Cisco Certified Network Professional Voice (CCNP Voice)
The Cisco Certified Network Professional for Voice (CCNP Voice) certification validates advanced knowledge and skills required by Network Engineers in order to determine the right technology and solutions in order to architect secure Cisco Unified Communications networks. With a CCNP Voice certification, a network professional demonstrates the skills required to implement and manage network infrastructures to provide unified communications services. The CCNP Voice curriculum emphasizes Cisco Router IOS and Catalyst Switch UC features as well as techniques to optimize these technologies in a single, integrated network UC solution. In addition, CCNP Voice leverages the CCNA Voice certification as a prerequisite.
Candidates must be a CCNA Voice in good standing. To be certified as a CCNA Voice implies that the candidate has already been a CCNA in good standing, and then has taken and passed the CCNA Voice certification exam.
