIEs are an excellent value because their depth of experience enables them to resolve seemingly intractable problems quickly. In common cases, less seasoned consultants can burn up many hours or even days wrestling with a task 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 a variety of advanced industry credentials such as Microsoft MCSE, and a major security credential such as CISSP or CISA. This allows Progent to provide end-to-end services that incorporate a wide range of technologies without incurring needless costs and delays orchestrating multiple consultants.
