    Cisco products does not seems to be pretty good as compared to other principles in wireless industry. I think they have good statistics becuase the way they piggy-back wireless products while selling other major chunks in R&S, and security. If you compare it with companies like Aruba Networks, yes Cisco is way behind.

    In such scenario, how beneficial is for an individual to pursue a CCIE from such principle whose products are still in an infant stage of progression.

    Dang, I wish they’d update their own CCIE site more than biennially. I just went there this morning looking for information regarding the wireless CCIE.

    I have yet to ever sit a beta exam. Do they publish any kind of blueprint? I’m certainly no wireless expert but I’m an R&S CCIE with some wireless experience. And plenty of interest…

  5. Nouraj Jaman says:

    I am in the same boat, have alot of interest in the wireless but where can i get information on to read up about the CCIE wireless blueprint?

  6. I was looking forward to this. My plans have been for the CCIE Security by the end of this year and then the CCIE Voice next year. I may have to reconsider.

    I know there isnt any real material or even outline thats released yet for the lab but do you guys plan on a Program for this one?

  7. Most likely we will be offering an instructor-led and self-paced track for CCIE Wireless. Once the blueprint is finalized for the written and lab we’ll have a better idea on the timeline.


  8. Holy Mackanoly!!!

    I did the dance of joy after my boss sent me this very long awaited notice.

    Good Luck to us, wireless geeks! (so to speak)
