Description

Cisco Certified Network Professional certification validates advance knowledge and skills required to integrate into underlying network architectures. Furthermore, this certification validates a robust set of skills in implementing, operating, configuring, and troubleshooting a converged IP network.

With a CCNP Data Center certification, a network professional can create a collaborative solution that is transparent, scalable, and manageable.

On October 19, 2010, Cisco announced the evolution of the CCDC certification, renaming it CCNP Data Center. The new CCNP Data Center certification reflects alignment to Cisco’s Data Center solutions portfolio and aligns it with the latest courses and exams.
