Expertise in Cisco IOS XR platforms can be obtained with the Cisco IOS XR Specialist certification. A passing score on the 644-906 Implementing and Maintaining Cisco Technologies Using IOS XR examination is the only requirement to earn this certification. Although there are no prerequisites, candidates are recommended to be at an advanced or professional certification level.
A training course can be taken that goes hand-in-hand with the exam. Numerous study documents, including configuration and reference guides, can also be downloaded from the Cisco website. These preparation materials should back up the skills and knowledge that are obtained in a hands-on networking environment. The certification program offers a form of skill validation and should not be used as an educational tool. Previous work experience with the associated products is necessary.
The Cisco IOS XR Specialist certification is ideal for network engineers who have experience with service provider and enterprise networks. It will validate the skills needed to install, maintain and administer IOS XR platform technologies, such as the CRS, XR12000 and ASR9000. As these technologies become more prevalent in network infrastructures, this certification will promote you as an individual who is capable of handling the platforms and related job tasks.
