CCNP Enterprise Certification & Training Institute

One of the pioneers in the CCNP Enterprise Training in India, Octa Networks is providing CCNP Enterprise Training Boot camps in Mumbai INDIA. They have successfully helped a large number of students to achieve their Cisco certification goals in the last 6-7 years. Octa Networks means guaranteed technical training which ultimately leads to Cisco certifications.

CISCO’s modular CCNP Enterprise training programs aimed at catering to various technological needs and demands of the individuals and the industry.

On 24th Feb 2020, CISCO is REBOOTING the Certification program by launching CCNP Enterprise Certification which will replace the existing CCNP R&S and CCNP Wireless program and CCDP certifications. Current CCNP examinations can be availed till 23rd Feb 2020. Newly revamped CCNP program takes effect from 24th Feb 2020.

Current CCNP R&S program had the following examinations:

  • 300-101 ROUTE - Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE)
  • 300-115 SWITCH - Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks (SWITCH)
  • 300-135 TSHOOT - Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP Networks (TSHOOT).

Current CCNP Wireless program had the following examinations:

  • 300-360 WIDESIGN - Designing Cisco Wireless Enterprise Networks (WIDESIGN)
  • 300-365 WIDEPLOY - Deploying Cisco Wireless Enterprise Networks (WIDEPLOY)
  • 300-370 WITSHOOT - Troubleshooting Cisco Wireless Enterprise Networks (WITSHOOT)
  • 300-375 WISECURE - Securing Cisco Wireless Enterprise Networks (WISECURE)

One of the main objectives of CCNP revamp is to move away from the ‘One Size Fits All’ approach to a modular approach wherein to achieve new CCNP certification in any track, the candidate will not have to pass more than 2 exams. Any additional specializations are most welcome but the candidate needs to pass a core exam and one of the concentration exam options available on the specific track. Besides the CCNP core exam also acts as qualifying criteria for attempting CCIE lab exams in a particular track.

CCNA is no longer a qualifying criterion for attempting CCNP. Candidates can straight away appear for CCNP examinations provided they have the necessary knowledge and grasp of the practical application of the know-how.

To earn CCNP certification, candidates need to pass the core exam which covers core enterprise technology and one concentration exam of his/her choice based on his/her technical area of focus or job role requirement. 

Please find the details of the CCNP Enterprise Syllabus contents:

CCNP Enterprise Core exam details are –

  • 300-401 ENCOR – Implementing and Operating Cisco Enterprise Core Technologies ENCOR

CCNP Enterprise Concentration exam details are –

  • 300-410 ENARSI - Implementing Cisco Enterprise Advanced Routing and Services (ENARSI)
  • 300-415 ENSDWI - Implementing Cisco SD-WAN Solutions (SDWAN300)
  • 300-420 ENSLD - Designing Cisco Enterprise Networks (ENSLD)
  • 300-425 ENWLSD - Designing Cisco Enterprise Wireless Networks (ENWLSD)
  • 300-430 ENWLSI - Implementing Cisco Enterprise Wireless Networks (ENWLSI)
  • 300-435 ENAUTO - Implementing Automation for Cisco Enterprise Solutions (ENAUI)

In a nutshell, Cisco is rebooting the CCNP Enterprise course to cover the most relevant technologies and business needs by designing a qualifying core exam which covers technologies including Automation and Programmability while the concentration exam will validate emerging and industry-specific topics such as network design, SD-WAN, Wireless, and automation.

In the revamped structure, if you pass core exam and one concentration exam in the same technology track, you can achieve your CCNP certification. CCNP has five tracks as of now (Enterprise, Data Center, Service Provider, Security and Collaboration). Each track has one specific core exam and a number of concentration exam choices. CCNP Enterprise has 6 concentration exam options. CCNP Collaboration has 4 concentration exam choices. CCNP Security has 6 concentration exam options. CCNP Data Center has 5 concentration exam options. CCNP Service Provider has 3 concentration exam options.

Once you clear the technology core exam, you can clear the CCNP exam within 3 years of passing the qualifying technology core exam to get the CCNP certificate too.

All the current certificates will be valid for the full three years from the date of certification. If you achieve CCNP certification before 23rd Feb 2020, you will get the three new corresponding certificates which will have the same validity as that of your original certificate. You will get CCNP Enterprise certificate and two more certificates. These two certificates are Cisco Certified Specialist – Enterprise Core and Cisco Certified Specialist – Enterprise Advanced Infrastructure Implementation.

If your CCNP is incomplete on or before 23rd Feb 2020, following are the migration scenarios. Current CCNP certification consists of three exams ROUTE (300-101), SWITCH (300-115) and TSHOOT (300-135).

If you have cleared ROUTE (300-101) only, then you need to clear new Core exam (300-401 ENCOR) and one of the concentration exams out of 6 available choices. Similarly if you have cleared SWITCH (300-115) only then also you need to clear new Core exam (300-401 ENCOR) and one of the concentration exams out of 6 available choices. If you have cleared TSHOOT (300-135) only, you will receive Cisco Certified Specialist – Enterprise Advanced Infrastructure Implementation. With TSHOOT (300-135), you will need to clear 300-401 ENCOR exam to achieve CCNP Enterprise certification.

If you have cleared ROUTE (300-101) and SWITCH (300-115), then you will receive Cisco Certified Specialist – Enterprise Core. You will need to clear one of the concentration exams to receive CCNP Enterprise certificate.

If you have cleared combination of ROUTE (300-101) plus TSHOOT (300-135) or SWITCH (300-115) plus TSHOOT (300-135) or just TSHOOT (300-135) then you will receive Cisco Certified Specialist – Enterprise Advanced Infrastructure Implementation and you will have to clear 300-401 (ENCOR) to receive CCNP Enterprise certification.

If you have cleared ROUTE (300-101) and SWITCH (300-115), you will receive Cisco Certified Specialist – Enterprise Core and will need to clear any of the 6 concentration exams to receive CCNP Enterprise certificate.
