You need to pass one core exam (DCCOR 300-601) and the corresponding lab exam CCIE Data Center v3.0 to achieve your CCIE certificate

Yes. The same technology core exam will serve as the core exam for the CCNP and CCIE certification in any of the certification track like security, Collaboration or Data Center etc.
In the revamped structure, if you pass the core exam (DCCOR 300-601). You are eligible to appear for CCIE lab exam for CCIE Data Center v3.0. It means that once you clear the DCCOR 300-601 written exam, you can appear for CCIE Data Center v3.0 lab. For all the remaining CCIE certificates like Collaboration, Security, Service Provider, and Enterprise there are separate qualifying written exams and respective lab exams.

Once you clear the technology core exam (DCCOR 300-601), you can clear the CCIE lab exam within 3 years of passing the qualifying technology core exam. Plus if you can pass the corresponding technology concentration exam, you will get CCNP certificate too.

Having a CCNA or CCNP certificate is not necessary before appearing for the CCIE technology core exam and the corresponding lab exam. You can directly appear for the technology core exam and then attempt the CCIE lab after clearing the technology core exam.

All the current certificates will be valid for the full three years from the date of certification. After 24th Feb 2020, you will get the new corresponding certificate too which will have the same validity as that of your original certificate. For example, if you have an active CCNA Routing and Switching on Feb 24th, 2020, you will be granted the new CCNA certification. The important thing to note here is that when you are granted the updated certification, your certification validity will remain unchanged.

If you clear the lab exam on or before 23rd Feb 2020 or you are an active CCIE, your suspended year will be converted to an active year. For example, if your active CCIE would have been suspended beginning April 21st, 2020, you will have your status activated until April 21st, 2021.

It was a great experience to work with octa networks. Mr. Salman had a leadership role in octanetworks, inspiring and motivating his colleagues. Whenever I had a problem, there has never been a time he has left me without a solution. Everything was nicely instructed.
