What is the CCIE EI?
The CCIE EI Certification is replacing Cisco’s CCIE Routing & Switching v5.0 certification and embraces the growing trend of interconnectedness between technology fields previously separated. Today’s networking engineers require a greater understanding of the work done by their software and development counterparts. By working in tandem and with a broader range of capabilities, engineers can make stronger, more efficient networks.
Is the CCIE EI right for you?
If you’re a networking professional who wants to be prepared for expert-level job opportunities, the CCIE EI is an invaluable tool. As one of the most respected certifications throughout the industry, earning your CCIE EI establishes you as knowledgeable, driven, and a leader amongst your peers.
