Cisco Announces Storage Networking CCIE
Cisco Systems has announced that it will be adding a new Storage Networking track to its line of Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) credentials.
The title is designed to certify candidates expert-level knowledge in intelligent storage solutions over extended network infrastructure using multiple transport options such as Fibre Channel, iSCSI, FCIP and FICON, Cisco said.
Like the other CCIE titles, CCIE Storage Networking will require passing both a written qualification exam as well as a hands-on lab exam.
A beta for the written exam will run from Nov. 18 through Dec. 16 at Pearson Vue and Prometric testing centers worldwide for a discounted price. The live version of this exam as well as the lab are expected in the first three months of 2005, the company said.
