    Re: Question regards CCIP retirement.

    The issue with Cisco is that as usual they make it so easy thats dificult to understand and on top of that we dont received the right explanations from who is the one to need to provide the answers. When using that tool everyone has his own interpretation, but the wrong interpretation cost us money and time. Could someone from Cisco care about providing anwers for the one who already have  the CCIP cert? Just if you care.

    Re: Question regards CCIP retirement.

    All right, I made my mind: I already started my studies through BGP and I'm going to try BGP+MPLS before the end of July, for ROUTE and QoS (too) to complete CCIP there is time up to the end of Octobre https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/message/227868#227868

     

    IF it turns out ol' MPLS is valid for CCNP SP, probably I'll consider SPEDGE instead of QoS, anyway to learn old MPLS stuff can't hurt

     

     

    My constraints are that CCNP SP training material will not be available for a while, and  to lab it is going to be VERY expensive

     

    last but not the least, ROUTE is valid for CCNP R&S too

     

     

     

    my complaint is that for CCNA SP you need TWO CCNA concentrations (at least in price)

     

     

     

     

    edit: about the tool

     

     

    if you select ROUTE, QoS and separate BGP and MPLS, it says that for CCNP SP you need SPCORE and SPEDGE

    if you select ROUTE, QoS and BGP+MPLS, it says only "Qualifies for CCIP Certification"

    if you select ROUTE and BGP+MPLS, it says "Migration to CCNP SP: SPEDGE"

     

    quite misleading

    Re: Question regards CCIP retirement.

    BIGEVIL - I think the migration policy for current CCIPs who passed the ROUTE exam in the last three years, you would need to pass SPCORE and SPEDGE.

     

    If you passed with BSCI, you would need to pass the above two exams, and either SPROUTE or ROUTE.

     

    Hopefully a staff member here or from Learning @ Cisco can chime in here.

    I've reached out to Pearson to see if they can comment on that or not - hopefully they can shed some light!

    Re: Question regards CCIP retirement.

    Hi all,

     

    Just to provide some clarification, candidates who hold a valid CCIP certification and would like to achieve CCNP Service Provider will only need to take and pass two exams, 642-887 SPCORE and 642-889 SPEDGE.

     

    In addition, having a valid CCIP will fulfill the pre-requsite requirement for CCNP Service Provider. In other words, it will not be necessary to obtain the CCNA Service Provider certification (the pre-requisite to CCNP Service Provider) if you already hold a valid CCIP certification.

     

    For individuals who are pursuing the CCIP certification (but not currently CCIP certified) and the CCNP Service Provider, they are able to apply some completed CCIP exams towards the CCNP Service Provider certification.

     

    Not all exams within the CCIP track will be accepted towards CCNP Service Provider and the CCIP-CCNP Service Provider Migration tool helps to determine which exams are applicable. However, we have been informed that there are a few errors within the CCIP-CCNP Service Provider Migration tool which may explain the confusion on some exam combinations. They are working to fix as soon as possible.

     

    There are some CCIP Certification Retirement FAQ's that may help answer some additional questions and they can be found here.

     

    Regards,

    Rigo

    Re: Question regards CCIP retirement.

    Hi Rigo, thank you for your reply,

    just one more question, i have my last exam of CCIP track (route) next week, so i can take the exam, become CCIP certified and then complete the  642-887 SPCORE and 642-889 SPEDGE and become a CCNP SP certified or this only applies to CCIP completed before?

    Thank you very much for the clarifications, Rigo

     

    BTW I can finally say that I'm happy that Cisco decided to give a refresh to the old tired CCIP (and CCNP SP sounds better too)

    Re: Question regards CCIP retirement.

    Hi nmarques and BIGEVIL,

     

    If you hold a current CCIP certification OR obtain your CCIP certification (before it retires), you will only need to take and pass 642-887 SPCORE and 642-889 SPEDGE to achieve the CCNP Service Provider.

     

    The CCIP-CCNP Service Provider Migration Tool will also be very helpful in identifying the exams you will need to pass to achieve the CCNP Service Provider certification, though there are current updates in progress for the tool.

     

    Regards,

    Rigo

    Oh that's not too bad then, as long as you don't have to sit the ccna sp exams if I do get my CCIP in time!

    Re: Question regards CCIP retirement.

    I agree, that makes transition from CCIP to CCNP SP rather smooth.

    Hi Rigo,

     

    I'm just wondering why Cisco didn't concider using the CCIE-SPv3 written exam as a migration exam since it covers the desired concepts & IOS.

     

    Cisco recertifies your CCNP-S if you passed the CCIE voice written exam or even a voice professional level exam. Two different tracks totally. Wouldn't it be more reasonible to migrate CCIP to CCNP-SP by taking the CCIE-SPv3 written exam which is essentially in the same track and higher level?

    Re: Question regards CCIP retirement.

    Good afternoon

    these new items on CCNP SP seem great only bad thing is that people without access to an IOS XR or XE IOS do not have the opportunity to complete the labs for this.

     

     

    A few days ago this QOS, achieving CCIP, CCIE course now I'm going but I wish to present the new version.

     

     

    Anyone know any emulator IOS XR.?
