CCIE ConsultingProgent's operational structure is designed to make the best network support skills available quickly and affordably. Progent is a leader in the IT consulting industry for the ability to offer easy, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. CCIEs are sought-after network engineers who qualify for this prestigious certification by passing intense examination by Cisco.

CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the top recognition for network engineers, and certifies a person's technical skills at the master level. Candidates who pass both of the required tests, one written and the other in a lab setting, receive a CCIE certificate from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE usually requires at least three years of practical experience designing, implementing, operating, and repairing complex Cisco environments. Earning a CCIE certificate also requires experience with Cisco hardware and network solutions, extensive understanding of LAN/WAN mechanisms, and an in-depth understanding of the network protocols used on routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The elite CCIE credential has been recognized as the most technically advanced information technology certification by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a CCIE Consultant
Cisco's CCIE credential identifies engineers with the skills and experience to succeed in the most challenging assignments in their field. The CCIE exams given by Cisco are continually revised to grow with network technology, concentrating on contemporary environments and practical applications. The CCIE credential is active for two years, and to keep it current engineers need to pass a Cisco recertification exam. This ensures that CCIE engineers don't become out of date or too specialized in order that they can offer the most advanced solutions to a broad array of challenges involving the most advanced networking technology.

CCIEs are a highly-select class of consultants. Below 3% of all Cisco accredited professionals qualify for the CCIE credential, a tiny minority of information technology professionals worldwide. In 2010, about 5,000 CCIEs were estimated to be in the US. Progent offers the services of about a dozen CCIEs on its remote and on-site IT support group, which represents an exceptionally large number for an independent computer support organization.

CCIEs can resolve the most challenging problems encountered in network planning, deployment, management, protection, and repair. CCIEs operate with the highest priority with Cisco's internal engineers in isolating problems with Cisco IOS Software network management tools and developing workarounds or obtaining software updates to resolve problems. CCIEs are an exceptional value because their deep expertise enables them to fix complex problems quickly. In common cases, less qualified engineers can burn up many hours or even days wrestling with a task that an experienced CCIE can solve in minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco technologies, but have a variety of recognized industry credentials such as Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and a major security certification such as CISA or CISM. This permits Progent to provide complete solutions that address a wide range of technologies without requiring needless expenses and interruptions orchestrating too many consultants.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or nationwide Internet providers, and so their services are not readily accessible to small businesses. Progent is among the rare consulting organizations that makes CCIEs available to support small and mid-size businesses. Also, Progent offers fast access to a CCIE-certified consultant by phone so that you can get immediate help for complex network problems that are hurting business efficiency but are beyond the experience of your local network maintenance resources. Progent's CCIE support experts can connect to your environment by means of sophisticated on-line troubleshooting technology in order to provide fast and affordable diagnosis and repair of critical system problems.
