Progent's organization is optimized to make top information technology talent available quickly and for a reasonable cost. Progent is unmatched in the IT consulting arena for the ability to offer easy, rapid, and budget-friendly access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). Cisco-certified CCIEs are sought-after network engineers who qualify for this rare certification by passing strenuous examination by Cisco.
CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the premier recognition for networking professionals, and indicates a person's networking knowledge at the expert level. Candidates who succeed in both of the required tests, one written and one in a lab environment, receive a CCIE credential from Cisco. CCIE certification typically requires at least three years of real-world seasoning architecting, implementing, managing, and troubleshooting complex Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also demands experience with Cisco hardware and Cisco networking solutions, broad knowledge of Local Area Network and Wide Area Network mechanisms, and an in-depth familiarity with the protocols associated with appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The elite CCIE certification has been recognized as the most technically advanced IT certification by CertMag.
The Skills of a Cisco CCIE Consultant
CCIE credential identifies experts with the skills and background to handle the most difficult assignments in their field. The CCIE tests given by Cisco are continually revised to grow with network technology, concentrating on current technologies and real-world applications. The CCIE credential is valid for two years, and to renew it consultants need to take a Cisco renewal test. This ensures that CCIEs don't become stale or too specialized in order that they can offer the most advanced approaches to the widest array of problems involving the most current network and security technology.
CCIEs are an elite group of engineers. Less than 3% of all Cisco qualified individuals achieve the CCIE level, a tiny fraction of information technology workers worldwide. In 2010, around 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were registered in the United States. Progent retains the skills of about a dozen CCIEs on its remote and on-site IT support group, which is an extraordinarily high number for a publicly accessible network support company.
CCIEs can resolve even the most difficult problems related to network planning, integration, administration, security, and repair. CCIEs work on a privileged basis with Cisco's internal support staff in isolating anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network administration utilities and coming up with alternate approaches or obtaining software patches to fix problems. CCIEs represent an exceptional value since their depth of expertise allows them to fix seemingly intractable problems quickly. In common instances, less seasoned engineers can burn up many hours or days wrestling with a problem that a certified CCIE can resolve in just a few minutes.
The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco products, but have multiple recognized technical certifications such as Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and a major network security credential such as CISSP or CISA. This allows Progent to offer comprehensive solutions that address a wide array of IT products without requiring extra costs and delays orchestrating too many specialists.
Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or national ISPs, and so their services are not readily available to the general public. Progent is among the few service firms that makes CCIEs available to help small and medium sized companies. In addition, Progent offers fast contact with a CCIE-certified consultant by phone so that you can receive timely support for urgent network problems that are impacting worker productivity but are beyond the scope of your ordinary IT maintenance providers.
