IT Consultant Daniel Russell qualifies as a Cisco Certified Specialist

An IT Consultant from David Allen IT Solutions has recently qualified as a Linux Professional and Microsoft Certified Azure Administrator Associate as well as passing his CCNP (Cisco Certified Network Professional) Enterprise Core exam.



Daniel Russell, 27, has worked for David Allen IT Solutions for four years. Originally from Dumfries, Daniel began his career working for a Dumfries provider. When his family re-located to Gretna, Daniel began his career with David Allen.

To qualify as a Cisco Certified Specialist an individual has to demonstrate their knowledge of implementing core enterprise network technologies including dual stack architecture, virtualization, infrastructure, network assurance, security and automation.

Daniel said: “The business offers a great working environment and provides me with the ability to exert my knowledge and skills on implementing and developing new systems whether it be for internal use or for a client. It’s also a great team to work with.”

Daniel continued: “I am very passionate about self-development and like to learn new technologies. There are so many benefits from studying and learning about how different technologies work, particularly in IT which operates at a very fast pace. It is important to diversify your skillset and keep things at the front of your mind.”

Daniel has plans to further his knowledge by completing the Azure Technology qualifications as well as completing the CCNP Enterprise exam.

We understand the importance of investing in our employee’s education. Daniel’s new qualifications will allow him to carry out projects which continue to add value to our client’s businesses by introducing efficiency, reliability and stability.

We will continue to support and help Daniel achieve this by providing technical projects that he can use to develop his skillset and deliver valuable projects. In addition to this, the team will support Daniel with the client consultancy jobs he will be delivering in the times ahead.
