Progent's organizational structure is optimized to make top information technology talent accessible on short notice and for a reasonable cost. Progent is unmatched in the network support arena for the ability to offer easy, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. CCIEs are elite network engineers who earn this prestigious certification by passing strenuous testing by Cisco.
CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the most advanced recognition for network professionals, and certifies an individual's technical knowledge at the master level. Candidates who pass the two mandatory exams, one written and the other in a lab setting, are awarded a CCIE certificate from Cisco. CCIE certification usually takes a minimum of three years of real-world seasoning designing, implementing, operating, and repairing complex Cisco environments. Earning a CCIE certificate also demands experience with Cisco hardware and network solutions, extensive understanding of LAN/WAN mechanisms, and a detailed familiarity with the protocols associated with appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The prestigious CCIE certification has been voted the most advanced information technology credential by CertMag.
The Capabilities of a CCIE Engineer
Cisco's CCIE credential recognizes experts with the knowledge and background to handle the most challenging assignments in their field. The CCIE tests given by Cisco are regularly updated to grow along with network technology, focusing on contemporary technologies and practical applications. The CCIE credential is active for two years, and to renew it engineers must pass a Cisco renewal test. This ensures that CCIE engineers don't get out of date or too focused in order that they can provide the latest approaches to the widest array of challenges involving the most recent network and security technology.
CCIEs are a highly-select group of consultants. Below 3% of all Cisco accredited professionals achieve the CCIE certification, a tiny fraction of IT professionals worldwide. By 2010, around 5,000 CCIEs were located in the US. Progent offers the services of around 12 CCIE-certified engineers on its phone-support and on-site IT support team, which is an exceptionally high number for an independent small business IT support company.
CCIEs can resolve the most challenging problems involving network planning, integration, administration, protection, and repair. CCIEs operate on a privileged basis with Cisco's in-house engineers in isolating anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network management tools and coming up with alternate approaches or installing software patches to resolve problems. CCIEs represent an excellent value since their deep experience enables them to solve complex problems rapidly. In common cases, less seasoned engineers can burn up many hours or days wrestling with a task that an experienced CCIE can solve in just a few minutes.
Most Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco technologies, but have multiple recognized technical credentials including Microsoft MCSE, and a major security certification such as CISSP or CISA. This allows Progent to provide comprehensive services that incorporate a broad range of IT products without requiring extra costs and delays managing 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 the general public. Progent is one of the rare service organizations that makes CCIEs available to help small and medium sized companies. In addition, Progent can provide quick access to a CCIE-certified consultant online so that you can receive immediate support for urgent network issues that are impacting worker productivity but are outside the experience of your local IT support personnel. Progent's CCIE support experts can connect to your environment via the latest remote support tools in order to provide quick and economical diagnosis and remediation of critical system problems.
