Progent's organization is designed to make the best network support skills accessible on short notice and for a reasonable cost. Progent is a leader in the IT consulting industry for the ability to offer convenient, quick, and budget-friendly access to Cisco CCIEs. Cisco-certified CCIEs are elite networking engineers who qualify for this prestigious certification by passing strenuous testing by Cisco.
CCIE is the most advanced recognition for networking engineers, and certifies a person's networking skills at the expert level. Candidates who pass both of the required exams, one written and one in a hands-on lab setting, are awarded a CCIE certificate from Cisco. CCIE certification usually takes a minimum of three years of practical seasoning architecting, deploying, managing, and troubleshooting sophisticated Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE certificate also demands a familiarity with Cisco hardware and network software, extensive knowledge of LAN and WAN technologies, and a detailed understanding of the network protocols used on routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The elite CCIE certification has been recognized as the most technically advanced information technology credential by CertMag.
The Skills of a CCIE Engineer
Cisco's CCIE credential identifies engineers with the skills and experience to handle the most challenging assignments in their field. The CCIE tests administered by Cisco are continually revised to evolve with network technology, concentrating on contemporary environments and practical problems. The CCIE certification is active for two years, and to renew it engineers have to pass a Cisco renewal exam. This ensures that CCIE engineers don't get stale or too focused so that they can provide the most advanced approaches to the widest array of problems involving the most recent network and security technology.
CCIEs are a highly-select class of consultants. Less than 3% of all Cisco qualified professionals make it to the CCIE level, a tiny fraction of IT workers worldwide. By 2010, around 5,000 CCIEs were estimated to be in the US. Progent offers the skills of about a dozen CCIEs on its phone-support and on-site IT support group, which represents an exceptionally high number for an independent network support organization.
CCIEs can resolve the most challenging issues associated with network planning, integration, management, security, and repair. CCIEs work on a privileged basis with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying anomalies with IOS Software network management tools and coming up with workarounds or installing software updates to resolve problems. CCIEs represent an exceptional value because their depth of experience enables them to solve seemingly intractable problems rapidly. In common instances, less qualified engineers can burn up many hours or days wrestling with a task that a certified CCIE can resolve in a few minutes.
Most Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco products, but also have multiple advanced industry credentials including Microsoft MCSE, and an important security credential such as CISA or CISM. This allows Progent to offer end-to-end services that address a broad range of IT products without requiring needless costs and delays managing multiple consultants.
Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs work for large enterprises or nationwide ISPs, and so their services are not readily accessible to small businesses. Progent is one of the rare support organizations that makes CCIEs accessible to support small and medium sized companies. Also, Progent offers fast access to a CCIE-certified consultant online so that you can receive timely help for complex network issues that are hurting worker productivity but are outside the scope of your ordinary IT maintenance providers. Progent's CCIE consultants can connect to your environment via sophisticated on-line troubleshooting technology in order to provide fast and affordable analysis and repair of critical system trouble.
