Progent's operational structure is optimized to make top IT skills available on short notice and affordably. Progent is unmatched in the network support industry for being able to offer easy, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. CCIEs are sought-after network engineers who earn this prestigious certification by passing intense examination by Cisco.
CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the most advanced recognition for networking consultants, and indicates an individual's technical knowledge at the master level. Individuals who pass both of the mandatory exams, one written and the other in a lab setting, receive a CCIE credential from Cisco. CCIE certification usually takes a minimum of three years of real-world seasoning architecting, implementing, managing, and repairing large-scale Cisco environments. Qualifying for a CCIE certificate also requires experience with Cisco devices and network software, broad understanding of Local Area Network and Wide Area Network mechanisms, and a detailed understanding of the network protocols associated with routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The prestigious CCIE certification has been recognized as the most advanced IT certification by CertMag.
The Capabilities of a Cisco CCIE Consultant
The CCIE credential identifies experts with the skills and experience to succeed in the most difficult tasks in their field. The CCIE exams administered by Cisco are continually revised to evolve along with the industry, concentrating on current technologies and real-world problems. The CCIE credential is valid for two years, and to renew it engineers have to pass a Cisco renewal test. This guarantees that CCIE engineers do not get out of date or too focused so that they can offer the latest approaches to a broad array of problems associated with the most recent network and security technology.
CCIEs are a select class of engineers. Less than 3% of all Cisco accredited professionals make it to the CCIE level, a tiny minority of IT workers worldwide. In 2010, around 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were located in the US. Progent offers the skills of around a dozen CCIE-certified engineers on its phone-support and on-site IT consulting team, which is an extraordinarily large number for an independent network support firm.
CCIEs can resolve even the most complex issues involving network design, deployment, administration, security, and troubleshooting. CCIEs operate on a privileged basis with Cisco's in-house support staff in isolating anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network administration utilities and developing workarounds or obtaining software updates to resolve problems. CCIEs represent an excellent value because their depth of experience enables them to resolve complex problems quickly. In many cases, less seasoned engineers can spend hours or even days wrestling with a task that a certified CCIE can solve in just a few minutes.
Most Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco technologies, but have multiple advanced technical credentials including Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and an important security credential such as CISSP or CISM. This allows Progent to offer complete services that incorporate a wide array of IT products without incurring extra costs and interruptions orchestrating multiple consultants.
Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their help is not readily available to small businesses. Progent is one of the few support providers that makes CCIEs accessible to assist small and medium sized companies. In addition, Progent offers fast contact with a CCIE online so that you can get timely support for urgent network problems that are impacting worker productivity but are outside the experience of your ordinary network maintenance personnel. Progent's CCIE support experts can connect to your environment by means of sophisticated remote support tools in order to provide quick and economical analysis and repair of critical system problems.
