CCIE ConsultantsProgent's organizational structure is designed to make top network support skills available on short notice and for a reasonable cost. Progent is a leader in the IT consulting industry for being able to provide easy, rapid, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. Cisco-certified CCIEs are elite networking professionals who earn this prestigious certification by passing strenuous examination by Cisco.

CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the premier recognition for networking engineers, and certifies an individual's networking knowledge at the expert level. Candidates who succeed in the two mandatory exams, one written and one in a hands-on lab environment, receive a CCIE certificate from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE typically takes at least three years of real-world experience architecting, implementing, managing, and repairing complex Cisco environments. Qualifying for a CCIE certificate also requires a familiarity with Cisco devices and network software, extensive understanding of Local and Wide Area Network technologies, and an in-depth understanding of the network protocols used on routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The elite CCIE credential has been voted the most technically advanced IT credential by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a Cisco CCIE Consultant
Cisco's CCIE certification recognizes experts with the skills and background to handle the most difficult assignments in their field. The CCIE tests given by Cisco are regularly updated to evolve with network technology, concentrating on current 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 This ensures that CCIEs don't get out of date or overly focused so that they can offer the most advanced approaches to the widest array of challenges involving the most advanced networking products and technology.

CCIEs are an elite class of consultants. Below 3% of all Cisco accredited professionals make it to the CCIE level, a small fraction of IT workers worldwide. In 2010, around 5,000 CCIEs were estimated to be in the US. Progent retains the skills of around 12 CCIE-certified engineers on its phone-support and on-site IT consulting group, which represents an extraordinarily large number for an independent network support organization.

CCIEs can resolve even the most challenging issues involving network planning, deployment, administration, security, and repair. CCIEs operate on a privileged basis with Cisco's in-house support staff in identifying anomalies with IOS Software network management tools and developing alternate approaches or installing software patches to correct problems. CCIEs represent an exceptional value since their depth of expertise enables them to resolve complex problems quickly. In many cases, less qualified engineers can spend many hours or days wrestling with a problem that an experienced CCIE can solve in a few minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco technologies, but have a variety of advanced industry credentials such as Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and an important network protection credential such as CISA or CISM. This allows Progent to provide end-to-end services that address a broad array of technologies without requiring needless costs and interruptions managing multiple specialists.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national ISPs, and so their skills are not readily available to the general public. Progent is one of the rare service firms that makes CCIEs accessible to help small and mid-size companies. In addition, Progent can provide quick contact with a CCIE online so that you can receive immediate help for urgent network problems that are hurting worker efficiency but are outside the experience of your local network support resources. Progent's CCIE support experts can connect to your environment by means of sophisticated on-line support tools in order to perform quick and affordable analysis and repair of critical system trouble.
