IPexpert’s International Reach Grows With Netmetric Solutions Partnership

CHINA, Mich., Aug. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Less than 20,000 individuals worldwide currently hold the CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetworking Expert) certification, which places them among the elite computer networking experts anywhere. This distinction also demands a six-figure annual salary in America, according to recent national surveys.

To become CCIE-certified, an engineer must pass a grueling 8-hour-long hands-on "lab" exam conducted by Cisco (, the global leader in computer network solutions. IPexpert ( is a primary training organization, focused solely on preparing seasoned computer network engineers for the coveted CCIE certification exams, through various learning solutions.

A typical preparation plan for a successful candidate includes working through self-study training products, which can take three to six months to complete. Then, prior to attempting the CCIE exam, many candidates choose to attend intense live classroom training, lasting one or two weeks, up to 14 hours per day. Although IPexpert's industry-leading products are used by CCIE candidates around the world, its popular live courses are generally offered only in the United States and limited key locations abroad. With growing demand for these courses in various emerging markets, such as India and Saudi Arabia, IPexpert has aligned with Netmetric Solutions to expand its reach.

Netmetric Solutions ( is a training organization headquartered in Hyderabad, India. The company is established as a leading provider of CCIE training in its geographic region, creating an ideal opportunity for resource sharing and cooperative marketing efforts with IPexpert. The partnership allows both entities to leverage the other's physical presence and brand recognition in their regions.

President of Netmetric Solutions Khawar Butt is a veteran in the IT (Information Technology) industry, with over 30 years of experience and many career certifications to his credit, including four of the available five CCIE certification specialties. "We are very excited to be working with IPexpert in this partnership that will help bring CCIE-level training to students throughout the world. Having worked with IPexpert in the past and understanding how the company works will be a big plus in this partnership." He adds, "We previously partnered in 2004 to bring to market one of the first offerings in the world for the CCIE Security specialization. I look forward to bringing similar types of groundbreaking products to the market in the future."
