Progent's operational structure is designed to make the best IT skills accessible quickly and for a reasonable cost. Progent is a leader in the IT consulting industry for being able to offer convenient, rapid, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. Cisco-certified CCIEs are elite networking engineers who qualify for this prestigious certification only after intense examination by Cisco.
CCIE is the top recognition for network engineers, and indicates a person's technical knowledge at the master level. Candidates who succeed in the two mandatory tests, one written and one in a lab environment, are awarded a CCIE credential from Cisco. CCIE certification typically takes a minimum of three years of real-world seasoning architecting, implementing, operating, and troubleshooting sophisticated Cisco environments. Earning a CCIE credential also demands a familiarity with Cisco hardware and network solutions, broad understanding of LAN and WAN mechanisms, and a detailed understanding of 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 Cisco CCIE Consultant
The CCIE credential recognizes experts with the skills and background to handle the most challenging tasks in networking. The CCIE tests given by Cisco are continually updated to evolve with network technology, concentrating on contemporary environments and real-world applications. The CCIE certification is valid for two years, and to renew it engineers must pass a Cisco renewal test. This guarantees that CCIE engineers don't get stale or overly focused in order that they can provide the latest solutions to the widest array of problems associated with the most current network and security technology.
CCIEs are a highly-select class of engineers. Less than 3% of all Cisco accredited professionals make it to the CCIE credential, a tiny minority of information technology professionals worldwide. By 2010, approximately 5,000 CCIEs were registered in the United States. Progent retains the skills of about 12 CCIEs on its remote and on-site network consulting group, which is an exceptionally high number for an independent small business IT service company.
CCIEs can resolve even the most difficult issues involving network planning, integration, management, protection, and repair. CCIEs work with the highest priority with Cisco's internal support staff in identifying problems with Cisco IOS Software network management tools and developing workarounds or installing software updates to fix problems. CCIEs represent an exceptional value because their deep expertise enables them to solve seemingly intractable problems quickly. In common cases, less seasoned consultants can spend hours or days struggling with a task that an experienced CCIE can resolve in just minutes.
The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco products, but also have multiple advanced industry certifications such as Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and an important security credential such as CISA or CISM. This allows Progent to provide comprehensive services that incorporate a broad range of technologies without requiring needless expenses and interruptions managing too many specialists.
Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or nationwide ISPs, and so their help is not readily available to small businesses. Progent is one of the rare support organizations that makes CCIEs accessible to assist small and medium sized companies. Also, Progent can provide quick access to a CCIE online so that you can get immediate help for urgent network problems that are hurting worker productivity but are beyond the experience of your ordinary network maintenance resources.
