Cisco CCIE Professional HelpProgent's organization is optimized to make the best network support talent accessible quickly and affordably. Progent is unmatched in the network support industry for the ability to provide easy, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). CCIEs are sought-after network professionals who qualify for this rare certification only after strenuous testing by Cisco.

CCIE is the most advanced certification for networking professionals, and certifies a person's networking knowledge at the master level. Individuals who succeed in the two mandatory tests, one written and the other in a lab setting, receive a CCIE credential from Cisco. CCIE certification typically takes at least three years of real-world seasoning architecting, implementing, operating, and repairing sophisticated Cisco networks. Earning a CCIE certificate also requires experience with Cisco devices and Cisco networking solutions, broad understanding of Local Area Network and Wide Area Network technologies, and an in-depth familiarity with the protocols associated with appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The prestigious CCIE certification has been voted the most advanced IT credential by CertMag.

The Skills of a CCIE Consultant
Cisco's CCIE certification recognizes consultants with the skills and background to succeed in the most challenging assignments in networking. The CCIE tests administered by Cisco are continually updated to grow along with the industry, focusing on contemporary technologies and real-world problems. The CCIE credential is valid for two years, and to keep it current engineers must pass a Cisco recertification exam. This ensures that CCIE engineers don't become stale or too specialized in order that they can offer the most advanced solutions to the widest array of challenges involving the most recent connectivity technology.

CCIEs are a highly-select class of engineers. Below 3% of all Cisco accredited professionals make it to the CCIE level, a small minority of information technology professionals worldwide. In 2010, approximately 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were estimated to be in the United States. Progent retains the services of around 12 CCIE-certified engineers on its remote and on-site network consulting group, which represents an extraordinarily high number for a publicly accessible small business IT support company.

CCIEs can resolve even the most difficult problems associated with network design, integration, management, security, and repair. CCIEs operate closely with Cisco's in-house engineers in isolating anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network management utilities and developing alternate approaches or installing software patches to fix problems. CCIEs are an excellent value because their depth of experience allows them to fix complex problems rapidly. In common cases, less seasoned engineers can burn up hours or days struggling with a problem that an experienced CCIE can resolve in minutes.

Most Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco products, but have multiple recognized industry certifications such as Microsoft MCSE, and an important network security credential such as CISSP or CISA. This permits Progent to offer comprehensive solutions that incorporate a wide range of IT products without requiring extra costs and interruptions managing multiple consultants.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs work for large corporations or national ISPs, and so their help is not easily accessible to the general public. Progent is one of the few consulting providers that makes CCIEs available to help small and mid-size businesses. In addition, Progent offers fast access to a CCIE-certified consultant by phone so that you can get timely support for urgent network issues that are hurting business productivity but are outside the experience of your ordinary IT maintenance providers. Progent's CCIE engineers can connect to your environment using state-of-the-art remote troubleshooting tools in order to provide quick and affordable diagnosis and repair of critical system trouble.
