CCIE Certified ConsultingProgent's operational structure is geared towards making top information technology talent available on short notice and economically. Progent is unmatched in the network support arena for the ability to offer convenient, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. CCIEs are elite network professionals who qualify for this rare certification only after strenuous testing by Cisco.

CCIE is the premier recognition for networking professionals, and indicates an individual's technical skills at the expert level. Candidates who succeed in the two mandatory tests, one written and the other in a hands-on lab environment, receive a CCIE credential from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE typically takes at least three years of real-world experience architecting, deploying, operating, and repairing complex Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE certificate also requires experience with Cisco hardware and Cisco networking software, extensive knowledge of LAN/WAN technologies, and an in-depth familiarity with the network protocols associated with routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The prestigious CCIE certification has been recognized as the most advanced IT credential by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a CCIE Engineer
Cisco's CCIE certification recognizes consultants with the skills and experience to handle the most difficult tasks in their field. The CCIE exams administered by Cisco are continually updated to grow with the state of the art, concentrating on current technologies and practical applications. The CCIE credential is active for two years, and to renew it holders have to pass a Cisco recertification exam. This guarantees that CCIEs don't get out of date or overly specialized in order that they can provide the latest solutions to the widest range of challenges associated with the most current connectivity technology.

CCIEs are a select group of consultants. Less than 3% of all Cisco qualified individuals qualify for the CCIE certification, a small minority of IT professionals worldwide. By 2010, around 5,000 CCIEs were estimated to be in the US. Progent retains the services of around 12 CCIE-certified engineers on its remote and on-site network support team, which represents an exceptionally high number for a publicly accessible network support firm.

CCIEs can handle the most difficult issues involving network planning, integration, administration, security, and repair. CCIEs work with the highest priority with Cisco's internal engineers in isolating problems with Cisco IOS Software network management utilities and developing alternate approaches or obtaining software updates to fix problems. CCIEs are an exceptional value since their deep expertise enables them to resolve complex problems rapidly. In many instances, less qualified engineers can burn up many hours or days struggling with a task that an experienced CCIE can resolve in just minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco technologies, but have a variety of recognized industry certifications including Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and an important security certification such as CISSP or CISM. This allows Progent to offer end-to-end solutions that incorporate a broad array of IT products without incurring extra costs and interruptions orchestrating too many consultants.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or nationwide Internet providers, and so their skills are not readily available to small businesses. Progent is among the few service firms that makes CCIEs available to support small and medium sized companies. In addition, Progent offers fast access to a CCIE by phone so that you can get timely support for urgent network issues that are hurting business productivity but are beyond the scope of your ordinary network maintenance resources. Progent's CCIE engineers can connect to your environment using secure remote support technology in order to perform fast and affordable analysis and remediation of urgent system problems.
