Cisco has redesigned its Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification to reflect new skills required of security, voice, and wireless experts. In addition to the curriculum changes for its associate-level CCNA certification, Cisco also has rebranded the certification to “CCNA Routing and Switching.”

 

In addition to Routing and Switching, new CCNA designations in the upgraded certification program also include CCNA Voice, CCNA Security, CCNA Wireless, CCNA SP Operations and CCDA.  The updates include comprehensive troubleshooting, technologies such as IPv6, and updated software on Cisco routers and switches.

 

The new exams and training will be available starting March 26, 2013.

 

Beginning October 1, 2013, the 640-816 ICND2 exam will be replaced by  200-101 ICND2 , the 640-822 ICND1 by 100-101 ICND1, and the 640-802 CCNA exam will be replaced by  200-120 CCNA. For more details, see:

Certifications play a vital role in determining an individual’s salary. 2013 is looking to be a great year for IT professionals. The nature of IT is to stay ahead of the curve in all things related to technology. Today, the expectation is that IT professionals will have a measure of capability, if not proficiency, in everything from wireless networking and security to mobile app development and maintaining a cloud-based infrastructure. Extending your expertise into new areas demonstrates that as an IT professional, you can manage the complex changes taking place today in technology and that you are up to the challenge.


Here, we take a look at few certifications with the highest earning potential.


1. Project Management Professional (PMP):

The PMI-PMP certification is an industry recognized vendor neutral credential. The PMI PMP Certification (Project Management Professional) is one of the most popular certifications today. The PMP exam recognizes demonstrated knowledge and skill in leading and directing project teams and in delivering project results within the constraints of schedule, budget, and resources. PMP PMI’s certification provides experienced individuals the skills and abilities to manage large projects with critical paths, critical dates, available resources, and track the progress of the project from inception to completion, on time without cost overruns.


2. Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP):

The CISSP certification is an advanced-level certification specially meant for IT security professionals who have a minimum of five years of professional experience (effective Jan 1st 2012) in the field of information security. The prerequisite for the ISC2 CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional) certifications is five years of professional work experience as an IT professional, but in a different domain. The certification is proof of a person’s competence in defining the architecture, design, management and security of business environments.


3. Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA):

The CCNA certification is the novice certification, i.e., the entry level. It is a pre-requisite for all the advanced level Cisco certifications such as CCNP and CCIE.  It validates the skills of networking professionals to install, configure and troubleshoot routed and switched networks. CCNA Certified professionals are capable of implementing and verifying connections to remote sites in a WAN. They also have basic knowledge on security issues, Wireless networking and performance-based skills.

You can choose either of the two paths for becoming CCNA:


4. Certified Wireless Network Administrator (CWNA):

The Certified Wireless Network Administrator (CWNA) certification is considered the foundation-level enterprise Wi-Fi certification for the Certified Wireless Network Professional program and it also acts as a gateway to more senior credentials. As an increasing number of users view wireless connectivity as basic infrastructure and not as an extra bonus, the need for wireless management capability will continue to grow.  It is believed that the candidates should have a basic understanding and fundamental knowledge of information technology. The Certified Wireless Networking Administration certification exam is a standalone certification from CWNP with the exam code PW0-104. Its upgraded version is PW0-105.


5.  Strata Green IT:

The CompTIA‘s Strata Green IT certificate is designed to enhance an IT professional’s experience, knowledge, and existing IT credentials to incorporate emerging technologies shaping the global green IT industry today. IT professionals that pass the Strata Green IT exam validate that they have the aptitude needed to effectively implement and measure Green IT programs and investments.

The certification requires you to pass only one exam:

Q. What is the pre-requisite for taking the test Cisco 640-822?

A. The ICND1 (640-822) exam is the only requirement for achieving the latest entry-level CCENT certification from Cisco. It is also one of the two exams for achieving the CCNA certification. You now have to pass exams 640-822 and 640-816 if you opt for the two exams for your CCNA certification. The exam tests your ability to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small branch office network. There are no specific prerequisites for the ICND1 (640-822) test, and it is appropriate for you if you have knowledge in networking fundamentals, basic security and wireless concepts, routing and switching fundamentals, the TCP/IP and OSI models, IP addressing, WAN technologies, implementing NAT and DHCP, configuring simple networks, etc. This test is suitable for you if you want to work as a Network administrator, System Analyst or Network Support Professional.

Describe how a network works

    • A successful PINGing of a host exhibits the connectivity through layers 1, 2, and 3 of an OSI network model.
    • Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) and Telnet are application layer protocols of the Internet protocol (IP) suite.
    • Cable modem is used to connect a CATV cable to a computer/router through an Ethernet interface.
    • A Wireless Access Point (WAP) is used to connect wireless hosts to a wired LAN.
    • The Gigabit Ethernet (1000Base-LX) standard supports a maximum cable length of 5000 meters.
    • The 1000Base-LX/SX Ethernet types use fiber cables.
    • The Session layer of the OSI model manages communication between communication entities in a network.
    • The Session layer of the OSI model provides dialog management and assists the upper layers in connecting to services on the network.
