Cisco CCIE Consulting and Support ServicesProgent's operational structure is optimized to make top IT talent available on short notice and affordably. Progent is a leader in the IT consulting arena for being able to provide convenient, quick, and budget-friendly access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). Cisco-certified CCIEs are sought-after networking professionals who qualify for this rare certification by passing intense examination by Cisco.

CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the top certification for network professionals, and certifies an individual's technical knowledge at the expert level. Candidates who succeed in both of the mandatory exams, one written and one in a lab setting, are awarded a CCIE credential from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE typically requires at least three years of real-world seasoning architecting, implementing, operating, and repairing sophisticated Cisco environments. Qualifying for a CCIE certificate also requires a familiarity with Cisco devices and Cisco networking solutions, extensive understanding of Local and Wide Area Network technologies, and a detailed familiarity with the network protocols used on appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The prestigious CCIE certification has been recognized as the most advanced IT credential by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a Cisco CCIE Consultant
Cisco's CCIE certification identifies engineers with the skills and experience to handle the most difficult assignments in networking. The CCIE exams given by Cisco are regularly revised to evolve along with the state of the art, focusing on current environments and practical problems. The CCIE credential is active for two years, and to renew it engineers must pass a Cisco renewal test. This guarantees that CCIE engineers don't become out of date or too specialized in order that they can offer the most advanced approaches to a broad range of problems involving the most current connectivity products and technology.

CCIEs are a highly-select group of engineers. Less than 3% of all Cisco accredited professionals qualify for the CCIE certification, a small minority of IT workers in the industry. By 2010, approximately 5,000 CCIEs were estimated to be in the United States. Progent retains the skills of about 12 CCIEs on its remote and on-site network consulting team, which represents an extraordinarily high number for an independent computer service firm.

CCIEs can resolve even the most difficult problems encountered in network design, deployment, management, security, and repair. CCIEs work closely with Cisco's in-house support staff in isolating problems with Cisco IOS Software network administration tools and developing alternate approaches or obtaining software updates to correct problems. CCIEs represent an excellent value because their deep expertise enables them to solve seemingly intractable problems quickly. In many instances, less seasoned consultants can burn up many hours or days struggling with a task that a certified CCIE can solve in minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco products, but also have multiple advanced industry credentials including Microsoft MCSE, and an important network security certification such as CISSP or CISA. This allows Progent to offer end-to-end services that address a wide array of IT products without requiring extra expenses and delays managing multiple specialists.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or nationwide Internet providers, and so their skills are not readily available to small businesses. Progent is one of the rare support organizations that makes CCIEs accessible to support small and mid-size businesses. Also, Progent can provide fast contact with a CCIE-certified consultant by phone so that you can receive timely support for complex network problems that are hurting business efficiency but are beyond the experience of your ordinary network support providers.
