CCIE Professional HelpProgent's organizational structure is optimized to make top IT skills accessible quickly and for a reasonable cost. Progent is unmatched in the network support industry for the ability to offer easy, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). CCIEs are sought-after network professionals who earn this rare certification by passing strenuous testing by Cisco.

CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the top certification for network engineers, and indicates an individual's technical knowledge at the master level. Individuals who pass the two required exams, one written and the other in a lab environment, receive a CCIE certificate from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE usually takes a minimum of three years of practical seasoning designing, deploying, managing, and repairing complex Cisco environments. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also requires experience with Cisco hardware and Cisco networking software, extensive understanding of LAN and WAN technologies, and an in-depth understanding of the network protocols associated with appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The prestigious CCIE certification has been recognized as the most advanced information technology credential by CertMag.

The Skills of a Cisco CCIE Engineer
Cisco's CCIE certification recognizes consultants with the knowledge and experience to handle the most challenging assignments in networking. The CCIE tests given by Cisco are regularly updated to grow along with network technology, concentrating on current environments and real-world problems. The CCIE credential is active for two years, and to keep it current consultants have to pass a Cisco recertification exam. This guarantees that CCIEs don't become stale or too focused in order that they can provide the latest solutions to a broad range of challenges involving the most recent connectivity products and technology.

CCIEs are a highly-select group of engineers. Less than 3% of all Cisco certified professionals qualify for the CCIE level, a small minority of IT professionals in the industry. In 2010, around 5,000 CCIEs were registered in the United States. Progent offers the skills of around a dozen CCIEs on its phone-support and on-site network support team, which represents an exceptionally large number for a publicly accessible small business IT support organization.

CCIEs can resolve the most difficult problems associated with network design, integration, administration, security, and troubleshooting. CCIEs work with the highest priority with Cisco's internal support staff in identifying problems with IOS Software network management tools and developing workarounds or installing software patches to correct problems. CCIEs represent an excellent value because their depth of experience enables them to solve seemingly intractable problems rapidly. In many cases, less seasoned consultants can burn up many hours or even days struggling with a problem that a certified CCIE can solve in minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco products, but have a variety of advanced technical credentials including Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and a major security credential such as CISSP or CISM. This allows Progent to provide complete solutions that address a broad array of IT products without requiring needless costs and delays managing too many specialists.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
