We all know CCIE is a dream for all the certification aspirers, especially those who are Cisco Certified Professionals. I was just wondering how many CCIE certified Experts exists? As per Cisco Systems latest update on 26th of October 2009 there are 20782 CCIE Professionals Experts worldwide. Interestingly 86% (17891) of CCIE professionals are certified in Routing and Switching and the second choice is being the CCIE Security with mere 2337 Security professional. That’s a reason why I always hear there is a lack of CCIE Security Professionals. So CCIE Security can be good options for CCIE aspirers.

One Interesting fact is the total number of CCIE Voice Professionals they are growing wow. Quite a sharp growth in a short span of time.
