Introduction of the CCIE certificate
CCIE, the full name Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert, is an expert-level certification exam launched by Cisco in the United States in 1993. It is recognized globally as the most authoritative certification in the IT industry and the top certification in the global Internetworking field.
Cisco Certified Network Expert program (CCIE program) sets a professional standard for network technology, which is widely recognized by the industry. CCIE certificate is considered to be the best proof of professional network technology knowledge and rich working experience. According to Cisco official data，CCIE holders account for less than 3% of the total number of Cisco certificate, and less than 1% of global network practitioners. Cisco certificate provides engineers with the expertise they need to manage Cisco devices in today's rapidly changing network environment. CCIE is the certificate of the most advanced technical ability of Cisco (in addition to the newly launched CCA), which is located at the top of the Cisco certification system. In addition to the recognition of the whole industry, CCIE is also an indicator of your continuous possession of the latest network knowledge; you will become the most competitive person in your professional and technical field.
Obtaining CCIE certificate not only proves that your technology has reached the level of experts, and is recognized and affirmed by the industry, but also a symbol of honor and a manifestation of self-worth. Getting CCIE certificate has become the dream of every network technician. After passing the rigorous CCIE certification, you will get a CCO account number, get the support of Cisco secondary experts directly, and enjoy the privileges of CCIE.
Therefore, from the introduction of Cisco, we can know that the certificate is very valuable. Having a CCIE certificate is the best proof of one's own technical level.
CCIE employment direction
1. Network equipment manufacturers
Of course, the CCIE is mainly based on Cisco, so Cisco will certainly not refuse a person with CCIE. But will other companies accept it? Will do! There are three reasons. One is that the CCIE itself has a good technical background. The network technology is generally a standard technology, and all manufacturers are the same, with similar configurations. A good technician is easy to learn by analogy; the second is that the products of some manufacturers are similar to those of Cisco, and these manufacturers often adopt a follow-up strategy; the third reason is that other companies generally use CCIE to show their opinions. The four reason is that Cisco is leader in the network industry and it has developed a lot of network-related protocols. So we learn Cisco's technology, which is relatively more valuable.
2. Integrator and agent
Integrator: Integrate the products and services of many brands or manufacturers, provide a complete system and scheme to Party A's customers, be responsible for the operation of the overall system and bear the after-sales responsibility.
Agent: Maintain and expand the channel, acting as the manufacturer's products and services, need to undertake certain capital, logistics and service functions.
With CCIE certificate, we can work in some famous integrators and agents, such as general representative or gold agent of Cisco. In integrators and agents, we can get access to a variety of related engineering projects, large projects or small projects, and also learn a lot of practical knowledge. These projects can help us accumulate rich project work experience. Moreover, in the integrators and agents, CCIE certificate is also required. For example, the general agent or gold agent of Cisco must have a corresponding number of CCIE engineers before they can undertake projects and bid. In the system integration project, many owners put forward that the contractor must have CCIE certification experts before they are qualified to undertake the project. In order to enable customers to obtain expert level technical support, Cisco stipulates in its certification agency system that gold and silver brand certification agents must have a certain number of CCIE. So working in integrators, agents, if you have a CCIE certificate, it is very good for both individuals and companies.
3. Network Management
Some large companies range from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands. These companies include banks, securities, insurance, petrochemicals, electric power, transportation, civil aviation, large multinational companies and so on. It is no exaggeration to say that these companies are like a small country. Their network is huge and complicated due to various reasons. The network scale of some companies far exceeds that of an ISP. Of course, such a network needs some network experts to maintain. Moreover, the networks of these companies are not to provide services to others, but to run a large number of applications, such as ERP systems or OA, etc. Therefore, they must be familiar with the host operating system and some databases, and the requirements for network administrators are very high. high. The network administrators of such a large company are generally not one, but multiple, each managing different things.
The above is a summary of our CCIE job hunting and why CCIE is so easy to find a job. Hope everyone can pass CCIE.
