CCIE Consulting FirmProgent's organizational structure is geared towards making top network support talent accessible quickly and affordably. Progent is unmatched in the network support industry for being able to provide easy, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. CCIEs are elite network engineers who earn this rare certification by passing strenuous testing by Cisco.

CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the top certification for networking professionals, and certifies a person's networking skills at the expert level. Individuals who pass the two mandatory exams, one written and one in a hands-on lab setting, receive a CCIE credential from Cisco. CCIE certification usually takes a minimum of three years of practical experience architecting, implementing, operating, and repairing large-scale Cisco environments. Earning a CCIE credential also requires experience with Cisco devices and network software, broad knowledge of Local Area Network and Wide Area Network mechanisms, and an in-depth familiarity with the network protocols used on appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The elite CCIE certification has been voted the most advanced information technology credential by CertMag.

The Skills of a Cisco CCIE Consultant
The CCIE certification recognizes engineers with the knowledge and experience to handle the most difficult assignments in networking. The CCIE exams administered by Cisco are continually revised to evolve with network technology, focusing on current environments and practical applications. The CCIE certification is active for two years, and to renew it holders must pass a Cisco renewal test. This ensures that CCIE engineers do not get stale or too focused so that they can provide the latest approaches to a broad array of challenges involving the most recent connectivity technology.

CCIEs are a highly-select class of engineers. Below 3% of all Cisco accredited individuals achieve the CCIE credential, a small minority of information technology professionals worldwide. In 2010, approximately 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were registered in the United States. Progent offers the skills of around a dozen CCIE-certified engineers on its phone-support and on-site IT support group, which represents an extraordinarily high number for an independent small business IT support organization.

CCIEs can resolve the most complex issues encountered in network planning, deployment, management, protection, and repair. CCIEs work closely with Cisco's internal engineers in identifying problems with IOS Software network management tools and developing workarounds or obtaining software updates to correct problems. CCIEs are an exceptional value because their depth of experience enables them to solve complex problems quickly. In many instances, less qualified consultants can spend hours or even days wrestling with a task that a certified CCIE can solve in a few minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco technologies, but have multiple advanced industry certifications such as Microsoft MCSE, and an important network protection certification such as CISA or CISM. This allows Progent to offer complete solutions that address a wide array of IT products without requiring extra costs and interruptions managing multiple consultants.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs work for large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their help is not easily accessible to the general public. Progent is one of the rare support firms that makes CCIEs available to assist small and medium sized companies. Also, Progent offers fast contact with a CCIE-certified consultant by phone so that you can receive immediate support for urgent network problems that are impacting worker productivity but are outside the scope of your ordinary IT maintenance resources. Progent's CCIE support experts can connect to your environment using state-of-the-art remote support technology in order to perform quick and affordable diagnosis and remediation of critical network problems.
