Upon passing his CCIE Lab (CCIE #5244) in the late 90s, Wayne realized that CCIE Lab training resources were extremely limited. At the time, he had just been published on the topics of "Building Cisco Remote Access Networks" (ISBN: 1-928993-13-X) and "Configuring Cisco AVVID" (ISBN: 1-928994-14-8), and was a Contributing Author / Technical Editor for "Cisco Security, QoS and AVVID" (ISBN: 1928994490). He decided to bring his technical knowledge and writing talents into the Cisco training market, so in 2001, he founded iPexpert.
As a result of high-end products, great employees and dedicated customer service, iPexpert has experienced phenomenal results (over 3,100 successful CCIE labs passed) and world-wide recognition in the "niche" CCIE training market. In addition to an industry-leading number of successful clients, iPexpert has also gained corporate recognition, appearing in Inc. Magazine’s annual list of the fastest growing privately-owned companies in America for three consecutive years, and being awarded the Corp! award winner twice.
Today, iPexpert continues to assist thousands of CCIE R&S, Voice (now Collaboration), Data Center, Security and Wireless engineers prepare for their CCIE certification. Due to a wide range of self-study preparation tools (Video on Demand, Audio Lectures, Self-Study Workbooks, Detailed Solution Guides, and Online Rack Rental) and classroom (and Online-HD-ILT) training, iPexpert is able to offer clients a very large portfolio of learning tools, along with the much needed peer and instructor support required throughout this challenging certification journey.
