Progent's operational structure is optimized to make the best information technology talent accessible quickly and affordably. Progent is a leader in the network support industry for being able to provide easy, quick, and budget-friendly access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). Cisco-certified CCIEs are elite networking professionals who qualify for this prestigious certification only after intense testing by Cisco.
CCIE is the most advanced certification for network professionals, and certifies a person's technical skills at the master level. Candidates who pass the two mandatory exams, one written and one in a hands-on lab setting, are awarded a CCIE credential from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE usually takes a minimum of three years of real-world experience designing, deploying, operating, and troubleshooting large-scale Cisco environments. Qualifying for a CCIE certificate also demands a familiarity with Cisco hardware and Cisco networking solutions, extensive understanding of LAN and WAN mechanisms, and a detailed understanding of the network protocols associated with routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The prestigious CCIE credential has been recognized as the most advanced IT certification by CertMag.
The Capabilities of a CCIE Engineer
Cisco's CCIE certification identifies consultants with the knowledge and background to handle the most challenging tasks in their field. The CCIE exams given by Cisco are continually revised to evolve along with the state of the art, concentrating on current environments and practical problems. The CCIE certification is active for two years, and to renew it engineers need to take a Cisco renewal test. This ensures that CCIEs do not get out of date or overly specialized so that they can offer the latest approaches to the widest array of challenges involving the most recent network and security technology.
CCIEs are an elite class of engineers. Below 3% of all Cisco qualified individuals make it to the CCIE credential, a small fraction of information technology workers worldwide. By 2010, around 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were located in the US. Progent offers the skills of around a dozen CCIEs on its remote and on-site network support team, which represents an exceptionally large number for an independent small business IT service company.
CCIEs can resolve even the most challenging problems related to network planning, integration, administration, protection, and troubleshooting. CCIEs work with the highest priority with Cisco's in-house engineers in isolating problems with IOS Software network administration tools and developing alternate approaches or installing software patches to resolve problems. CCIEs are an exceptional value because their depth of experience allows them to resolve complex problems quickly. In many instances, less qualified engineers can spend hours or days struggling with a task that an experienced CCIE can resolve in just minutes.
Most Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco technologies, but have multiple recognized technical credentials such as Microsoft MCSE, and an important network protection certification such as CISSP or CISA. This allows Progent to provide end-to-end solutions that incorporate a wide array of technologies without incurring needless expenses and delays orchestrating multiple consultants.
Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their skills are not easily available to small businesses. Progent is among the few consulting firms that makes CCIEs accessible to assist small and medium sized businesses. Also, Progent can provide fast access to a CCIE-certified consultant by phone so that you can receive immediate support for urgent network problems that are impacting worker productivity but are beyond the experience of your ordinary IT support resources. Progent's CCIE engineers can tie into your network via secure remote support tools in order to perform quick and affordable analysis and remediation of urgent system trouble.
