CCNA Service Provider


Cisco Certified Network Associate Service Provider (CCNA SP) certification focuses of the latest advancements in Service Provider industry core networking technologies and is extremely beneficial for service provider network engineers, technicians and designers. With the ability to configure, implement, and troubleshoot baseline Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation networks, CCNA SP certified individuals deploy, maintain and improve carrier-grade network infrastructures.

Signellent covers the following topics in our CCNA SP training, IP Networks, IPv4 and IPv6 Addressing, Switched Network Technologies I, Routed Network Technology I, IP Services, Cisco Operating Systems and Platforms I, Transport Technologies, Security in the Network, Network Management.

Part 1 of this training covers the basic knowledge and skills that are necessary to support a service provider network.

CCNA Service Provider Part 2 training covers (but is not limited to) the use of these  topics: IP Network, IP NGN Architecture,  Switched Network Technologies II, Routed Network Technologies II, Cisco Operating System & Platforms II, Network Management. These topics are based on Cisco guidelines.

The Cisco SP certification is valid for 3 years. Our team of experts give individual attention and help each candidate to excel and crack the exam in the 1st attempt. Our daily schedule includes compulsory lab time to encourage candidates to get familiar with the latest technology in the market offered by Cisco.
