CCIE Security or CCIE Voice, which is better?

CCIE Security vs CCIE Voice/Service Provider

Students are getting confused in choosing track for their CCIE and the reason behind is, that they are getting confused in between CCIE Security and CCIE Voice, some are even thinking about CCIE Wireless also.

In India, if we talk about salaries offered to fresher CCIE engineers, then Salary packages of a fresher CCIE Security engineer is around 7 Lacs per annum, whereas CCIE Voice freshers can expect around 8-10 Lacs Package as a fresher. Students should choose their field as per their area of interest. There are no jobs for CCIE Service Provider or CCIE Wireless freshers.CCIE Salary in India for fresher depends upon expertize of student, as CCIE Security and CCIE Voice booms are still about to come. Experienced CCIE Security Engineer can get upto 30 Lacs package, depending upon his experience. Experienced CCIE Voice engineer can expect upto 40 Lacs package, depending upon the experience. But there are no experienced CCIE engineers in the market, that is the reason companies have to recruit fresher CCIE's.

Choosing CCIE Wireless or Service Provider as a fresher is really a bad option, because companies are not hiring Service provider or Wireless or data Center freshers. There are no CCIE Wireless jobs available in India as a fresher.

One more reason for choosing CCIE Security or Voice is that, there are many jobs available in Indian market for CCIE Security or Voice freshers. More then 70,000 CCIE Security and CCIE Voice Engineers are needed all over the globe, where as there are only around 3,500 available, as per December 2011 statistics and demand is likely to be increased in coming years.

Its just a starting time of boom in CCIE Security or CCIE Voice jobs in India. In coming times, CCIE Security engineers will get more opportunities. Career in CCIE Security is bright. CCIE Salary in India, for a fresher is still more then average MBA or Mtech or MCA engineers. So, doing CCIE Security or CCIE Voice after Btech or BCA is best option to choose for a fresher candidate.

CCIE Salary in India

As a fresher, a CCIE Security Certified engineer can expect a minimum of  7Lacs per annum. Whereas, after two years of experience, salary can grow upto 15-20Lacs, depending upon your up gradations and level of learning during job. But if we talk about CCIE Service Provider, then a company won't hire a fresher, because of tough job responsibilities in these tracks.
But doing CCIE security or CCIE voice firstly and then getting some experience and getting Service Provider or Data Center as next option for Dual CCIE is best option. If we talk about CCIE Voice Salary Package as a fresher, then he can also expect 8-10 lacs package.

In Security track, jobs are available more then any other track. So a Candidate, who is not able to get CCIE Certification, can also expect a starting package of around 3 Lacs minimum. But he/she should have good level of knowledge.
If a candidate don't have CCIE Security Lab certification, but have knowledge of CCIE Security, then candidate can expect starting package of 3Lacs as a fresher.

Doing CCIE Security Certification, instead of CCIE Voice or SP, is best choice.

CCIE Voice is also in good demand now. Especially in India, CCIE voice is going to make boom in career. Salaries will be better than CCIE R&S or Security.

CCIE Security and CCIE Voice are obviously best options to choose. Many companies are hiring freshers in India. Even companies are also hiring BPO guys, who do CCIE after 2-3 years in BPO. Career and salaries are really too good.
