CCIE Certified ConsultantsProgent's organizational structure is geared towards making the best IT talent accessible quickly and affordably. Progent is a leader in the IT consulting industry for the ability to provide easy, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. Cisco-certified CCIEs are sought-after network engineers who qualify for this prestigious certification by passing intense testing by Cisco.

CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the top recognition for networking engineers, and indicates a person's networking skills at the expert level. Individuals who pass the two mandatory exams, one written and one in a lab environment, receive a CCIE credential from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE usually requires at least three years of real-world seasoning designing, deploying, operating, and troubleshooting large-scale Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE certificate also demands experience with Cisco hardware and network solutions, broad understanding of Local Area Network and Wide Area Network technologies, and a detailed familiarity with the network protocols associated with appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The elite CCIE certification has been voted the most technically advanced information technology credential by CertMag.

The Skills of a Cisco CCIE Engineer
The CCIE credential recognizes experts with the knowledge and experience to handle the most difficult tasks in networking. The CCIE exams given by Cisco are continually revised to evolve with network technology, concentrating on contemporary environments and practical problems. The CCIE certification is active for two years, and to keep it current consultants have to pass a Cisco recertification test. This ensures that CCIEs don't get stale or too specialized in order that they can offer the most advanced approaches to a broad array of problems associated with the most advanced networking technology.

CCIEs are a select group of consultants. Below 3% of all Cisco certified professionals achieve the CCIE level, a small fraction of information technology workers worldwide. By 2010, about 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were registered in the US. Progent offers the services of about a dozen CCIEs on its remote and on-site network support group, which is an exceptionally high number for an independent computer support organization.

CCIEs can handle even the most challenging issues related to network design, integration, management, protection, and repair. CCIEs work closely with Cisco's in-house support staff in isolating problems with IOS Software network management tools and coming up with workarounds or obtaining software updates to resolve problems. CCIEs represent an exceptional value since their deep experience enables them to fix seemingly intractable problems rapidly. In common cases, less qualified engineers can spend hours or days struggling with a problem that an experienced CCIE can resolve in just minutes.

Most Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco networking solutions, but have multiple advanced technical certifications such as Microsoft MCSE, and a major security certification such as CISA or CISM. This permits Progent to offer comprehensive services that address a broad range of technologies without incurring needless costs and delays managing too many specialists.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their services are not easily accessible to the general public. Progent is among the few consulting organizations that makes CCIEs available to assist small and mid-size companies. Also, Progent can provide fast contact with a CCIE by phone so that you can get immediate support for urgent network issues that are impacting worker efficiency but are beyond the scope of your local IT support personnel. Progent's CCIE support experts can connect to your network by means of sophisticated on-line troubleshooting technology in order to perform fast and economical diagnosis and repair of urgent system trouble.
