  • Premier Cisco CCIE Consultants
    The CCIE certification is the premier recognition for network consultants, and certifies a person's networking knowledge at the master level. CCIEs can resolve even the most difficult issues surrounding network design, integration, administration, security, and repair. CCIEs operate closely with Cisco's internal support staff in isolating anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network management tools and developing alternate approaches or installing software updates to fix problems. CCIEs represent an excellent value since their deep expertise enables them to solve the most intractable problems quickly. In many cases, less qualified engineers can wrestle with identical tasks for many hours or even days.
