  • Premier Cisco Infrastructure Engineers
    The CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) certification is the top recognition for network professionals, and certifies a person's networking knowledge at the master level. CCIEs can resolve even the most challenging issues encountered in network design, deployment, management, protection, and repair. CCIEs operate on a privileged basis with Cisco's internal support staff in identifying anomalies with IOS Software network administration utilities and developing alternate approaches or installing software updates to fix problems. CCIEs are an exceptional value since their depth of experience allows them to solve the most complex problems rapidly. In many instances, less qualified consultants can wrestle with the same problems for hours or even days.
