By 2014, Cisco believes traffic from wireless devices will exceed that from wired devices. It is also predicted that Wi-Fi and mobile devices will account for 61 per cent of IP traffic by 2016. The new networking credential will identify those industry professionals who have proven they possess the knowledge needed to successfully implement a robust network in the home. It is based on the body of knowledge found in CEDIA’s IP and networking track of learning.
This certification is ideally suited to those home technology professionals who install and configure residential systems; IT professionals who want to enhance their credibility within the consumer electronics industry; system designers who need to know they are specifying the right design and hardware and control system programmers who are now interacting with the network daily.
‘Virtually all technologies in the home are becoming part of the home network,’ said CEDIA’s education director, Matt Dodd. ‘To provide network systems that meet increasing speed and reliability requirements, the home technology professional of today and tomorrow must be able to design, install, configure, and maintain a high quality, complex network. CEDIA’s Residential Networking Specialist Credential seeks to raise the standard for home networks across the industry.’
