CCIE Consulting and Support ServicesProgent's operational structure is geared towards making top IT skills available quickly and economically. Progent is unmatched in the IT consulting industry for the ability to provide easy, quick, and budget-friendly access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). Cisco-certified CCIEs are elite networking engineers who earn this rare certification only after strenuous examination by Cisco.

CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the premier recognition for network professionals, and indicates a person's networking knowledge at the master level. Candidates who succeed in both of the required tests, one written and the other in a lab setting, are awarded a CCIE certificate from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE usually requires at least three years of practical seasoning designing, deploying, managing, and repairing large-scale Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also requires experience with Cisco hardware and Cisco networking software, extensive understanding of LAN/WAN mechanisms, and a detailed understanding of the network protocols used on routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The prestigious CCIE credential has been voted the most technically advanced IT certification by CertMag.

The Skills of a CCIE Engineer
Cisco's CCIE certification recognizes experts with the knowledge and experience to handle the most challenging tasks in networking. The CCIE exams given by Cisco are continually updated to evolve along with the industry, focusing on contemporary environments and real-world applications. The CCIE credential is valid for two years, and to keep it current engineers have to take a Cisco recertification exam. This guarantees that CCIE engineers don't get out of date or too specialized so that they can offer the most advanced approaches to the widest array of problems involving the most recent network and security products and technology.

CCIEs are an elite class of engineers. Less than 3% of all Cisco qualified professionals achieve the CCIE level, a small fraction of information technology workers worldwide. In 2010, about 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were estimated to be in the United States. Progent offers the skills of about a dozen CCIEs on its remote and on-site IT consulting group, which represents an extraordinarily large number for a publicly accessible computer service firm.

CCIEs can handle the most complex problems associated with network design, integration, management, security, and troubleshooting. CCIEs work with the highest priority with Cisco's internal engineers in identifying anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network administration utilities and developing alternate approaches or obtaining software patches to fix problems. CCIEs are an exceptional value since their depth of expertise allows them to solve complex problems quickly. In many instances, less qualified engineers can burn up many hours or days wrestling with a task that a certified CCIE can resolve in just minutes.

Most Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco products, but have multiple recognized technical certifications such as Microsoft MCSE, and a major network protection credential such as CISSP or CISM. This allows Progent to offer end-to-end solutions that address a wide array of technologies without requiring needless costs and delays managing too many consultants.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their services are not readily accessible to the general public. Progent is one of the rare support providers that makes CCIEs available to help small and mid-size businesses. Also, Progent offers fast contact with a CCIE online so that you can get immediate support for complex network problems that are hurting worker efficiency but are outside the experience of your local IT support providers. Progent's CCIE engineers can tie into your network via sophisticated remote support tools in order to provide fast and economical analysis and repair of critical network trouble.
