Cisco CCIE ConsultingProgent's organization is optimized to make top network support talent accessible quickly and for a reasonable cost. Progent is a leader in the network support industry for being able to provide easy, quick, and budget-friendly access to Cisco CCIEs. CCIEs are elite network professionals who earn this rare certification only after strenuous testing by Cisco.

CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the most advanced recognition for network professionals, and certifies an individual's technical knowledge at the expert level. Candidates who succeed in the two mandatory exams, 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 real-world experience designing, deploying, operating, and repairing large-scale Cisco environments. Earning a CCIE credential also requires experience with Cisco devices and Cisco networking software, broad understanding of Local Area Network and Wide Area Network mechanisms, and an in-depth understanding of the protocols associated with appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The elite CCIE credential has been voted the most technically advanced IT certification by CertMag.

The Skills of a Cisco CCIE Engineer
Cisco's CCIE credential recognizes experts with the knowledge and experience to succeed in the most challenging assignments in their field. The CCIE exams administered by Cisco are continually updated to evolve with network technology, focusing on contemporary technologies and practical problems. The CCIE credential is valid for two years, and to keep it current holders must pass a Cisco renewal test. This ensures that CCIE engineers do not become stale or too specialized in order that they can offer the latest solutions to the widest array of challenges involving the most advanced network and security technology.

CCIEs are an elite class of engineers. Less than 3% of all Cisco accredited individuals make it to the CCIE level, a small minority of IT workers in the industry. In 2010, about 5,000 CCIEs were located in the US. Progent offers the services of about 12 CCIE-certified engineers on its remote and on-site IT support group, which is an exceptionally large number for an independent small business IT support organization.

CCIEs can resolve the most challenging issues related to network planning, deployment, administration, protection, and repair. CCIEs operate on a privileged basis with Cisco's in-house support staff in identifying anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network administration utilities and coming up with alternate approaches or installing software updates to resolve problems. CCIEs are an excellent value because their depth of experience allows them to solve complex problems rapidly. In common cases, less seasoned engineers can burn up many hours or even days struggling with a problem that a certified CCIE can solve in just a few minutes.

Most Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco products, but also have a variety of advanced industry certifications including Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and a major network security credential such as CISSP or CISA. This allows Progent to offer complete services that address a wide range of technologies without incurring needless costs and delays managing multiple specialists.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large corporations or nationwide ISPs, and so their skills are not easily available to small businesses. Progent is among the few consulting organizations that makes CCIEs accessible to support small and medium sized businesses. Also, Progent can provide quick contact with a CCIE-certified consultant by phone so that you can receive immediate help for complex network issues that are impacting worker efficiency but are outside the experience of your ordinary network maintenance resources. Progent's CCIE support experts can tie into your network by means of sophisticated remote support technology in order to provide quick and economical diagnosis and repair of urgent system trouble.
