Time has come to decide what to do in 2014. After clearing my CCIE wireless lab exam on Aug 2013, I was wondering what’s next for me. I know I will be busy with migrating my campus network to Converged Access (from CUWN) & enabling 802.11ac (deployment of 3700) would be two key tasks in the wireless space.
From study perspective, I have decided to go for CWNE (Certified Wireless Network Expert) certification within 2014.
I have already purchased official study guides for this & all arrived today.(Thanks Tuhin for posting these to me & become my study partner on this journey)
You will have plenty of work to do for the next year!
Good luck with your CWNE goal!
Happy holidays,wish you happiness and health for you and your family!
Thanks Chris & Wish you the same.. Merry X’mas & Happy new year too.
Hope your ccie exam preparation going well…
You, sir, deserve a medal! No wait, you already got two with your CCIEs 🙂
I wish you the best for this new goal. I’m currently preparing CCIE Wireless so I understand what you’ve gone through 😉
Thank you & wish your Merry X’mas & happy new year too..
I wish you all the best for this new goal.
Merry Xmas and happy new year.
Wish you a merry X’mas & happy new year too…

Hello Riska ,
after I passed in my ccie wireless exam, Still I can not decide what is the next step, CCIE Voice ….. CCIE Security ……or Aruba Certifications !
why did you choose to go with CWNE ?
what is your advice ?
I still feel, I should learn wireless more, fundamentals. CWNE is the best on that as it is vendor neutral & go deep in wireless technology.
All depend on your interest & technology you are working with.
Hi sir , After CCNA wireless is it wise to go direclty for CCIE wireless ? or shall I go for CCNP papers?
If you haven’t got any CCIE lab attempt experience or enough practical experience configuring Cisco wireless products, I would suggest to follow the CCNP & learn the technology first.
For me, I had CCIE R&S & I knew how I should study + 2-3 years of experience configuring Cisco wireless products.
Hi Sir ,
Thanks a lot for your suggestion. I am not able to find complete study guide for CCNP wireless .I am getting only quick reference books for that.
Probably look for CCNP wireless training providers & see.
Here is one provider
So in your opinion, how is a person supposed to study for the CCNP-Wireless certification when it has no textbooks for the track? IMHO, the quick reference sheets were spit out just the keep the track from having nothing at all. Nor can I find out from anyone at Cisco if any are coming out. I’m wondering if I’d be better off pursuing the CWNA/CWNP/etc track instead? What do you think? Unfortunately, I don’t work with wireless where I’m employed.
Yes, for CCNP-W there are not official exam guides, you have to go for instructor lead training courses if you want to get some complete reference books.
I think CWNA/CWNP path is ideal if you want to learn the wireless technology (vendor neutral),It is good for you as you do not get day to day wireless configuration experience.
Even I did CCIE-W, I feel CWNP is very good to learn wireless technology which will not cover any Cisco exam scopes.
