CCIE SupportProgent's operational structure is designed to make top IT talent available on short notice and economically. Progent is unmatched in the IT consulting industry for the ability to offer convenient, rapid, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. Cisco-certified CCIEs are elite networking engineers who earn this prestigious certification by passing strenuous testing by Cisco.

CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the top recognition for networking consultants, and indicates a person's technical skills at the master level. Individuals who succeed in both of the mandatory tests, one written and one in a hands-on lab environment, are awarded a CCIE certificate from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE typically requires a minimum of three years of real-world experience designing, implementing, managing, and troubleshooting sophisticated Cisco networks. Earning a CCIE credential also demands a familiarity with Cisco devices and Cisco networking solutions, broad understanding of LAN/WAN 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 recognized as the most technically advanced IT certification by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a Cisco CCIE Consultant
The CCIE certification identifies experts with the knowledge and experience to succeed in the most difficult assignments in their field. The CCIE tests administered by Cisco are regularly revised to grow along with the state of the art, concentrating on current technologies and practical applications. The CCIE credential is active for two years, and to keep it current holders must take a Cisco renewal test. This ensures that CCIE engineers do not get stale or too focused in order that they can provide the latest approaches to a broad range of challenges involving the most advanced network and security products and technology.

CCIEs are a highly-select group of engineers. Less than 3% of all Cisco certified individuals make it to the CCIE credential, a tiny minority of information technology workers worldwide. In 2010, about 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were estimated to be in the US. Progent retains the skills of around a dozen CCIEs on its remote and on-site IT support group, which represents an exceptionally large number for an independent computer support firm.

CCIEs can handle the most complex issues associated with network planning, integration, administration, security, and repair. CCIEs operate on a privileged basis with Cisco's internal support staff in isolating problems with IOS Software network administration utilities and developing alternate approaches or obtaining software patches to correct problems. CCIEs are an excellent value since their depth of experience enables them to resolve seemingly intractable problems rapidly. In many instances, less seasoned engineers can burn up hours or days wrestling with a task that a certified CCIE can resolve in just a few minutes.

Most Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco technologies, but also have multiple recognized industry certifications including Microsoft MCSE, and a major network protection credential such as CISSP or CISA. This permits Progent to offer end-to-end solutions that address a wide array of technologies without incurring needless expenses and interruptions managing multiple specialists.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs work for large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their services are not readily available to small businesses. Progent is one of the few service organizations that makes CCIEs available to assist small and mid-size businesses. In addition, Progent offers quick access to a CCIE online so that you can receive immediate help for complex network problems that are hurting worker efficiency but are beyond the experience of your local IT maintenance personnel. Progent's CCIE engineers can tie into your network via state-of-the-art on-line support technology in order to perform fast and economical diagnosis and repair of urgent system problems.
