CCNP Service Provider Certification and Training
Software and networking become more and more interconnected every day.
Technology advances are enabling new applications and businesses that connect
everything—people, devices, machines, and applications. And with intent-based
networking, service providers can take advantage of automation to scale and secure
their infrastructure. To capitalize on these opportunities, today’s service provider
professionals need a broader range of skills and deeper focus in strategic technology
areas. The CCNP Service Provider certification program gives you exactly that
breadth and depth.
CCNP Service Provider certification was designed to help you prove your skills
in the ever-changing landscape of service provider technologies. The certification
covers core technologies and a service provider focus area of your choice. You
choose where you want to focus. You choose where to take your career.
To earn CCNP Service Provider, you pass two exams: a core exam and a service provider concentration exam of your choice. And now every exam in the CCNP Service Provider program earns an individual Specialist certification, so you get recognized for your accomplishments along the way.
- The core exam focuses on your knowledge of service provider infrastructure. The core exam is also the qualifying exam for CCIE Service Provider certification. Passing this exam helps toward earning both of these certifications.
- Concentration exams focus on emerging and industry-specific topics such as advanced routing, VPN services, and automation. You can prepare for concentration exams by taking their corresponding Cisco training courses.
