Progent's organization is geared towards making top IT talent available on short notice and affordably. Progent is a leader in the IT consulting arena for the ability to provide easy, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. CCIEs are elite network professionals who qualify for this prestigious certification by passing intense testing by Cisco.
CCIE is the top recognition for networking professionals, and certifies an individual's technical skills at the expert level. Candidates who succeed in the two mandatory exams, one written and one in a hands-on lab environment, receive a CCIE certificate from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE typically takes at least three years of practical seasoning architecting, deploying, managing, and repairing complex Cisco environments. Qualifying for a CCIE certificate also demands experience with Cisco devices and network software, broad knowledge of Local and Wide Area Network mechanisms, and a detailed familiarity with the 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 CCIE Consultant
CCIE credential identifies engineers with the knowledge and background to handle the most difficult assignments in networking. The CCIE tests administered by Cisco are continually updated to evolve along with the state of the art, focusing on contemporary technologies and real-world applications. The CCIE credential is valid for two years, and to renew it holders need to pass a Cisco recertification test. This ensures that CCIEs do not become stale or overly specialized in order that they can offer the latest approaches to a broad range of problems involving the most advanced connectivity technology.
CCIEs are a highly-select group of engineers. Below 3% of all Cisco certified individuals make it to the CCIE level, a small fraction of information technology workers in the industry. In 2010, about 5,000 CCIEs were registered in the United States. Progent offers the services of around a dozen CCIE-certified engineers on its phone-support and on-site IT support group, which is an extraordinarily large number for an independent network service company.
CCIEs can resolve even the most difficult issues related to network design, integration, management, protection, and troubleshooting. CCIEs work on a privileged basis with Cisco's in-house support staff in identifying problems with IOS Software network administration tools and coming up with workarounds or obtaining software updates to resolve problems. CCIEs are an exceptional value because their depth of expertise allows them to fix complex problems rapidly. In many instances, less seasoned engineers can burn up hours or even days struggling with a task that an experienced CCIE can resolve in just a few minutes.
Most Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco networking solutions, but have multiple recognized industry certifications including Microsoft MCSE, and an important security credential such as CISSP or CISM. This allows Progent to provide end-to-end solutions that incorporate a wide array of technologies without incurring extra expenses and delays orchestrating too many consultants.
Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their services are not easily accessible to small businesses. Progent is among the few service firms that makes CCIEs available to support small and mid-size companies. Also, Progent can provide fast contact with a CCIE online so that you can receive immediate help for complex network problems that are impacting worker productivity but are beyond the scope of your local IT maintenance providers.
