Cisco CCIE SupportProgent's organization is designed to make top IT skills available on short notice and for a reasonable cost. Progent is a leader in the network support arena for being able to offer easy, quick, and budget-friendly access to Cisco CCIEs. CCIEs are sought-after networking professionals who qualify for this rare certification by passing strenuous examination by Cisco.

CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the premier recognition for networking professionals, and certifies a person's networking skills at the expert level. Candidates who pass the two mandatory exams, one written and one in a lab setting, are awarded a CCIE credential from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE typically takes a minimum of three years of real-world experience architecting, deploying, managing, and troubleshooting complex Cisco environments. Qualifying for a CCIE certificate also demands experience with Cisco devices and network software, broad knowledge 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 security devices. The elite CCIE credential has been recognized as the most advanced information technology credential by CertMag.

The Skills of a Cisco CCIE Consultant
The CCIE certification recognizes consultants with the knowledge and experience to handle the most difficult assignments in their field. The CCIE exams given by Cisco are regularly updated to evolve with the industry, concentrating on contemporary environments and practical problems. The CCIE credential is valid for two years, and to keep it current engineers must take a Cisco renewal exam. This guarantees that CCIEs don't become out of date or overly focused in order that they can offer the latest solutions to the widest range of challenges involving the most recent connectivity technology.

CCIEs are a highly-select class of engineers. Less than 3% of all Cisco qualified individuals qualify for the CCIE certification, a tiny minority of information technology professionals worldwide. By 2010, around 5,000 CCIEs were located in the US. Progent retains the skills of about a dozen CCIE-certified engineers on its phone-support and on-site network consulting team, which represents an exceptionally large number for an independent network support company.

CCIEs can resolve the most challenging problems related to network design, deployment, administration, protection, and troubleshooting. CCIEs operate closely with Cisco's in-house support staff in identifying problems with Cisco IOS Software network administration utilities and coming up with workarounds or obtaining software patches to correct problems. CCIEs are an excellent value since their depth of experience enables them to fix complex problems rapidly. In many cases, less qualified consultants can burn up many hours or days wrestling with a problem that an experienced CCIE can solve in minutes.

Most Progent CCIEs are not only expert at 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 permits Progent to offer comprehensive solutions that address a broad range of technologies without incurring extra expenses and delays managing too many consultants.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their help is not readily accessible to the general public. Progent is among the rare service firms that makes CCIEs available to support small and medium sized businesses. Also, Progent offers quick access to a CCIE-certified consultant by phone so that you can receive timely help for urgent network issues that are impacting business efficiency but are outside the experience of your ordinary IT support personnel. Progent's CCIE consultants can tie into your environment by means of state-of-the-art remote support technology in order to perform fast and economical analysis and repair of critical network problems.
