Progent's organization is designed to make the best network support talent available quickly and for a reasonable cost. Progent is a leader in the network support arena for being able to offer convenient, quick, and budget-friendly access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). Cisco-certified CCIEs are sought-after networking professionals who qualify for this rare certification by passing strenuous examination by Cisco.
CCIE is the premier recognition for network professionals, and certifies a person's technical skills at the master level. Individuals who pass the two required tests, one written and the other in a hands-on lab setting, receive a CCIE credential from Cisco. CCIE certification usually takes at least three years of practical experience designing, deploying, managing, and troubleshooting large-scale Cisco networks. Earning a CCIE credential also demands a familiarity with Cisco devices and network software, extensive understanding of Local and Wide Area Network mechanisms, and a detailed understanding of the protocols used on routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The prestigious CCIE certification has been recognized as the most advanced information technology certification by CertMag.
The Capabilities of a CCIE Consultant
Cisco's CCIE certification identifies engineers with the skills and background to handle the most difficult tasks in networking. The CCIE exams given by Cisco are regularly updated to evolve with network technology, concentrating on contemporary environments and practical problems. The CCIE credential is valid for two years, and to keep it current engineers need to take a Cisco renewal exam. This ensures that CCIE engineers do not get stale or too focused so that they can offer the latest approaches to the widest range of challenges involving the most current connectivity products and technology.
CCIEs are a highly-select group of consultants. Less than 3% of all Cisco certified professionals qualify for the CCIE level, a tiny minority of IT workers worldwide. In 2010, approximately 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were registered in the United States. Progent offers the services of about 12 CCIEs on its remote and on-site IT consulting team, which is an exceptionally high number for a publicly accessible computer service company.
CCIEs can handle even the most challenging issues encountered in network design, deployment, management, security, and repair. CCIEs operate with the highest priority with Cisco's internal engineers in isolating anomalies with IOS Software network administration tools and developing alternate approaches or obtaining software updates to fix problems. CCIEs are an excellent value because their depth of expertise allows them to solve seemingly intractable problems rapidly. In common instances, less qualified consultants can spend many hours or days struggling with a task that a certified CCIE can resolve in a few minutes.
The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco technologies, but also have a variety of recognized industry certifications such as Microsoft MCSE, and a major network security credential such as CISSP or CISA. This permits Progent to provide comprehensive solutions that address a broad range of technologies without incurring extra costs and interruptions managing too many specialists.
Progent's CCIE Support Services

In addition, Progent offers fast access to a CCIE-certified consultant online so that you can receive immediate help for complex network problems that are impacting worker productivity but are outside the scope of your ordinary IT maintenance resources.
