    Very interesting. No wonder voice is so hot! icon_wink.gif
    I usually hang out on 224.0.0.10 (FF02::A) and 224.0.0.5 (FF02::5) when I'm in a non-proprietary mood.

    When I was in San Jose taking the R&S lab, there were 3 people taking the voice. 2 flew in from India, and 2 were on their 3rd attempt.

    Is that a jab at people from Indiana?

    Those storage numbers always amaze me. Is it that difficult (I'm aware that it skips the pro level) or is it just not in demand?

    They are lagging on the update to the statistics -- last update November 14th 2007

    I guess that means its too late to be one of the first 100 Storage Networking CCIEs.

    Haha, no! Just sayin' I guess they don't offer the Voice lab in India. :)

    I don't know how big Cisco is in the SAN world. My place of employment basically uses EMC only. Not saying my place is the standard though.

    I checked the equipment list for the SP CCIE
    3rd Party Fibre Channel Switch
    
    I think I'll wait until Cisco buys a Fibre Channel Switch company and at least brands it as Cisco -- then I'd guess they were serious about the storage market. icon_lol.gif

    The CCIE Voice Lab Exam is only offered at
    * Brussels, Belgium
        * RTP, USA
        * San Jose, USA
        * Sydney, Australia
        * Tokyo, Japan

    Yeah it's odd seeing the purple "3rd party" Brocade switches in the middle of the green Storage racks in RTP.

    The total number of CCIEs is a bit over 20,000 now.

    In the first week of February Scott Vermillion passed his exam earning him #19953. At the rate of 40 or so per week it should be up to around 20,150 now.

    MrD is #20217, so the numbers are over 20k, but there aren't 20,000 CCIEs yet, and there are 4000 or so that are inactive or let their certification expire.

    ah, so if you let your CCIE lapse completely they issue you a new number rather than re-activating your old one? That makes plenty of sense.

    The last assigned CCIE # minus 1024 - which was the starting number - gives you the number of people to achieve the CCIE.

    minus the CCIEs who haven't recertified gives you the number of Active CCIEs.

    When I checked out NetMasterClass after I saw your other post, I noticed that had one too: http://www.netmasterclass.net/
  • Paul BozPaul Boz Member Posts: 2,620 ■■■■■■■■□□
    Yep, just noticed that myself :)

    Mike, why did the CCIE start at a little over 1000?

    1024 was the first number and it was awarded to the lab itself. They chose 1024 because that is a a kilohertz because the lab 'hurts' and 'will really kill ya' according to Doyle Volume I first edition.
    That makes me laugh every time I see it icon_lol.gif

    But this one may be more realistic.
