Depois de tanta especulação chegou a nova versão v5 do CCIE R/S oficialmente:
On December 4, 2013, Cisco is announcing that the CCIE Routing and Switching (R&S) exam curriculum will be revised from version 4.0 to version 5.0. Cisco continually assesses and validates the technical expertise of network engineers working in global enterprise environments. The revision reflects both changes in technology and the evolution of job roles.
The last day to test for both the Written exam v4.0 (350-001) and Lab exam v4.0 will be June 3, 2014. The CCIE R&S Written and Lab exam v5.0 will be available for testing on June 4, 2014. This announcement provides a six-month notice to candidates allowing them time to schedule and pass Written and Lab exams v4.0.
Cisco will also be releasing new training materials within the Cisco expert-level training, preparing candidates for the version 5.0 Lab exam. They will include new virtual rack rentals, videos on demand, new workbook labs, and full-scale graded assessment labs, along with new courses. The virtual rack rentals will enable candidates to perform the workbook and technology-specific labs using an efficient and scalable delivery environment. These materials will be available starting in January 2014.
