Progent's organizational structure is optimized to make top network support skills accessible quickly and affordably. Progent is a leader in the network support arena for being able to provide easy, quick, and budget-friendly access to Cisco CCIEs. Cisco-certified CCIEs are sought-after network professionals who earn this prestigious certification only after intense examination by Cisco.
CCIE is the top certification for network engineers, and indicates a person's technical knowledge at the expert level. Candidates who pass both of the required exams, one written and the other in a lab setting, receive a CCIE certificate from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE typically takes at least three years of practical experience designing, deploying, operating, and troubleshooting sophisticated Cisco environments. Earning a CCIE credential also requires a familiarity with Cisco devices and network solutions, extensive knowledge of Local and Wide Area Network technologies, and a detailed understanding of the protocols associated with appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The elite CCIE certification has been voted the most advanced IT certification by CertMag.
The Capabilities of a Cisco CCIE Consultant
The CCIE credential recognizes experts with the knowledge and background to handle the most challenging tasks in their field. The CCIE exams administered by Cisco are continually revised to evolve with the state of the art, focusing on current environments and real-world applications. The CCIE credential is valid for two years, and to renew it holders need to take a Cisco renewal exam. This guarantees that CCIE engineers do not become out of date or too specialized so that they can provide the latest approaches to the widest range of problems involving the most current connectivity technology.
CCIEs are a highly-select group of consultants. Less than 3% of all Cisco certified individuals qualify for the CCIE level, a small minority of information technology workers in the industry. By 2010, about 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were registered in the United States. Progent offers the services of around 12 CCIE-certified engineers on its remote and on-site IT support group, which is an exceptionally large number for a publicly accessible small business IT support firm.
CCIEs can handle even the most challenging problems associated with network planning, deployment, administration, security, and troubleshooting. CCIEs operate on a privileged basis with Cisco's in-house support staff in isolating problems with Cisco IOS Software network management utilities and coming up with alternate approaches or obtaining software updates to correct problems. CCIEs represent an exceptional value since their deep experience enables them to fix seemingly intractable problems rapidly. In common instances, less seasoned consultants can spend many hours or even days struggling with a task that an experienced CCIE can solve in just a few minutes.
The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco networking solutions, but have a variety of recognized industry certifications including Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and a major network security certification such as CISA or CISM. This permits Progent to offer end-to-end services that address a broad range of technologies without incurring extra costs and delays orchestrating too many consultants.
Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their skills are not easily accessible to small businesses. Progent is one of the few service organizations that makes CCIEs available to help small and mid-size companies. Also, Progent can provide quick contact with a CCIE by phone so that you can get immediate help for urgent network problems that are hurting business efficiency but are beyond the experience of your local IT support resources. Progent's CCIE support experts can connect to your environment using sophisticated remote troubleshooting tools in order to perform fast and affordable analysis and repair of urgent network problems.
