Progent's organizational structure is geared towards making top information technology skills available quickly and economically. Progent is a leader in the network support industry for being able to provide easy, rapid, and budget-friendly access to Cisco CCIEs. Cisco-certified CCIEs are sought-after networking professionals who earn this rare certification by passing strenuous testing by Cisco.
CCIE is the top certification for network engineers, and certifies an individual's networking knowledge at the expert level. Candidates who succeed in the two mandatory exams, one written and one in a hands-on lab setting, receive a CCIE credential from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE usually requires a minimum of three years of practical experience architecting, implementing, operating, and repairing complex Cisco environments. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also requires a familiarity with Cisco devices and network software, extensive knowledge of LAN and WAN mechanisms, and a detailed understanding of the protocols associated with appliances such as routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The prestigious CCIE certification has been recognized as the most technically advanced information technology certification by CertMag.
The Skills of a Cisco CCIE Engineer
The CCIE credential recognizes experts with the knowledge and experience to succeed in the most challenging tasks in their field. The CCIE exams administered by Cisco are continually updated to grow along with the industry, concentrating on contemporary technologies and practical applications. The CCIE certification is active for two years, and to renew it consultants must take a Cisco renewal exam. This guarantees that CCIE engineers don't become stale or too specialized in order that they can offer the latest solutions to the widest array of challenges associated with the most current networking products and technology.
CCIEs are a highly-select group of consultants. Below 3% of all Cisco qualified professionals qualify for the CCIE level, a tiny minority of information technology professionals in the industry. In 2010, approximately 5,000 CCIEs were registered in the US. Progent offers the skills of around a dozen CCIE-certified engineers on its remote and on-site network support group, which is an extraordinarily high number for a publicly accessible small business IT support company.
CCIEs can resolve the most complex problems involving network planning, deployment, administration, protection, and troubleshooting. CCIEs operate with the highest priority with Cisco's internal support staff in identifying anomalies with IOS Software network administration utilities and coming up with workarounds or obtaining software updates to resolve problems. CCIEs represent an exceptional value because their deep experience enables them to solve seemingly intractable problems rapidly. In many cases, less qualified engineers can spend many hours or days wrestling with a problem that a certified CCIE can solve in just a few minutes.
The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco products, but also have multiple recognized technical credentials such as Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and a major network security certification such as CISSP or CISA. This allows Progent to provide complete services that address a broad array of technologies without incurring extra costs and interruptions managing too many specialists.
Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or nationwide Internet providers, and so their help is not readily accessible to the general public.

In addition, Progent can provide fast access to a CCIE-certified consultant online so that you can get timely help for urgent network issues that are impacting business productivity but are beyond the scope of your ordinary IT maintenance personnel.
