CCIE Consulting FirmProgent's operational structure is designed to make top network support skills available quickly and for a reasonable cost. Progent is unmatched in the IT consulting industry for being able to provide convenient, rapid, and budget-friendly access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). Cisco-certified CCIEs are sought-after network professionals who qualify for this prestigious certification by passing strenuous examination by Cisco.

CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the top recognition for networking consultants, and indicates a person's networking skills at the expert level. Candidates who pass both of the required tests, one written and one in a hands-on lab environment, are awarded a CCIE certificate from Cisco. CCIE certification typically requires a minimum of three years of real-world seasoning architecting, implementing, managing, and repairing sophisticated Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also demands a familiarity with Cisco hardware and network solutions, extensive understanding of Local Area Network and Wide Area Network mechanisms, and a detailed familiarity with the protocols used on appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The prestigious CCIE credential has been recognized as the most technically advanced information technology certification by CertMag.

The Skills of a CCIE Engineer
CCIE credential recognizes engineers with the knowledge and experience to succeed in the most difficult assignments in networking. The CCIE exams administered by Cisco are continually revised to grow with network technology, concentrating on contemporary environments and real-world problems. The CCIE certification is active for two years, and to renew it holders must take a Cisco renewal test. This guarantees that CCIEs don't become out of date or too specialized in order that they can provide the most advanced approaches to the widest range of problems associated with the most current network and security technology.

CCIEs are a highly-select class of engineers. Below 3% of all Cisco certified individuals achieve the CCIE credential, a small fraction of IT workers in the industry. By 2010, around 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were registered in the United States. Progent offers the skills of around 12 CCIEs on its remote and on-site network consulting group, which is an exceptionally high number for a publicly accessible computer support firm.

CCIEs can handle even the most complex issues related to network planning, deployment, management, protection, and repair. CCIEs work closely with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying anomalies with IOS Software network administration tools and developing workarounds or installing software updates to correct problems. CCIEs are an excellent value because their deep expertise allows them to fix complex problems quickly. In many cases, less qualified consultants can burn up many hours or days struggling with a task that a certified CCIE can resolve in a few minutes.

Most Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco networking solutions, but also have a variety of recognized industry credentials such as Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and an important security credential such as CISA or CISM. This permits Progent to provide end-to-end services that incorporate a wide array of IT products without incurring needless expenses and interruptions orchestrating too many consultants.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their skills are not easily accessible to the general public. Progent is among the few service organizations that makes CCIEs accessible to help small and mid-size businesses. Also, Progent offers quick contact with a CCIE by phone so that you can get timely help for urgent network problems that are hurting worker productivity but are outside the experience of your ordinary IT support providers.
