Progent's organization is geared towards making the best information technology talent available quickly and for a reasonable cost. Progent is unmatched in the network support industry for being able to provide convenient, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. CCIEs are elite networking professionals who earn this prestigious certification only after strenuous examination by Cisco.
CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) is the top certification for networking engineers, and certifies a person's networking skills at the expert level. Candidates who pass the two required tests, one written and one in a lab environment, are awarded a CCIE certificate from Cisco. CCIE certification typically requires at least three years of practical experience architecting, deploying, operating, and repairing sophisticated Cisco environments. Earning a CCIE certificate also demands experience with Cisco hardware and Cisco networking software, broad understanding of LAN and WAN technologies, and a detailed understanding of the network protocols associated with 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 Engineer
Cisco's CCIE certification recognizes engineers with the knowledge and experience to succeed in the most difficult tasks in networking. The CCIE tests administered by Cisco are regularly revised to evolve with network technology, concentrating on contemporary environments and real-world problems. The CCIE credential is valid for two years, and to keep it current engineers must pass a Cisco recertification test. This guarantees that CCIE engineers do not get stale or too focused in order that they can provide the most advanced solutions to a broad array of challenges associated with the most current network and security technology.
CCIEs are a highly-select group of consultants. Less than 3% of all Cisco certified professionals achieve the CCIE level, a small minority of IT workers in the industry. In 2010, around 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were estimated to be in the United States. Progent retains the services of around 12 CCIEs on its remote and on-site IT consulting group, which represents an exceptionally large number for an independent small business IT service company.
CCIEs can resolve even the most challenging problems involving network planning, deployment, administration, protection, and troubleshooting. CCIEs work with the highest priority with Cisco's internal support staff in isolating problems with 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 deep expertise allows them to resolve seemingly intractable problems rapidly. In common instances, less qualified engineers can burn up many hours or even days struggling with a problem that a certified CCIE can solve in a few minutes.
The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco products, but have a variety of recognized industry credentials such as Microsoft MCSE, and an important network security credential such as CISSP or CISM. This allows Progent to offer complete services that incorporate a wide array of IT products without incurring needless expenses and interruptions managing too many consultants.
Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large corporations or nationwide ISPs, and so their help is not easily available to the general public. Progent is among the few consulting providers that makes CCIEs accessible to help small and mid-size businesses. Also, Progent can provide fast contact with a CCIE online so that you can get timely support for urgent network issues that are hurting worker efficiency but are outside the scope of your local IT support personnel. Progent's CCIE engineers can tie into your network using secure remote support technology in order to provide fast and economical diagnosis and remediation of urgent system problems.
