Infrastructure solution support of Data Center networking is the main focus of this certification track, provided by Cisco. Candidates should come in with practical knowledge of two Data Center products: Nexus 2000/5000/7000 and Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches Service Modules. Experience working with them in developing architectural solutions in high performing networking environments is highly suggested.
With the Cisco Data Center Networking Infrastructure Support Specialist certification, participants will take on the role of a support agent, and can potentially work behind a desk or in the middle of the action, taking on tasks in troubleshooting, implementation, solution design, product installation, and overall environment administration. In the support field, this certification is based on problem solving, and hence, all candidates should be able to mend problems and offer ideal, sensible solutions.
Two exams must be passed to successfully earn the Cisco Data Center Networking Infrastructure Support Specialist certification. One is focused on the implementation of Network Infrastructure, and the other is centered on the implementation of Unified Fabric. Training courses can be taken for each exam, offering educational insight into test information and the intermediate skills that one must possess.
