The industry standard certification for networking has always been Cisco. 
I'm wondering if it's still worth while doing the CWNE vs CCIE wireless?

Nicolas, there is no question that Cisco certifications are held in high respect. The benefit of the CWNE certification is that it is vendor-neutral. It continues to grow and gain respect itself and we find that many of our CWNEs are also CCIE wireless certified.

I believe so. I'm only studying at the CWNA level at this point but I prefer vendor-neutral certifications or information that way I can apply the knowledge to any vendor and adapt when it comes to terms or implementation strategies. I think it would go a long way to having both, but especially the CWNE.

Hi Nicolas,

I was a CCIE in wireless before jump into CWNE path. I can tell you I have learn a lot of thing about wireless in this CWNP program.

If your day to day job is to configure cisco products, then CCIE would gives you highest demand in that field. But that does not mean you know wireless.

CWNA/CWNP is all about how wireless works & no mater which vendor equipment you are using. So if you want to learn wireless CWNP is a  MUST.

When it comes to select which one first, CWNP or CCIE/CCNP-W, if you have experience of configuring wireless that would come handy in studying for CWNP (which was the case for me).

Bottom line is even if you get CCIE (or any other vendor expert level cert) , CWNP is a MUST, if you want to say you are a true wireless expert.

I have been doing security for a number of years and would like to expand my skills on the wireless side due to the increasing trend in this technology. There is no point in just doing Kuna as it is very primitive and one thinks that SOSP and SWAP provide require a good level of understanding and can be helpful. CWNA-107 Dumps

But the question is: Do these certificates worth anything to invest in terms of the effort and money that goes into getting them.

The wrong question may be to ask in this forum but I though someone has done the necessary research and will be willing to share the results in this forum on the benefit of the Conb Collection of certifications. CWNA-107 Questions Dumps
