Cisco Network Support Certifications tutorials

  • The network support certifications are designed for network professionals who support Cisco-based networks of LAN and WAN routers and switches.


Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switching

  • If you want to be a network administrator or enter the profession of network­ing and telecommunication, ISP or Mobile Co. then CCNA is the right place to start. The CCNA certification is designed for networking professional looking to advance their career. Although you only have to take one exam to achieve this certification, there is still plenty of preparation you must undertake. To pass the CCNA exam, you will need to have the following skills:

  • Be able to install, configure, and operate simple-routed LAN,

  • Install and operate routed WAN, and switched LAN networks

  • Basic Cisco router configuration

  • Understand and configure IP, IPX, Serial, AppleTalk, Frame Relay, IP RIP, IGRP, IPX RIP,

  • Configure and manage VLANs, Ethernet, and access control lists

  • You can pass CCNA with Old Track ( Last day to test 30/09/2013 )


1 Paper 640-802 CCNA Exam fees $295


2 Papers 640-822 ICND1 Exam Fees $150 and

640-816 ICND2 Exam Fees $150


CCNA New Track 1 paper 200-120 or

2 paper 100-101 ICND1

200-101 ICND2


Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP)

  • After you complete your CCNA, you'll find that there are still plenty of oppor­tunities to advance your skills. The Cisco Certified Network Professional is the second-tier certification in the network support track. The CCNP certification for routing and switching technologies requires that you first achieve CCNA certifi­cation. To pass the CCNP exam, you will need to have the following skills:

  • Be able to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot complex routed LAN, routed WAN, and switched LAN networks, and dial access services

  • Understand complex networks, including IP, IGRP, IPX, Async Routing, AppleTalk, extended access lists, IP RIP, route redistribution, IPX RIP, route summarization, OSPF, VLSM, BGP, Serial, IGRP, Frame Relay, ISDN, ISL, X.25, DDR, PSTN, PPP, VLANs, Ethernet, access control lists, 802.10, FDDI, and transparent and translational bridging

After you have finished preparing for the CCNP,

You need to pass 3 Exams for CCNP :- Each Exams $200

  • 642 - 902 Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE )

  • 642 - 813 Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks ( SWITCH )

  • 642 - 832 Troubleshooting & Maintaining Cisco IP Network (TSHOOT)

In addition to these standard certifications, there are also specialized career paths for those who achieve CCNP certification. A specialization gives a CCNP a technology focus to better align their skills with the needs of clients. Specializa­tions include:

  • Voice access

  • Network management

  • Security


  • SNA/IP integration

  • SNA/IP network management


Cisco Certified Internetworking Expert (CCIE)

  • The CCIE certification is one of the most rigorous and challenging certifications available for networking professionals. The rewards for someone who has this coveted certification are high. CCIEs receive annual salaries in the six-digit range. CCIE consultants have hourly rates in the hundreds of dollars. You can think of CCIEs as brain surgeons for computer networks. There aren't that many of them in the world, and they are the only ones who are trusted to get certain jobs done right.

  • Obtaining CCIE certification is not easy nor is it cheap. While you aren't required to have any prior certifications to attempt the CCIE written exam, it is recommended that you do complete your CCNA and your CCNP to help prepare you for the chal­lenges you will face as a CCIE. In addition, Cisco recommends that you have a mini­mum of two years of directly related work experience and that you complete the following:

  • Attend all recommended courses at a Cisco-authorized training partner facility. This ticket will run you in the neighborhood of $15,000 [Rs. 60,000 to 1,00,000/-] for the courses alone.

  • Pass the written exam. The $350 price tag does not come with a certifica­tion, however. Passing this exam only gives you the opportunity to take the lab exam. The written exam is used to narrow down the pool to those who really know subject well.

  • Pass the two-day lab exam. (First you will need to pass the written exam.) At $1,500 per opportunity, you will want to make sure that you are serious about passing this exam and prepare yourself thoroughly.

Upon completing CCIE certification, u have the following knowledge and skills:

  • General LAN/WAN knowledge, including data encapsulation and layering; windowing, flow control, and their relation to delay; error detection and recovery; link-state, distance-vector, and switching algorithms; and man­agement, monitoring, and fault isolation

  • Knowledge of a variety of corporate technologies-including major services provided by desktop, WAN, and Internet service companies-as well as the functions, addressing structures, and routing, switching, and bridging impli­cations of each of their protocols

  • Knowledge of Cisco-specific technologies, including router/switch platforms, architectures, and applications; communication servers; protocol translation and applications; configuration commands and their impact on the system/ network; and LAN/WAN interfaces, capabilities, and applications


Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA)

  • On the design side of Cisco certifications, CCDA is the first-tier certification. To become a CCDA, you will need to pass Cisco's Designing Cisco Networks (DCN) exam, 640-441. A CCDA should be able to design simple routed LAN, routed WAN, and switched LAN net­works. (Assumes prerequisite knowledge and skills to install, configure, and operate the same.


Cisco Certified Design Professional (CCDP)

  • Becoming a CCDP is as difficult as becoming a CCNP. Before you can take the CCDP exams, you must have your CCDA and your CCNA (the first- and second­ tier certifications in the network design track). If you already have your CCNP, you can take one exam, Cisco Internetwork Design (CID), 640-025.
