CCIE Consulting FirmsProgent's operational structure is geared towards making the best network support talent accessible on short notice and for a reasonable cost. Progent is a leader in the network support arena for the ability to provide easy, rapid, and budget-friendly access to Cisco CCIEs. Cisco-certified CCIEs are elite network professionals who earn this prestigious certification only after strenuous testing by Cisco.

CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the top certification for network engineers, and certifies an individual's technical skills at the expert level. Individuals who pass the two mandatory exams, one written and the other in a lab environment, are awarded a CCIE certificate from Cisco. CCIE certification usually takes a minimum of three years of real-world seasoning architecting, implementing, managing, and troubleshooting large-scale Cisco environments. Earning a CCIE certificate also demands a familiarity with Cisco hardware and network solutions, extensive understanding of Local and Wide Area Network mechanisms, and an in-depth understanding of the network protocols used on routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The prestigious CCIE certification has been voted the most advanced information technology certification by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a Cisco CCIE Engineer
Cisco's CCIE certification identifies experts with the skills and experience to handle the most difficult tasks in their field. The CCIE tests administered by Cisco are continually revised to evolve along with network technology, concentrating on current technologies and practical applications. The CCIE certification is active for two years, and to keep it current engineers have to pass a Cisco renewal exam. This guarantees that CCIEs don't get stale or too specialized in order that they can offer the most advanced solutions to a broad range of challenges involving the most current networking technology.

CCIEs are an elite group of engineers. Less than 3% of all Cisco qualified professionals qualify for the CCIE level, a small minority of information technology professionals worldwide. In 2010, approximately 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were registered in the US. Progent offers the skills of about a dozen CCIEs on its remote and on-site IT consulting team, which represents an extraordinarily high number for an independent computer service organization.

CCIEs can handle the most difficult issues encountered in network design, deployment, administration, protection, and troubleshooting. CCIEs operate with the highest priority with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying problems with Cisco IOS Software network administration utilities and developing alternate approaches or installing software patches to fix problems. CCIEs are an exceptional value because their depth of experience allows them to resolve complex problems rapidly. In common cases, less qualified engineers can burn up many hours or days struggling with a task that an experienced CCIE can resolve in minutes.

Most Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco networking solutions, but also have a variety of recognized industry credentials including Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and an important security certification such as CISA or CISM. This permits Progent to offer complete solutions that incorporate a broad range of IT products without incurring needless costs and delays orchestrating too many consultants.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs work for large enterprises or national ISPs, and so their help is not easily accessible to the general public. Progent is among the rare support providers that makes CCIEs accessible to help small and medium sized businesses. Also, Progent can provide fast access to a CCIE-certified consultant online so that you can receive timely help for urgent network problems that are impacting worker efficiency but are beyond the experience of your ordinary IT maintenance personnel.
