That number will rise to 69% in the next five years.Wireless: While 33% of surveyed companies currently have a position dedicated to wireless, that value will double over the next five years to 66%.(Stats were arrived at by Forrester Consulting during a study sponsored by Cisco.)Those statistics tell a simple tale:Network admins who have knowledge and certification in security, wireless, and voice will have a huge advantage over network admins who do not.That's why Cisco is introducing these new certifications – and this is a tremendous opportunity for CCNAs worldwide to acquire and demonstrate knowledge in three of the fastest growing areas in networking today!There's one detail you need to take care of now, though.To earn any of these CCNA specialist certifications, you must earn your CCNA first, by either the one-exam (640-802) path or the two exam path (ICND 1 and 2).This announcement by Cisco makes it more important than ever to be CCNA certified.
