CCIE Certified Consulting FirmProgent's organization is geared towards making the best information technology talent accessible quickly and for a reasonable cost. Progent is unmatched in the IT consulting industry for the ability to offer easy, rapid, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. Cisco-certified CCIEs are sought-after networking engineers who qualify for this rare certification by passing intense examination by Cisco.

CCIE is the premier certification for networking engineers, and certifies an individual's technical knowledge at the master level. Candidates who succeed in the two mandatory tests, one written and one in a hands-on lab environment, receive a CCIE certificate from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE typically requires a minimum of three years of real-world seasoning designing, implementing, operating, and troubleshooting sophisticated Cisco networks. Earning a CCIE credential also requires a familiarity with Cisco hardware and network software, broad knowledge of LAN and WAN mechanisms, and an in-depth understanding of the protocols used on routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The prestigious CCIE certification has been recognized as the most technically advanced information technology credential by CertMag.

The Capabilities of a CCIE Engineer
Cisco's CCIE credential identifies experts with the knowledge and experience to succeed in the most difficult tasks in networking. The CCIE exams administered by Cisco are continually updated to evolve along with network technology, concentrating on contemporary technologies and practical problems. The CCIE credential is active for two years, and to renew it engineers need to take a Cisco recertification test. This guarantees that CCIEs do not get stale or overly focused so that they can offer the most advanced approaches to the widest range of problems associated with the most advanced connectivity technology.

CCIEs are a select class of consultants. Less than 3% of all Cisco certified individuals make it to the CCIE level, a small minority of IT workers in the industry. By 2010, around 5,000 CCIEs were located in the US. Progent offers the skills of around 12 CCIE-certified engineers on its phone-support and on-site IT consulting group, which is an extraordinarily high number for an independent computer support company.

CCIEs can handle even the most complex problems related to network planning, integration, administration, security, and troubleshooting. CCIEs work with the highest priority with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying problems with Cisco IOS Software network management utilities and developing alternate approaches or installing software updates to correct problems. CCIEs are an exceptional value because their deep expertise allows them to resolve complex problems rapidly. In many cases, less qualified engineers can spend hours or even days struggling with a task that a certified CCIE can solve in just a few minutes.

Most Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco technologies, but have multiple recognized technical certifications such as Microsoft MCSE, and a major network protection certification such as CISSP or CISA. This allows Progent to provide complete services that address a wide range of technologies without incurring needless expenses and delays managing multiple specialists.

Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or nationwide Internet providers, and so their help is not easily available to the general public. Progent is among the rare service organizations that makes CCIEs available to help small and mid-size companies. Also, Progent offers fast access to a CCIE online so that you can receive immediate support for complex network problems that are hurting worker efficiency but are beyond the scope of your ordinary IT maintenance providers.
