CCIE Certified SupportProgent's organization is geared towards making top network support talent available quickly and economically. Progent is a leader in the IT consulting arena for being able to offer convenient, quick, and budget-friendly access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). CCIEs are elite networking professionals who qualify for this rare certification only after intense testing by Cisco.

CCIE is the top recognition for network consultants, and certifies an individual's technical skills at the master level. Individuals who succeed in the two mandatory exams, one written and one in a lab setting, receive a CCIE credential from Cisco. CCIE certification usually takes at least three years of practical experience architecting, deploying, managing, and troubleshooting sophisticated Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also demands a familiarity with Cisco hardware and Cisco networking solutions, broad understanding of Local Area Network and Wide Area Network technologies, and an in-depth familiarity with the network protocols associated with routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The elite CCIE credential has been voted the most technically advanced IT credential by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a Cisco CCIE Consultant
The CCIE credential recognizes engineers with the knowledge and experience to succeed in the most challenging assignments in networking. The CCIE tests given by Cisco are regularly updated to grow with the state of the art, concentrating on current technologies and real-world applications. The CCIE credential is active for two years, and to renew it holders must take a Cisco recertification test. This guarantees that CCIE engineers do not become stale or too focused in order that they can provide the latest solutions to a broad array of challenges associated with the most advanced networking technology.

CCIEs are an elite class of engineers. Below 3% of all Cisco qualified professionals make it to the CCIE credential, a small minority of IT professionals in the industry. By 2010, approximately 5,000 CCIEs were registered in the United States. Progent offers the skills of around 12 CCIE-certified engineers on its phone-support and on-site IT support group, which represents an extraordinarily large number for a publicly accessible small business IT service company.

CCIEs can handle even the most challenging issues associated with network planning, integration, management, protection, and repair. CCIEs operate with the highest priority with Cisco's internal support staff in isolating anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network management tools and developing workarounds or obtaining software patches to fix problems. CCIEs are an excellent value because their depth of expertise allows them to solve seemingly intractable problems rapidly. In common instances, less qualified engineers can spend hours or days wrestling with a task that an experienced CCIE can solve in minutes.

Most Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco technologies, but have a variety of recognized industry credentials such as Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and a major security credential such as CISSP or CISA. This permits Progent to offer end-to-end services that incorporate a broad range of IT products without incurring extra costs and interruptions managing too many specialists.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs work for large enterprises or nationwide ISPs, and so their services are not readily available to small businesses. Progent is among the few consulting firms that makes CCIEs accessible to support small and medium sized companies. Also, Progent offers fast access to a CCIE online so that you can receive immediate help for urgent network issues that are hurting worker efficiency but are outside the scope of your ordinary network support resources. Progent's CCIE support experts can tie into your environment by means of sophisticated on-line support tools in order to provide quick and affordable analysis and remediation of urgent network problems.
