Distinguish yourself as a leader in Data Center technologies
Achieving CCIE Data Center certification proves your skills with complex data center solutions. To earn CCIE Data Center certification, you pass two exams: a qualifying exam that covers core data center technologies, and a hands-on lab exam that covers data center networks through the entire network lifecycle, from designing and deploying to operating and optimizing.
Step 1: Pass the qualifying exam
The qualifying exam, Implementing and Operating Cisco Data Center Core Technologies, focuses on your knowledge of data center infrastructure.
The qualifying exam earns a specialist certification, so you can get recognized for your accomplishments along the way.
