Progent's organizational structure is optimized to make top IT skills available on short notice and economically. Progent is unmatched in the IT consulting arena for the ability to provide convenient, quick, and budget-friendly access to Cisco CCIEs. CCIEs are sought-after network engineers who earn this rare certification by passing strenuous testing by Cisco.
CCIE is the premier certification for networking professionals, and indicates a person's technical knowledge at the expert level. Candidates who pass both of the required exams, one written and one in a hands-on lab setting, receive a CCIE credential from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE usually requires at least three years of real-world seasoning designing, implementing, operating, and troubleshooting large-scale Cisco networks. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also requires a familiarity with Cisco devices and Cisco networking solutions, extensive knowledge of Local and Wide Area Network mechanisms, and an in-depth understanding of the protocols used on routers, switches, bridges, and firewalls. The elite CCIE certification has been recognized as the most advanced information technology credential by CertMag.
The Capabilities of a Cisco CCIE Engineer
The CCIE certification recognizes engineers with the knowledge and background to handle the most difficult tasks in their field. The CCIE exams given by Cisco are regularly updated to grow with the state of the art, concentrating on contemporary technologies and real-world applications. The CCIE credential is valid for two years, and to keep it current holders have to pass a Cisco renewal exam. This ensures that CCIE engineers don't become stale or overly focused so that they can offer the most advanced approaches to a broad range of problems associated with the most advanced connectivity technology.
CCIEs are a highly-select group of engineers. Less than 3% of all Cisco qualified professionals qualify for the CCIE credential, a small fraction of information technology professionals worldwide. By 2010, approximately 5,000 Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts were estimated to be in the US. Progent offers the skills of around a dozen CCIE-certified engineers on its remote and on-site network consulting group, which is an exceptionally large number for a publicly accessible computer service organization.
CCIEs can handle even the most complex problems involving network design, integration, administration, protection, and repair. CCIEs operate with the highest priority with Cisco's in-house engineers in isolating problems with Cisco IOS Software network management utilities and developing alternate approaches or installing software patches to fix problems. CCIEs represent an excellent value because their deep expertise allows them to resolve seemingly intractable problems rapidly. In common instances, less qualified engineers can spend many hours or days wrestling with a problem that a certified CCIE can solve in just minutes.
The majority of Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco networking solutions, but also have multiple recognized industry certifications including Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and a major network protection certification such as CISSP or CISA. This allows Progent to provide complete solutions that address a wide range of IT products without incurring needless expenses and delays orchestrating multiple specialists.
Progent's CCIE Support Services
Most CCIEs work for large enterprises or nationwide Internet providers, and so their help is not easily available to small businesses. Progent is one of the rare consulting organizations that makes CCIEs accessible to help small and mid-size companies. In addition, Progent can provide fast access to a CCIE-certified consultant by phone so that you can get immediate help for urgent network issues that are hurting business productivity but are beyond the scope of your local network support providers.
