Progent's organizational structure is geared towards making top network support talent available quickly and affordably. Progent is unmatched in the network support industry for the ability to provide easy, quick, and budget-friendly access to Cisco CCIEs. Cisco-certified CCIEs are sought-after network professionals who earn this rare certification only after intense examination by Cisco.
CCIE is the premier certification for network professionals, and indicates an individual's technical skills at the expert level. Individuals who pass the two required exams, one written and the other in a lab setting, are awarded a CCIE credential from Cisco. CCIE certification typically requires a minimum of three years of real-world seasoning architecting, implementing, operating, and troubleshooting complex Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also demands experience with Cisco hardware and Cisco networking software, broad knowledge of Local and Wide Area Network mechanisms, and a detailed familiarity with the protocols associated with routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The elite CCIE certification has been voted the most advanced information technology certification by CertMag.
The Skills of a CCIE Engineer
The CCIE credential recognizes experts with the knowledge and experience to handle the most difficult tasks in their field. The CCIE tests administered by Cisco are regularly revised to evolve along with network technology, focusing on contemporary technologies and real-world problems. The CCIE certification is active for two years, and to keep it current engineers need to pass a Cisco renewal test. This guarantees that CCIEs don't become stale or overly focused in order that they can offer the most advanced approaches to the widest range of problems associated with the most recent network and security technology.
CCIEs are a highly-select class of consultants. Below 3% of all Cisco certified individuals qualify for the CCIE credential, a small fraction of information technology professionals in the industry. In 2010, approximately 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were located in the United States. Progent offers the skills of about a dozen CCIEs on its phone-support and on-site network support group, which represents an exceptionally large number for a publicly accessible computer service organization.
CCIEs can resolve even the most difficult problems encountered in network planning, deployment, administration, protection, and troubleshooting. CCIEs operate closely with Cisco's in-house support staff in identifying anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network management utilities and coming up with alternate approaches or installing software patches to fix problems. CCIEs represent an exceptional value because their deep expertise enables them to solve seemingly intractable problems quickly. In common instances, less seasoned consultants can spend many hours or days struggling with a problem that a certified CCIE can resolve in just minutes.
Most Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco technologies, but also have multiple recognized industry credentials such as Microsoft MCSE, and a major network protection certification such as CISA or CISM. This allows Progent to offer comprehensive solutions that address a broad array of technologies without incurring extra expenses and delays managing multiple specialists.
Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their services are not easily available to the general public. Progent is one of the few consulting organizations that makes CCIEs available to support small and mid-size companies. In addition, Progent offers fast contact with a CCIE-certified consultant by phone so that you can get timely help for complex network problems that are impacting business productivity but are beyond the experience of your ordinary network maintenance personnel. Progent's CCIE consultants can connect to your network using secure remote support tools in order to perform fast and affordable analysis and remediation of urgent network problems.
