Cisco CCIE Consulting FirmProgent's operational structure is geared towards making top IT talent accessible quickly and affordably. Progent is a leader in the network support industry for being able to provide easy, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. CCIEs are sought-after network professionals who earn this rare certification only after strenuous examination by Cisco.

CCIE is the most advanced certification for network professionals, and indicates an individual's technical knowledge at the master level. Individuals who pass the two required exams, one written and the other in a hands-on lab environment, are awarded a CCIE certificate from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE typically takes a minimum of three years of practical experience architecting, implementing, operating, and troubleshooting large-scale Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE certificate also demands a familiarity with Cisco devices and Cisco networking solutions, extensive knowledge of Local Area Network and Wide Area Network mechanisms, and a detailed familiarity with the protocols used on appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The elite CCIE certification has been recognized as the most technically advanced information technology certification by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a CCIE Consultant
Cisco's CCIE certification recognizes consultants with the skills and background to succeed in the most challenging tasks in networking. The CCIE exams given by Cisco are regularly revised to grow with network technology, focusing on contemporary environments and practical applications. The CCIE credential is active for two years, and to renew it holders need to pass a Cisco renewal exam. This ensures that CCIE engineers do not get out of date or too specialized so that they can provide the latest solutions to a broad array of challenges involving the most current connectivity technology.

CCIEs are an elite class of consultants. Below 3% of all Cisco qualified professionals make it to the CCIE credential, a small fraction of IT professionals worldwide. In 2010, about 5,000 CCIEs were located in the US. Progent retains the skills of about 12 CCIEs on its phone-support and on-site IT consulting group, which is an exceptionally high number for a publicly accessible network service firm.

CCIEs can resolve even the most difficult issues related to network design, deployment, administration, security, and troubleshooting. CCIEs operate with the highest priority with Cisco's internal engineers in identifying problems with IOS Software network administration tools and coming up with alternate approaches or obtaining software patches to correct problems. CCIEs represent an excellent value because their deep expertise enables them to fix seemingly intractable problems quickly. In many instances, less qualified consultants can spend many hours or even days wrestling with a problem that an experienced CCIE can resolve in just minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco products, but have a variety of advanced technical credentials such as Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and an important network security credential such as CISSP or CISM. This permits Progent to offer end-to-end solutions that incorporate a broad range of technologies without incurring needless expenses and interruptions orchestrating too many specialists.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs work for large enterprises or nationwide ISPs, and so their help is not readily available to small businesses. Progent is among the rare consulting firms that makes CCIEs accessible to support small and mid-size businesses. Also, Progent can provide quick access to a CCIE-certified consultant by phone so that you can receive immediate help for urgent network problems that are impacting worker efficiency but are outside the scope of your ordinary IT support resources. Progent's CCIE engineers can connect to your environment using the latest on-line troubleshooting tools in order to provide fast and economical diagnosis and repair of critical network problems.
