Hi Phil,

Here is an answer to this question from Ben Ng @ Cisco from a great CCIE-V Ask the Expert event;

Hi Ben,

First off, many thanks for your participation here :) A question that keeps popping up is;

"When will the CCIE - Voice exam topics switch from CCM 4.x based to CUCM 6.x based?"

Any definitive answer here (or even a "best guess?")

Thanks so much!


"Hi Rob,

Thank you for the welcome and popping the most popular question these days.

Unfortunately I don't have an definitive answer for you at this time - we are still working through the process of deciding on the next round of equipment list and version upgrades

Our announcement will come out at least 6 months before the actual event, and for those who are planning their study efforts, I don't think the upgrade will take place in calender year 2008.

Stay toned.


From this great "Ask the Expert" event;

Hope this helps!

Hi Phil,

You are most welcome my friend! The nice thing about your studies is that much of the knowledge gained via the 4.x train will be transferable to 6.x.

If I were a betting man, I would guess that the CCIE-V change will be announced in the 1st quarter of 2009 :)

Best of luck in your journey!
