Contact a Cisco CCIE for High-level Network Troubleshooting
The Cisco CCIE certification is the top accreditation for network consultants, and certifies a person's technical skills at the master level. CCIEs know how to resolve the most difficult challenges occurring in network design, installation, administration, protection, and repair. CCIEs work on a privileged basis with Cisco's in-house product support engineers in analyzing anomalies with IOS network management utilities and developing workarounds or locating software updates. Cisco qualified CCIEs are an exceptional value because their deep experience enables them to solve the most intractable problems quickly. In common cases, less seasoned engineers can wrestle for hours or days with the same tasks that a Cisco-qualified CCIE can dispose of in minutes.
