Cisco CCIE Consulting and Support ServicesProgent's operational structure is designed to make top network support skills accessible on short notice and for a reasonable cost. Progent is unmatched in the IT consulting arena for the ability to offer easy, rapid, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. Cisco-certified CCIEs are elite network professionals who earn this prestigious certification by passing strenuous testing by Cisco.

CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the premier certification for network consultants, and indicates a person's networking knowledge at the master level. Candidates who succeed in both of the mandatory exams, one written and one in a hands-on lab setting, are awarded a CCIE certificate from Cisco. CCIE certification typically takes at least three years of real-world seasoning designing, implementing, operating, and troubleshooting large-scale Cisco environments. Earning a CCIE credential also requires a familiarity with Cisco devices and network software, broad knowledge of LAN and WAN technologies, and an in-depth familiarity with the protocols associated with appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The prestigious CCIE credential has been recognized as the most advanced information technology certification by CertMag.

The Skills of a CCIE Consultant
The CCIE credential recognizes engineers with the knowledge and background to succeed in the most challenging assignments in networking. The CCIE exams given by Cisco are continually updated to grow with the industry, concentrating on contemporary environments and practical applications. The CCIE credential is active for two years, and to keep it current holders need to pass a Cisco renewal exam. This ensures that CCIE engineers do not get out of date or overly focused in order that they can offer the most advanced approaches to the widest array of challenges associated with the most recent network and security products and technology.

CCIEs are a select group of consultants. Below 3% of all Cisco accredited professionals make it to the CCIE credential, a tiny minority of IT professionals in the industry. By 2010, approximately 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were estimated to be in the United States. Progent retains the services of around 12 CCIEs on its remote and on-site IT support group, which represents an extraordinarily high number for a publicly accessible small business IT service firm.

CCIEs can resolve the most challenging problems involving network planning, deployment, administration, protection, and troubleshooting. CCIEs work on a privileged basis with Cisco's in-house support staff in identifying anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network administration utilities and developing workarounds or installing software updates to fix problems. CCIEs represent an exceptional value since their deep expertise enables them to solve seemingly intractable problems quickly. In common instances, less seasoned consultants can burn up hours or days struggling with a problem that an experienced CCIE can resolve in a few minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco technologies, but have multiple advanced industry certifications such as Microsoft MCSE, and an important network protection credential such as CISSP or CISA. This allows Progent to offer end-to-end services that address a wide array of IT products without incurring needless expenses and interruptions orchestrating too many specialists.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their services are not readily available to the general public. Progent is among the rare consulting organizations that makes CCIEs available to help small and mid-size companies. In addition, Progent offers quick contact with a CCIE by phone so that you can receive timely help for complex network problems that are impacting worker productivity but are beyond the scope of your local network maintenance personnel. Progent's CCIE support experts can connect to your environment by means of secure remote troubleshooting technology in order to perform quick and affordable analysis and remediation of urgent system problems.
