CCNA Wireless

I was wondering does anyone take this exam anymore. I want to learn more about wireless technology in a production environment and glanced over this certification on the Cisco website. Is it more beneficial to take this exam with the CCNA Security or should I pair CCNA Security with the Certified Wireless Network Administrator Certification from CWNP? It seems from the previous topics on the forum if I do CCNA Wireless I should invest in a Cisco 2100 Wireless Controller and Airopath 1200 AP. I was wondering if anyone have more information on the exam and outlook.

    If you want to be in wireless market then you should take the exam. You will be one up on a job opening if you have a wireless cert.
    CCNA sec is a cert for cisco sec. CWNA is a cert for wireless. This is more for RF side. They are totally different.
    The sec side of wireless would be in CWSP and CCNP-sec. This is to tie the AP and WLC into ACS or ISE. We can also call this AAA.

    I think you should invest on hardware. Not for the exam but for the experience itself. Building your own lab is the best way.
