Wireless networking technology has evolved dramatically in the last few years. More than ever, true experts are now needed by enterprises in order to take advantage of wireless services and use them for maximum business value.

Perhaps you've been working with wireless networks for awhile, gaining the specialized knowledge and experience necessary to deploy and manage this advanced technology. Now, with the introduction of the CCIE Wireless certification, you have a path to be recognized as a wireless expert. And remember, achieving a CCIE, apart from being one of the most respected and technically advanced IT certifications, usually means that the network engineer has a high level of expertise with a technology. Customers give a lot of credibility and respect to those dedicated enough to have gone through the process of getting certified. So dive in and follow the path we've forged to help advance and recognize wireless expertise!

Customers and partners today do not understand that as mobility solutions become more complex and mission critical, the importance of a properly designed wireless network increases exponentially. Read what Brett Galloway, a Cisco Senior Vice President for Wireless & Security has to say.

The need for a CCIE Wireless certification is very real. Currently only a handful of industry certifications exist for wireless networking and most offer more of a theoretical perspective. A Cisco certification such as a CCIE Wireless sets wireless engineers apart in the industry, especially in the areas of design and implementation.

The new CCIE Wireless certification verifies that you have the necessary expertise to design, manage, and support wireless LANs. This expertise includes radio frequency (RF), antennas, wireless security, mobility, voice services, and advanced features. The CCIE Wireless certification will also validate that you have the practical, "hands-on" experience required for expert-level wireless job roles.

Why obtain the CCIE Wireless certification, especially if you already hold another CCIE-level certification? Research by Cisco and others indicates that networking professionals find obtaining a CCIE certification in an advanced technology such as wireless is very attractive to potential employers. Having specific expertise in wireless takes the professional beyond the baseline routing and switching knowledge companies deploying wireless demand as they expand their networks. With the CCIE Wireless certification, employers can more quickly validate your experience as you pursue new career opportunities in wireless networking. In addition, becoming a Cisco CCIE is a major achievement and translates to a higher salary, a promotion recognizing your expertise, more job security and status as an industry subject matter expert.

Wireless networking will continue to be a growing career field worldwide. Several recent articles in industry publications state that IT professionals lack wireless expertise and that wireless industry experts will be in very high demand in the near future. Key industry analysts such as Zeus Kerravala, Senior Vice President of Global Enterprise Research at Yankee Group are expecting countries including Brazil, China, India, and South Africa to see an exponential growth in wireless technology. "Wireless networking is one of the fastest growing advanced technologies globally and therefore training and certification for specialized wireless skills are in high demand, especially in emerging markets within Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and Latin America. We are looking for Cisco to lead the industry once again by developing a new expert level certification targeted for Wireless networking professionals, "says Kerravala.
