CCIE SupportProgent's operational structure is optimized to make the best information technology skills accessible quickly and affordably. Progent is unmatched in the IT consulting industry for being able to provide convenient, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. Cisco-certified CCIEs are sought-after networking professionals who earn this rare certification only after intense examination by Cisco.

CCIE is the most advanced certification for network consultants, and indicates a person's networking knowledge at the master level. Individuals who pass the two required exams, one written and the other in a hands-on lab environment, receive a CCIE credential from Cisco. CCIE certification typically requires a minimum of three years of real-world seasoning designing, implementing, operating, and troubleshooting complex Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also requires experience with Cisco hardware and Cisco networking solutions, broad knowledge of LAN/WAN technologies, and a detailed familiarity with the network protocols associated with appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The elite CCIE certification has been recognized as the most advanced IT credential by CertMag.

The Skills of a Cisco CCIE Engineer
Cisco's CCIE credential recognizes experts with the knowledge and background to handle the most challenging assignments in networking. The CCIE exams given by Cisco are continually revised to grow along with the industry, concentrating on contemporary technologies and practical applications. The CCIE credential is valid for two years, and to keep it current engineers must take a Cisco renewal exam. This guarantees that CCIEs don't get stale or overly focused so that they can provide the most advanced solutions to the widest range of challenges associated with the most advanced connectivity technology.

CCIEs are an elite class of consultants. Less than 3% of all Cisco certified individuals qualify for the CCIE certification, a tiny minority of IT professionals in the industry. In 2010, about 5,000 CCIEs were estimated to be in the United States. Progent offers the services of around a dozen CCIEs on its phone-support and on-site IT consulting team, which is an exceptionally large number for an independent computer service company.

CCIEs can handle the most complex problems related to network planning, deployment, administration, protection, and repair. CCIEs operate with the highest priority with Cisco's internal engineers in isolating anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network administration utilities and coming up with workarounds or installing software updates to resolve problems. CCIEs are an exceptional value since their depth of expertise allows them to resolve complex problems rapidly. In common instances, less qualified engineers can burn up hours or days struggling with a problem that an experienced CCIE can solve in a few minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco technologies, but also have a variety of advanced technical certifications such as Microsoft MCSE, and a major network security certification such as CISSP or CISA. This allows Progent to provide complete services that incorporate a wide range of technologies without requiring needless costs and interruptions orchestrating too many consultants.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs work for large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their help is not easily available to the general public. Progent is among the rare support firms that makes CCIEs accessible to help small and mid-size businesses. In addition, Progent can provide quick access to a CCIE-certified consultant online so that you can get timely support for complex network problems that are impacting worker productivity but are beyond the scope of your local IT maintenance personnel.
