what would be the last date to clear current CCIP exams ?
as CCIE SP & CCNA SP is already there , CCIP exams would be replaced by CCNP SP.

so looking for timeline of those exams.
Well, I guess I'll wait until after that to see how much everything changes as far as the subject matter goes.
I don't really see it changing all that much, to be honest. Probably just a name change for the sake of conformity.
At this time there is no information to indicate changes or retirement details for the current CCIP certification exams. However, feel free to check Cisco Learning Network periodically for any future announcements on any CCIP certification changes.

CCNA® Service Provider or Service Provider (CCNA SP) as listed in the Associate certification section
At present the CCIP remains intact, the speculation is for how long now they've introduced an 'associate level SP' certification, where one never existed before.
I'm guessing the question most will want answered is; if the current (CCNA RS) is a prereq for CCIP, then what will the new CCNA SP be a prereq for?
I don't follow. What 640 exams are you referring to?
All CCIP exams have 642 prefixes, as well as the CCNP SPO exams.
Sorry, was referring to the port at the link Tanvir provided above.
