    The CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) certification is the top recognition for networking engineers, and indicates an individual's technical skills at the expert level. CCIEs can handle even the most difficult problems associated with network design, integration, management, security, and troubleshooting. CCIEs work on a privileged basis with Cisco's internal engineers in isolating problems with IOS Software network administration tools and developing alternate approaches or obtaining software patches to correct problems. CCIEs represent an excellent value since their deep experience allows them to fix the most intractable problems rapidly. In many instances, less qualified consultants can wrestle with identical problems for hours or days.
