Progent's operational structure is designed to make the best IT skills available on short notice and affordably. Progent is unmatched in the network support industry for the ability to provide easy, quick, and cost-effective access to Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs). Cisco-certified CCIEs are elite network engineers who earn this rare certification only after intense testing by Cisco.
CCIE is the most advanced certification for networking engineers, and indicates a person's networking skills at the master level. Candidates who pass the two required exams, one written and one in a lab setting, receive a CCIE certificate from Cisco. Becoming a CCIE typically takes at least three years of real-world seasoning designing, implementing, operating, and repairing sophisticated Cisco environments. Qualifying for a CCIE credential also demands experience with Cisco hardware and Cisco networking solutions, extensive knowledge of LAN and WAN technologies, and an in-depth familiarity with the network protocols used on routers, switches, bridges, and security devices. The elite CCIE credential has been voted the most technically advanced information technology certification by CertMag.
The Skills of a Cisco CCIE Engineer
Cisco's CCIE credential identifies engineers with the knowledge and background to handle the most challenging assignments in their field. The CCIE tests given by Cisco are continually updated to grow with network technology, focusing on current environments and practical applications. The CCIE certification is valid for two years, and to renew it engineers have to pass a Cisco renewal exam. This guarantees that CCIE engineers don't get out of date or too focused in order that they can provide the latest solutions to a broad array of problems involving the most advanced connectivity products and technology.
CCIEs are a highly-select group of engineers. Less than 3% of all Cisco qualified individuals qualify for the CCIE credential, a tiny minority of information technology workers worldwide. By 2010, approximately 5,000 CCIEs were located in the United States. Progent offers the services of about 12 CCIEs on its phone-support and on-site IT support team, which represents an exceptionally large number for a publicly accessible network support firm.
CCIEs can resolve even the most difficult issues associated with network planning, integration, administration, security, and troubleshooting. CCIEs work on a privileged basis with Cisco's internal engineers in isolating problems with IOS Software network management tools and coming up with workarounds or obtaining software updates to resolve problems. CCIEs represent an excellent value because their deep expertise allows them to fix seemingly intractable problems rapidly. In common instances, less seasoned engineers can burn up hours or days struggling with a task that an experienced CCIE can solve in just minutes.
Most Progent CCIEs are not only experienced with Cisco technologies, but have multiple advanced industry certifications such as Microsoft MCSE, and a major security certification such as CISA or CISM. This allows Progent to provide complete solutions that incorporate a wide array of technologies without incurring extra costs and delays managing multiple consultants.
Progent's CCIE Support Services
The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their services are not readily available to the general public. Progent is among the few service firms that makes CCIEs accessible to help small and mid-size companies. Also, Progent offers quick contact with a CCIE online so that you can get immediate support for complex network issues that are impacting worker productivity but are outside the experience of your local network maintenance personnel. Progent's CCIE engineers can tie into your network using sophisticated remote support technology in order to perform quick and affordable diagnosis and remediation of urgent system trouble.
