Cisco recently announced its highest level of certification – the Cisco Certified Architect (CCA). This prestigious credential recognizes the architectural expertise of network designers who can support the increasingly complex networks of global organizations and effectively translate business strategies into evolutionary technical strategies. CCAs are also expected to advocate Cisco network architectures.
There is no formal training for the CCA. Candidates who want to to attain their Cisco Certified Architect certification must meet before an in-person board made of Cisco-appointed exam committee members during which the candidate defends their proposed network solution.
The pre-requisite for a CCA must also be certified in Cisco Certified Design (CCDE) .
Cisco Certified Architects are expected to:
- Lead creation and evolution of architecture
- Analyze technology and industry market trends
- Establish governing principles for networks
- Selection of technology and products
- Identification of organization resource needs
- Lead the development of communication and education plan for network architecture
