CCIE Certified Consulting and Support ServicesProgent's operational structure is geared towards making top IT skills available on short notice and for a reasonable cost. Progent is a leader in the IT consulting arena for being able to provide convenient, rapid, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. Cisco-certified CCIEs are sought-after networking professionals who qualify for this rare certification only after strenuous examination by Cisco.

CCIE is the premier certification for networking professionals, and indicates a person's networking knowledge at the master level. Individuals who pass the two required exams, one written and one in a hands-on lab environment, receive a CCIE credential from Cisco. CCIE certification typically takes at least three years of real-world experience designing, implementing, managing, and troubleshooting sophisticated Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE certificate also demands a familiarity with Cisco hardware and Cisco networking software, broad knowledge of LAN and WAN technologies, and a detailed understanding of the network protocols used on appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The elite CCIE certification has been voted the most advanced information technology certification by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a CCIE Consultant
CCIE credential identifies experts with the knowledge and background to handle the most challenging tasks in their field. The CCIE exams administered by Cisco are continually updated to grow with the state of the art, concentrating on current environments and practical applications. The CCIE certification is valid for two years, and to renew it holders need to take a Cisco renewal exam. This guarantees that CCIEs don't get stale or overly specialized in order that they can offer the most advanced approaches to a broad range of challenges associated with the most advanced networking products and technology.

CCIEs are a highly-select class of consultants. Below 3% of all Cisco certified professionals qualify for the CCIE level, a tiny fraction of information technology professionals worldwide. By 2010, around 5,000 CCIEs were located in the United States. Progent offers the services of about 12 CCIEs on its phone-support and on-site network consulting group, which is an extraordinarily large number for an independent computer service firm.

CCIEs can resolve the most difficult problems related to network planning, integration, administration, protection, and repair. CCIEs work with the highest priority with Cisco's internal engineers in isolating problems with IOS Software network administration utilities and developing workarounds or installing software patches to fix problems. CCIEs represent an excellent value since their deep experience enables them to fix seemingly intractable problems rapidly. In common cases, less seasoned engineers can burn up many hours or days struggling with a task that a certified CCIE can solve in minutes.

The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco technologies, but also have multiple advanced technical credentials such as Microsoft MCSE, and an important network protection credential such as CISA or CISM. This permits Progent to offer comprehensive services that address a wide range of technologies without requiring extra costs and delays orchestrating too many specialists.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs work for large enterprises or nationwide ISPs, and so their services are not readily accessible to the general public. Progent is among the rare support providers that makes CCIEs accessible to help small and mid-size companies. Also, Progent offers quick access to a CCIE by phone so that you can receive immediate support for urgent network issues that are hurting worker efficiency but are outside the experience of your ordinary network maintenance personnel. Progent's CCIE support experts can connect to your network by means of state-of-the-art remote troubleshooting technology in order to provide fast and affordable analysis and remediation of critical network problems.
