Cisco CCIE ConsultingProgent's operational structure is designed to make the best IT skills available quickly and affordably. Progent is a leader in the network support industry for the ability to provide convenient, rapid, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. CCIEs are sought-after networking engineers who earn this rare certification by passing strenuous testing by Cisco.

CCIE is the premier certification for networking professionals, and certifies a person's networking knowledge at the expert level. Candidates who succeed in both of the mandatory exams, one written and one in a lab environment, receive a CCIE credential from Cisco. CCIE certification usually takes a minimum of three years of practical seasoning architecting, implementing, managing, and troubleshooting large-scale Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also requires experience with Cisco hardware and network software, extensive knowledge of Local and Wide Area Network mechanisms, and an in-depth familiarity with the network protocols associated with routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The prestigious CCIE certification has been voted the most technically advanced IT certification by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a Cisco CCIE Consultant
CCIE credential identifies experts with the knowledge and experience to succeed in the most challenging assignments in networking. The CCIE exams administered by Cisco are continually revised to grow with the state of the art, concentrating on contemporary environments and practical applications. The CCIE certification is valid for two years, and to renew it holders have to pass a Cisco recertification exam. This ensures that CCIEs don't become stale or too focused in order that they can provide the most advanced solutions to the widest array of problems involving the most recent network and security products and technology.

CCIEs are a highly-select group of consultants. Less than 3% of all Cisco accredited professionals qualify for the CCIE credential, a tiny minority of IT professionals in the industry. In 2010, approximately 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were located in the US. Progent offers the services of around a dozen CCIEs on its remote and on-site network support group, which represents an exceptionally large number for an independent small business IT support firm.

CCIEs can resolve even the most difficult issues encountered in network design, deployment, administration, protection, and repair. CCIEs operate on a privileged basis with Cisco's in-house support staff in identifying anomalies with IOS Software network administration tools and coming up with workarounds or obtaining software updates to resolve problems. CCIEs are an excellent value because their depth of expertise enables them to solve complex problems quickly. In many cases, less qualified engineers can spend hours or days wrestling with a task that a certified CCIE can solve in a few minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco technologies, but also have multiple advanced technical credentials including Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and an important network protection credential such as CISSP or CISM. This allows Progent to provide complete services that incorporate a wide range of technologies without incurring extra expenses and delays managing multiple specialists.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their help is not readily accessible to small businesses. Progent is one of the rare consulting organizations that makes CCIEs accessible to support small and medium sized businesses. Also, Progent offers quick contact with a CCIE-certified consultant by phone so that you can receive timely support for urgent network issues that are hurting business productivity but are outside the scope of your ordinary network maintenance providers.
