Derek Winchester of Custom Computer Specialists achieves the most prestigious networking certification in the industry.

Custom Computer Specialists Inc. (“Custom”), a leading IT services provider, today announced that Senior Solution Consultant, Derek Winchester, has been selected as a member of the Cisco CCIE Advisory Council for 2016 and 2017. The Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) certification is accepted worldwide as the most prestigious networking certification in the industry. Network Engineers holding an active Cisco CCIE certification are recognized for their expert network engineering skills and mastery of Cisco products and solutions. The CCIE community has established a reputation of leading the networking industry in deep technical networking knowledge and are deployed into the most technically challenging network assignments.

The program continually updates and revises its testing tools and methodologies to ensure unparalleled program quality, relevance and value. Through a rigorous written exam and a performance based lab, the CCIE program sets the standard for internetworking expertise.

Cisco introduced the CCIE certification in 1993 to assist the industry in distinguishing the top echelon of internetworking experts worldwide. Today, CCIE certification holders represent less than 3% of all certified Cisco professionals and less than 1% of the networking professionals worldwide.

“Custom is very proud that Derek will be part of the Cisco CCIE Advisory Council. It is always exciting and motivating to see our employees recognized in such a way. We have the best people in the industry working for Custom and it is validating to see that the industry holds them in such high regard as well.
