Scope of CCIE

What is CCIE?

CCIE stands for Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert. CCIE is the highest level of Certification offered by Cisco Systems. Career as CCIE Security or CCIE Voice Engineer is best option to choose for a fresher graduate. CCIE Security Version 4 and CCIE Voice Certifications Training is offered with 100% Job guarantee with starting package of 6-10 Lacs per annum depending upon the program.

Salary of CCIE in India:

CCIE R&S Salary in India, as a fresher: 4-5 Lacs per annum.
CCIE Security Salary Package in India, as a fresher: 6-8 Lacs per annum.
CCIE Voice Salary Package for freshers: 8-10 Lacs per annum. 

Salary packages with 4 years of experience:

CCIE R&S: 8-15 Lacs
CCIE Security: 14-20 Lacs
CCIE Voice: 17-30 Lacs

Packages for experienced engineers depends upon many factors like, number of years of experience they gained, up-gradation of knowledge and certifications as well. 

Total number of CCIE in World:

There are around only 25000 active CCIE's available Worldwide, in which only 2800 CCIE Security engineers are available and there are only around 1200 CCIE Voice engineers available in the world.
IT giants like Apple, Microsoft, Google, IBM, TCS, Orange, Accenture, HCL and 1500+ companies across globe need CCIE Certified Engineers to handle their own networks and of their clients as well. Industry needs more than 70,000 CCIE Security and CCIE Voice Engineers.

Indian freshers are really doing well in CCIE. Passing rate/result of CCIE R&S, Security and Voice was were low before 2010. But from last two years, young Engineers of India are doing great job in CCIE Written and Lab exams, as passing rate of previous 8-10 years was around 10%, but in India as now resources and good institutes are available and racks are also available for practice. Passing Result of previous two years is around 60%, which is still about to increase in coming months.

Passing CCIE Lab exam is no more that tough. As a fresher can also do CCIE. Institutes in India are providing CCIE level labs and World Class CCIE Certified trainers, which turned this giant ship in a new direction of innovation and created such a huge gap.

CCIE passing rate of fresher Engineers in India is higher than Experienced professionals. As Experienced professional try to do it with their experience and without guidance, whereas fresher graduates dedicate a year for this certification and learn from well experienced and World Class CCIE engineers/trainers and make it in a single go.
As per our analysis, we realized that experienced CCNA or CCNP professionals have good knowledge in some particular technologies only on which they were working from last 3 years, whereas fresher CCIE Certified engineer will have sound knowledge in all technologies covered in CCIE blueprint, which almost cover everything in that particular track. Those freshers after getting 1 year of experience, are promoted in better quality work profiles, because their expert knowledge and that one year of experience creates huge difference between that fresher graduate and 3 years of experienced CCNA or CCNP engineer. This is how that CCIE fresher after 1 year of experience becomes superior than 3-4years experienced Engineer.
CCIE salary in India, as a fresher is in between 5-10 Lacs per annum, depending upon the program.

Scope of CCIE is bright than any other course in IT. CCIE is a big dream for candidates looking for career in Networking. As there are very few active CCIE's in World. Companies continuously requires lots of Expert level knowledge engineers, as infrastructure and requirements are increasing day by day. Industry is lacking of candidates with good technical skills. Scope and Salaries of CCIE are not bad, if we compare it with other professional courses like CA, MBA or MCA etc.

First of all, i have seen many students without appropriate knowledge about CCIE. They have a very first unanswered question in their mind, that "What is CCIE?"
I am here to answer this question in my way. What is CCIE? CCIE stands for Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert. CCIE is Highest level Certification offered by Cisco Systems, in different tracks. CCIE is offered in R&S, Security, Voice, Service Provider, Wireless, Data Center, Service Provider Operations and Storage Networking.
What is CCIE R&S?
CCIE R&S is highest level certification offered by Cisco, in Data Network Implementation. CCIE Service Provider, Service Provider operations and Data Center, all are variables or next levels of R&S. R&S stand for Routing and Switching. Configuring Routers and Switches to configure a Data Network.
CCIE Security is for Network Security. As now Cisco has released new Version of CCIE Security, i.e. Version 4.0.
This certification is more powerful now, as compared to old CCIE Security Version 3.0 Certification.
CCIE is also known as PHD in Networking, as it is the highest level in this domain. After doing CCIE, even a fresher can get job at higher package than CCNP Experienced engineer.
