CCIE Certified Consulting FirmsProgent's organization is geared towards making the best information technology talent accessible quickly and economically. Progent is unmatched in the network support arena for being able to offer convenient, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). CCIEs are elite networking engineers who qualify for this rare certification by passing intense examination by Cisco.

CCIE is the top recognition for networking consultants, and indicates an individual's networking knowledge at the master level. Candidates who pass the two mandatory exams, one written and the other in a hands-on lab environment, are awarded a CCIE credential from Cisco. CCIE certification typically requires at least three years of real-world seasoning designing, implementing, operating, and repairing sophisticated Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also demands experience with Cisco devices and network software, broad knowledge of Local Area Network and Wide Area Network technologies, and a detailed understanding of the network protocols associated with appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The prestigious CCIE credential has been voted the most advanced IT certification by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a Cisco CCIE Consultant
CCIE credential recognizes engineers with the skills and background to handle the most challenging tasks in their field. The CCIE exams given by Cisco are continually revised to grow with the industry, focusing on current technologies and real-world applications. The CCIE certification is valid for two years, and to renew it consultants have to take a Cisco recertification test. This ensures that CCIE engineers do not get stale or too focused so that they can offer the latest approaches to a broad array of challenges associated with the most recent networking technology.

CCIEs are a highly-select class of consultants. Less than 3% of all Cisco certified individuals qualify for the CCIE level, a small fraction of information technology workers worldwide. In 2010, about 5,000 CCIEs were located in the United States. Progent offers the services of about 12 CCIEs on its phone-support and on-site network support group, which is an exceptionally large number for an independent computer service organization.

CCIEs can resolve even the most difficult problems involving network design, deployment, management, security, and troubleshooting. CCIEs work on a privileged basis with Cisco's in-house engineers in isolating problems with IOS Software network administration utilities and coming up with workarounds or obtaining software updates to fix problems. CCIEs represent an exceptional value because their depth of expertise allows them to solve complex problems quickly. In many cases, less seasoned engineers can burn up hours or even days wrestling with a problem that an experienced CCIE can resolve in just minutes.

Most Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco products, but have multiple advanced technical certifications such as Microsoft MCSE, and a major network security credential such as CISSP or CISA. This allows Progent to provide complete solutions that address a broad array of technologies without incurring needless costs and interruptions orchestrating multiple specialists.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or nationwide ISPs, and so their services are not readily available to small businesses. Progent is one of the few service firms that makes CCIEs accessible to help small and medium sized businesses. In addition, Progent offers fast contact with a CCIE by phone so that you can get timely help for complex network problems that are hurting business efficiency but are beyond the scope of your local IT support providers. Progent's CCIE engineers can tie into your network using secure on-line troubleshooting technology in order to provide fast and affordable analysis and remediation of urgent system problems.
