CCIE Certified Consulting FirmsProgent's organizational structure is designed to make the best information technology skills accessible quickly and for a reasonable cost. Progent is a leader in the network support industry for being able to provide convenient, rapid, and budget-friendly access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). CCIEs are elite networking professionals who earn this rare certification only after intense examination by Cisco.

CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the top recognition for network engineers, and indicates an individual's technical skills at the master level. Candidates who pass both of the mandatory tests, one written and the other in a lab setting, are awarded a CCIE certificate from Cisco. CCIE certification usually requires a minimum of three years of real-world seasoning architecting, implementing, operating, and repairing large-scale Cisco environments. Qualifying for a CCIE certificate also requires a familiarity with Cisco devices and Cisco networking solutions, broad understanding of Local and Wide Area Network technologies, and a detailed familiarity with the protocols associated with appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The elite CCIE certification has been voted the most technically advanced IT certification by CertMag.

The Skills of a Cisco CCIE Consultant
CCIE certification recognizes engineers with the skills and experience to succeed in the most difficult tasks in their field. The CCIE tests given by Cisco are continually updated to evolve with network technology, focusing on contemporary environments and practical applications. The CCIE certification is active for two years, and to renew it holders need to take a Cisco renewal test. This ensures that CCIE engineers don't get stale or overly focused in order that they can offer the most advanced solutions to a broad range of problems associated with the most recent network and security products and technology.

CCIEs are a select group of engineers. Below 3% of all Cisco qualified individuals achieve the CCIE certification, a tiny minority of IT workers in the industry. In 2010, approximately 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were estimated to be in the United States. Progent offers the services of around 12 CCIEs on its remote and on-site IT support group, which is an exceptionally high number for an independent small business IT support firm.

CCIEs can resolve the most difficult problems associated with network planning, integration, management, security, and repair. CCIEs work with the highest priority with Cisco's internal engineers in isolating anomalies with IOS Software network management utilities and developing alternate approaches or installing software patches to resolve problems. CCIEs are an excellent value since their depth of expertise allows them to resolve complex problems rapidly. In many cases, less qualified engineers can spend hours or days struggling with a task that an experienced CCIE can solve in just minutes.

Most Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco technologies, but have a variety of advanced industry certifications including Microsoft MCSE, and an important network protection certification such as CISSP or CISM. This allows Progent to offer end-to-end services that address a broad range of IT products without incurring needless costs and delays orchestrating too many consultants.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs work for large corporations or nationwide ISPs, and so their help is not readily accessible to the general public. Progent is among the few support organizations that makes CCIEs accessible to assist small and mid-size businesses. Also, Progent offers quick contact with a CCIE-certified consultant online so that you can receive timely support for complex network issues that are impacting business efficiency but are beyond the experience of your ordinary network support personnel.
