CCIE Certified SupportProgent's organization is optimized to make the best network support skills accessible quickly and for a reasonable cost. Progent is unmatched in the IT consulting industry for being able to provide convenient, quick, and budget-friendly access to Cisco CCIEs. CCIEs are elite network engineers who earn this rare certification only after strenuous examination by Cisco.

CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the most advanced certification for networking engineers, and certifies a person's networking knowledge at the master level. Candidates who pass the two mandatory tests, one written and the other in a hands-on lab environment, are awarded a CCIE credential from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE typically takes a minimum of three years of real-world seasoning architecting, implementing, operating, and troubleshooting large-scale Cisco networks. Earning a CCIE credential also demands experience with Cisco devices and network software, broad knowledge of Local and Wide Area Network mechanisms, and an in-depth understanding of the network protocols used on appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The elite CCIE credential has been voted the most technically advanced IT certification by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a CCIE Consultant
Cisco's CCIE credential identifies experts with the knowledge and experience to handle the most challenging assignments in networking. The CCIE exams administered by Cisco are continually revised to grow along with the state of the art, focusing on contemporary technologies and real-world applications. The CCIE credential is active for two years, and to keep it current consultants need to pass a Cisco recertification test. This guarantees that CCIEs don't become out of date or overly specialized in order that they can provide the most advanced approaches to the widest range of problems involving the most advanced network and security products and technology.

CCIEs are an elite group of consultants. Below 3% of all Cisco qualified individuals qualify for the CCIE certification, a small minority of information technology workers worldwide. In 2010, about 5,000 CCIEs were estimated to be in the US. Progent offers the skills of about a dozen CCIE-certified engineers on its remote and on-site network support group, which is an extraordinarily large number for a publicly accessible computer service company.

CCIEs can resolve even the most complex issues involving network design, deployment, administration, security, and repair. CCIEs operate closely with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network administration tools and developing alternate approaches or obtaining software updates to correct problems. CCIEs are an exceptional value because their depth of expertise enables them to solve seemingly intractable problems rapidly. In many cases, less qualified consultants can spend hours or even days wrestling with a task that an experienced CCIE can resolve in a few minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco technologies, but also have a variety of advanced industry certifications such as Microsoft MCSE, and an important network protection credential such as CISSP or CISA. This permits Progent to offer end-to-end services that incorporate a broad array of technologies without incurring extra costs and delays orchestrating too many specialists.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs work for large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their help is not readily accessible to the general public. Progent is among the few consulting providers that makes CCIEs available to help small and mid-size companies. Also, Progent can provide quick access to a CCIE online so that you can get timely support for complex network problems that are hurting worker productivity but are outside the experience of your local IT maintenance personnel. Progent's CCIE consultants can connect to your environment by means of secure remote support tools in order to provide fast and economical diagnosis and repair of critical network trouble.
