CCNP Service Provider Course overview

Octa Networks, India’s number one and best Cisco training center located in Mumbai, offers onsite and online CCNP Service Provider training to candidates worldwide.  We are one of the pioneers in India providing high-end quality Service Provider Training and Boot camps in our 24x7 physical lab setup. Our CCNP Service Provider Racks are fully equipped with physical devices as per latest Cisco CCNP Collab exam blueprints.

CCNP Service Provider Certification is a professional level certification for the student looking to enhance their skills and work independently on complex Service Provider networks. After completion of CCNP SP Training, the candidate will have the ability to plan, implement, verify and troubleshoot service provider networks. CCNP aspirants work collaboratively and closely with Subject Matter Experts for data, security, wireless, and video domain.

Our modular CCNP Service Provider training programs aimed at catering to various technological needs and demands of the individuals and the industry. We have successfully helped a large number of students to achieve their Cisco certification goals in the last 8 years. Octa Networks means guaranteed technical training which ultimately leads to Cisco certifications.

On 24th Feb 2020, Cisco rebooted the certification program by launching new CCNP Service Provider Certification which replaced the old CCNP Service Provider program. The last date for availing expired/old CCNP Service Provider examinations was 23rd Feb 2020. Newly revamped CCNP Service Provider program took effect from 24th Feb 2020.

Expired CCNP Service Provider program had the following examinations:

  • 642-883 - Deploying Cisco Service Provider Network Routing (SPROUTE)
  • 642-885 - Deploying Cisco Service Provider Advanced Routing (SPADVROUTE)
  • 642-887 - Implementing Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Core Network Services (SPCORE)
  • 642-889 - Implementing Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Edge Network Services (SPEDGE)

One of the main objectives of CCNP SP revamp is to move away from the ‘One Size Fits All’ approach to a modular approach wherein to achieve new CCNP SP certification, 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 in the respective track. Besides the CCNP Service Provider, core exam also acts as qualifying criteria for attempting the CCIE Service Provider lab exam.

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

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

CCNP Service Provider Core exam:

  • 350-501 - Implementing and Operating Cisco Service Provider Network Core Technologies (SPCOR)

CCNP Service Provider Concentration exam:

  • 300-510 - Implementing Cisco Service Provider Advanced Routing Solutions (SPRI)
  • 300-515 - Implementing Cisco Service Provider VPN Services (SPVI)
  • 300-535 - Implementing Automation for Cisco Service Provider Solutions (SPAUI)

In a nutshell, Cisco has rebooted the CCNP Service Provider Course to cover the most relevant technologies and business needs by designing a qualifying core exam that focuses on your knowledge of service provider infrastructure including core architecture, services, networking, Automation, quality of service, security and network assurance. Their job role expects them to have these advanced service provider technological skills like advanced routing, VPN services, and Automation.

Octa Networks is providing CCNP Service Provider Bootcamp and focused training facilities across India and abroad. We are proud of our track record of guiding and coaching our students to achieve their CCNP Service Provider certifications. We provide the Best CCNP Service Provider Training in Mumbai. We will strive to keep up the good work we are doing as the best CCNP training institute in India.
