Progent's organization is designed to make the best information technology skills accessible on short notice and economically. Progent is a leader in the IT consulting arena for being able to provide easy, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco CCIEs. CCIEs are elite networking professionals who earn this prestigious certification only after strenuous testing by Cisco.
CCIE is the top recognition for networking engineers, and certifies an individual's networking knowledge at the expert level. Individuals who succeed in both of the mandatory exams, one written and one in a hands-on lab environment, receive a CCIE certificate from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE typically takes a minimum of three years of real-world seasoning architecting, implementing, managing, and repairing large-scale Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also requires experience with Cisco hardware and network solutions, broad knowledge of Local Area Network and Wide Area Network technologies, and an in-depth understanding of the protocols used on appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The prestigious CCIE certification has been recognized as the most advanced IT credential by CertMag.
The Capabilities of a CCIE Engineer
The CCIE credential recognizes engineers with the skills and experience to handle the most challenging assignments in their field. The CCIE exams administered by Cisco are continually updated to evolve with network technology, focusing on contemporary technologies and real-world problems. The CCIE certification is valid for two years, and to renew it holders need to take a Cisco renewal test. This guarantees that CCIEs do not get out of date or overly focused so that they can offer the most advanced solutions to the widest range of problems involving the most recent connectivity technology.
CCIEs are a highly-select class of engineers. Less than 3% of all Cisco accredited individuals qualify for the CCIE credential, a small minority of information technology workers worldwide. By 2010, approximately 5,000 CCIEs were estimated to be in the United States. Progent offers the skills of about a dozen CCIEs on its remote and on-site network consulting team, which is an exceptionally high number for an independent network service firm.
CCIEs can resolve even the most difficult issues related to network planning, integration, management, protection, and troubleshooting. CCIEs operate closely with Cisco's in-house engineers in isolating anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network management utilities and developing alternate approaches or obtaining software updates to resolve problems. CCIEs are an excellent value because their deep experience allows them to fix complex problems quickly. In common instances, less qualified consultants can burn up many hours or even days struggling with a problem that a certified CCIE can resolve in just a few minutes.
Most Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco networking solutions, but have multiple recognized technical credentials including Microsoft MCSE, and a major network security certification such as CISSP or CISM. This allows Progent to provide end-to-end services that address a broad array of technologies without incurring needless costs and delays managing too many consultants.
Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their help is not readily accessible to the general public. Progent is one of the rare service firms that makes CCIEs accessible to assist small and mid-size companies. Also, Progent can provide quick contact with a CCIE-certified consultant by phone so that you can get immediate support for urgent network issues that are hurting business productivity but are outside the experience of your local IT maintenance resources. Progent's CCIE engineers can tie into your network by means of state-of-the-art remote troubleshooting technology in order to provide quick and economical diagnosis and repair of urgent network trouble.
