    High Perks after Certification

This CCNP training is meant for those professionals who have one year of experience in the networking field and is one of many CISCO training. These professionals plan, implement, verify and troubleshoot LAN’s and WAN’s while working in conjunction with other network specialists such as those who work on the security system, wireless, voice and video solutions. The knowledge obtained from this certification provides a lasting foundation that is relevant in the physical as well as the virtualized networks of today and the coming times. 

Who should take this course

  • Network professionals including network engineers.
  • Network operations centre (NOC) technical support staffs.
  • Help desk specialists.
  • Any individual involved in implementation and verification of routeing protocols in enterprise networks.


Delegates must be experienced in the audit of operation path and switching technologies and implementation experience as required by the Cisco Network Devices Part 1 Version 2.0 (ICND1) and Cisco Network Devices Part 2 Version 2.0 (ICND2) courses.Any delegates having an equal skill can also sit for this course.


What Will You Learn

On completing the course, the candidates will have gained familiarity with the following concepts:

  • Plan and document the configuration and verification of routeing conventions in enterprise networks
  • Identify, analyse, and match OSPF multiarea routeing functions and benefits
  • Deploy and verify a Layer 3 solution using BGP to connect an enterprise network to a service provider
  • Implement and verify a redistribution solution in a multiprotocol network using Cisco IOS Software features
  • Identify the technologies, modules, and metrics of EIGRP
  • Evaluate common network performance issues and determine the implements that are needed to provide Layer 3 path control that uses Cisco IOS Software features to control the path

What's included

  Course Overview

This certification is job-role-focused and utilises lab-based learning. Besides it also allows the candidates to maximise their investment in education and increase the value of their enterprise network.The training tests the routeing,switching and troubleshooting knowledge and skills of the candidates.
