Cisco Routing and Switching Certification

The CCNP Routing and Switching certification is appropriate for those with at least one year of networking experience who are ready to advance their skills and work independently on complex network solutions. Those who achieve CCNP Routing and Switching have demonstrated the skills required in enterprise roles such as network engineer, support engineer, systems engineer or network technician.

Beginning January 30, 2015, 300-101 ROUTE, 300-115 SWITCH and 300-135 TSHOOT exams will be the only exams available for registration.

Now, candidates can get 300-101 ROUTE, 300-115 SWITCH and 300-135 TSHOOT information with the following links.

Paths of Getting CCNP Routing and Switching Certified

Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) Routing and Switching certification validates the ability to plan, implement, verify and troubleshoot local and wide-area enterprise networks and work collaboratively with specialists on advanced security, voice, wireless and video solutions. The CCNP Routing and Switching certification is appropriate for those with at least one year of networking experience who are ready to advance their skills and work independently on complex network solutions.

Those who achieve CCNP Routing and Switching have demonstrated the skills required in enterprise roles such as network engineer, support engineer, systems engineer or network technician. The routing and switching protocol knowledge from this certification will provide a lasting foundation as these skills are equally relevant in the physical networks of today and the virtualized network functions of tomorrow.

In the CCNP Routing and Switching program, you will cover:

Implementing secure, IPv6-enabled LAN and WAN routing solutions to support today’s business-critical services and widespread adoption of BYOD across the enterprise
High availability, switch virtualization and scalable VPN technologies needed to support branch offices and to enable the mobile workforce

Two Paths to Certification
Option 1
If you are currently pursuing your CCNP Routing and Switching certification, you may choose to complete the v1.0 curriculum. Upon completion, the certification will be good for three years. The last day to test is January 29, 2015.
642-902 ROUTE
642-813 SWITCH
642-832 TSHOOT

Option 2
If you have not yet started pursuing the CCNP Routing and Switching certification or if you have only taken one of the three v1.0 exams, we recommend that you pursue the v2.0 certification.
