Cisco CCIE EngineersProgent's organization is optimized to make the best network support skills available quickly and affordably. Progent is unmatched in the IT consulting industry for the ability to offer easy, quick, and budget-friendly access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). CCIEs are sought-after network professionals who earn this prestigious certification by passing strenuous testing by Cisco.

CCIE is the premier certification for networking engineers, and certifies a person's technical knowledge at the expert level. Candidates who succeed in both of the mandatory exams, one written and the other in a lab setting, receive a CCIE credential from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE typically requires at least three years of practical experience architecting, implementing, managing, and troubleshooting large-scale Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE certificate also demands a familiarity with Cisco hardware and network solutions, extensive understanding of LAN and WAN mechanisms, and an in-depth familiarity with the network protocols used on routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The elite CCIE credential has been recognized as the most technically advanced IT credential by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a Cisco CCIE Engineer
Cisco's CCIE certification identifies experts with the skills and experience to succeed in the most difficult tasks in networking. The CCIE exams given by Cisco are continually revised to evolve along with the state of the art, concentrating on contemporary environments and practical problems. The CCIE credential is active for two years, and to renew it holders must take a Cisco recertification test. This guarantees that CCIE engineers don't become stale or too focused so that they can offer the latest approaches to the widest array of challenges associated with the most advanced network and security products and technology.

CCIEs are a highly-select group of consultants. Less than 3% of all Cisco certified individuals achieve the CCIE credential, a small minority of information technology workers worldwide. In 2010, approximately 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were estimated to be in the United States. Progent retains the skills of around 12 CCIE-certified engineers on its phone-support and on-site network consulting group, which represents an extraordinarily large number for a publicly accessible network service firm.

CCIEs can resolve the most challenging problems encountered in network planning, deployment, management, protection, and troubleshooting. CCIEs work on a privileged basis with Cisco's internal engineers in isolating problems with Cisco IOS Software network administration tools and coming up with alternate approaches or installing software updates to resolve problems. CCIEs represent an exceptional value because their depth of experience allows them to resolve seemingly intractable problems rapidly. In common cases, less seasoned consultants can spend many hours or even days wrestling with a problem that a certified CCIE can solve in just minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco technologies, but have a variety of advanced technical certifications including Microsoft MCSE, and an important security certification such as CISSP or CISM. This permits Progent to offer end-to-end services that incorporate a broad range of technologies without requiring needless expenses and interruptions managing multiple consultants.

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 easily accessible to the general public. Progent is one of the few service organizations that makes CCIEs available to assist small and mid-size businesses. In addition, Progent offers fast access to a CCIE online so that you can get timely support for complex network problems that are impacting worker productivity but are beyond the experience of your local IT maintenance providers. Progent's CCIE consultants can connect to your environment using the latest remote support technology in order to provide fast and economical analysis and remediation of urgent system trouble.
