Progent's organization is designed to make the best information technology skills available quickly and economically. Progent is a leader in the network support arena for the ability to offer easy, quick, and budget-friendly access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). CCIEs are sought-after networking engineers who qualify for this rare certification by passing strenuous examination by Cisco.
CCIE is the top certification for networking consultants, and certifies an individual's networking knowledge at the expert level. Individuals who succeed in the two mandatory exams, one written and the other in a lab environment, are awarded a CCIE certificate from Cisco. CCIE certification typically requires a minimum of three years of real-world experience architecting, implementing, operating, and repairing large-scale Cisco environments. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also requires experience with Cisco devices and Cisco networking solutions, extensive knowledge of Local Area Network and Wide Area Network mechanisms, and a detailed understanding of the protocols associated with appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The prestigious CCIE credential has been recognized as the most technically advanced IT credential by CertMag.
The Capabilities of a CCIE Engineer
Cisco's CCIE certification recognizes experts with the knowledge and experience to handle the most difficult assignments in their field. The CCIE exams given by Cisco are continually revised to grow along with the industry, focusing on current environments and practical problems. The CCIE certification is active for two years, and to keep it current consultants need to pass a Cisco recertification exam. This ensures that CCIE engineers don't get stale or overly specialized so that they can provide the latest solutions to the widest array of challenges associated with the most advanced connectivity technology.
CCIEs are an elite group of engineers. Below 3% of all Cisco qualified individuals make it to the CCIE credential, a small fraction of IT workers worldwide. In 2010, approximately 5,000 CCIEs were located in the United States. Progent retains the services of around 12 CCIEs on its remote and on-site IT consulting team, which represents an extraordinarily large number for a publicly accessible computer service firm.
CCIEs can resolve the most difficult problems involving network design, deployment, administration, security, and troubleshooting. CCIEs operate on a privileged basis with Cisco's internal engineers in identifying anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network management utilities and developing alternate approaches or installing software patches to resolve problems. CCIEs are an exceptional value because their deep expertise allows them to resolve seemingly intractable problems quickly. In many instances, less qualified engineers can spend hours or even days wrestling with a problem that a certified CCIE can resolve in minutes.
Most Progent CCIEs are not only expert at Cisco networking solutions, but also have a variety of advanced industry certifications such as Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and an important security credential such as CISA or CISM. This permits Progent to provide comprehensive services that address a wide range of IT products without requiring needless expenses and delays managing multiple specialists.
Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs work for large corporations or national ISPs, and so their skills are not easily accessible to the general public. Progent is among the few consulting providers that makes CCIEs available to support small and medium sized companies. In addition, Progent offers fast contact with a CCIE online so that you can get timely help for urgent network problems that are hurting worker productivity but are outside the scope of your ordinary IT maintenance providers. Progent's CCIE consultants can connect to your network using the latest remote support technology in order to perform quick and affordable diagnosis and repair of urgent system problems.
