Progent's organization is designed to make the best network support talent accessible on short notice and for a reasonable cost. Progent is unmatched in the IT consulting industry for the ability to provide easy, quick, and budget-friendly access to Cisco CCIEs. Cisco-certified CCIEs are sought-after network professionals who qualify for this rare certification only after intense testing by Cisco.
CCIE is the premier certification for network professionals, and certifies an individual's technical skills at the master level. Individuals who pass the two mandatory exams, one written and one in a hands-on lab environment, receive a CCIE credential from Cisco. CCIE certification usually requires at least three years of real-world seasoning architecting, implementing, managing, and repairing complex Cisco environments. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also demands experience with Cisco devices and network solutions, broad understanding of Local Area Network and Wide Area Network technologies, and a detailed familiarity with the network protocols associated with routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The prestigious CCIE certification has been voted the most technically advanced information technology credential by CertMag.
The Skills of a CCIE Engineer
CCIE credential identifies experts with the knowledge and experience to succeed in the most difficult tasks in networking. The CCIE tests given by Cisco are continually updated to evolve along with network technology, focusing on contemporary environments and practical problems. The CCIE certification is valid for two years, and to keep it current engineers need to pass a Cisco recertification test. This guarantees that CCIEs don't get stale or overly specialized so that they can offer the latest solutions to a broad array of problems involving the most current connectivity products and technology.
CCIEs are a select group of engineers. Below 3% of all Cisco accredited professionals achieve the CCIE certification, a small fraction of information technology workers worldwide. By 2010, about 5,000 CCIEs were estimated to be in the United States. Progent offers the skills of around 12 CCIE-certified engineers on its phone-support and on-site IT consulting group, which represents an exceptionally high number for a publicly accessible network support organization.
CCIEs can handle even the most difficult problems related to network design, integration, administration, security, and repair. CCIEs operate with the highest priority with Cisco's internal engineers in identifying anomalies with IOS Software network administration tools and coming up with alternate approaches or obtaining software updates to correct problems. CCIEs are an exceptional value because their deep expertise allows them to fix complex problems quickly. In many cases, less qualified consultants can spend many hours or even days struggling with a problem that an experienced CCIE can solve in minutes.
The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco products, but also have a variety of advanced industry certifications including Microsoft MCSE, and a major security certification such as CISSP or CISM. This permits Progent to offer end-to-end services that address a wide array of IT products without incurring extra expenses and interruptions managing too many specialists.
Progent's CCIE Support Services

Progent is among the few service providers that makes CCIEs accessible to assist small and mid-size companies. In addition, Progent offers quick access to a CCIE-certified consultant online so that you can receive timely help for complex network problems that are hurting business efficiency but are beyond the experience of your local IT maintenance resources.
