ccie voice…

retires in february of 2014… of course it is being rebranded but voice engineers will not be grandfathered into the new brand… in simple language, a voice engineer may keep his retired voice certificate so long as he/she passes a viable written every 2 years, but will not qualify for the new collaboration cert… that viable written however will not include ccie voice written because that is gone in november…

i was a little late to this party but i am not surprised…  on march 26th 2013 the ccna changed dramatically… that could only mean one thing; a lot will change in most tracks… if you haven’t read the new icnd2 and you are working toward ccnp, you should because the new icnd2 is ccnp-lite… that means there will be changes to ccnp r&s before long, and naturally ccie r&s…

the trickle down to ccnp and ccna voice will have a definite impact in that those tracks will be meaningless without a ccie cert to anchor them…

does that mean you should trash everything ccna and ccnp voice… of course not… those lab books and ocg’s are still meaningful for enrichment purposes but that road doesn’t lead to rome anymore…
