Progent's operational structure is optimized to make the best information technology skills accessible quickly and affordably. Progent is a leader in the IT consulting arena for the ability to offer convenient, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. CCIEs are elite networking professionals who earn this prestigious certification by passing strenuous examination by Cisco.
CCIE is the most advanced recognition for network engineers, and certifies a person's networking knowledge at the master level. Individuals who succeed in the two required tests, one written and the other 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 networks. Earning a CCIE credential also demands experience with Cisco hardware and Cisco networking software, extensive knowledge of Local Area Network and Wide Area Network mechanisms, and an in-depth understanding of the protocols used on appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The elite CCIE certification has been voted the most technically advanced information technology certification by CertMag.
The Capabilities of a CCIE Engineer
CCIE credential identifies experts with the knowledge and background to handle the most difficult assignments in their field. The CCIE exams administered by Cisco are regularly updated to evolve with network technology, concentrating on current environments and practical applications. The CCIE credential is active for two years, and to keep it current holders must take a Cisco recertification test. This ensures that CCIEs don't get out of date or overly focused so that they can provide the most advanced approaches to a broad array of challenges associated with the most advanced network and security technology.
CCIEs are a highly-select class of engineers. Below 3% of all Cisco qualified professionals make it to the CCIE certification, a small fraction of IT workers worldwide. By 2010, approximately 5,000 CCIEs were located in the United States. Progent retains the services of around 12 CCIEs on its phone-support and on-site IT support group, which represents an exceptionally high number for a publicly accessible computer support firm.
CCIEs can handle even the most difficult problems involving network design, integration, management, protection, and repair. CCIEs operate closely with Cisco's internal engineers in isolating anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network administration tools and coming up with alternate approaches or obtaining software patches to resolve problems. CCIEs represent an excellent value because their deep expertise allows them to solve seemingly intractable problems quickly. In many instances, less qualified consultants can spend hours or even days wrestling with a task that a certified CCIE can solve in just a few minutes.
The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco products, but have a variety of advanced technical credentials including Microsoft MCSE, and an important network protection certification such as CISSP or CISM. This allows Progent to provide comprehensive solutions that address a wide range of technologies without incurring needless expenses and interruptions orchestrating multiple consultants.
Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs work for large enterprises or nationwide Internet providers, and so their services are not easily available to the general public. Progent is one of the few support organizations that makes CCIEs accessible to assist small and mid-size companies. In addition, Progent offers fast contact with a CCIE online so that you can receive timely help for urgent network issues that are impacting worker efficiency but are outside the scope of your ordinary network maintenance personnel. Progent's CCIE support experts can tie into your network by means of sophisticated on-line troubleshooting technology in order to provide quick and economical diagnosis and repair of urgent system trouble.
