The CCDP certification (Cisco Certified Design Profession) is Cisco's Professional-level certification designed to reflect advanced knowledge of, and experience in, network design. A CCDP certified individual should be able to design routed and switched networks involving LAN, WAN, and dial access services, applying modular design practices and making sure the whole solution responds optimally to the business and technical needs of the client.
In order to take the CCDP certification a candidate must first pass the Associate-level CCDA and CCNA certifications. Once the prerequisites have been met then the candidate must pass up to three CCDP exams.
The exams are as follows:
The Cisco's CCDP Certification Exam is considered by technology companies across the globe to be the industry standard measurement of a technician's knowledge of computer networking. Surveys indicate that those with a certification are more likely to receive higher salaries and more career opportunities than those without a certification.
Some of the benefits of Cisco CCDP Certification includes:
For companies, it brings a standardized measurement of competency, helps lower training costs and typically results in higher customer satisfaction levels because of the high skill level and professionalism of those with an CCDP certification. In fact, many technology companies such as Microsoft, HP, CompTIA, CompuCom and Ricoh mandate their service technicians to be Cisco CCDP certified.
I find that this study material is helpful in studying for the 642-813 exam,Brendon Kim
Best resource so far i have ever come across in Cisco Networking, highly based on Designing and Implementing Cisco modern network. Well written style and indepth explanation, not only usefull for the CCNP exams but for real world networking design and deployment. Great guide for Modern Cisco Network Design and Deployment !!!!!S.

This kit is a must for anyone interested in more than just what routing protocols do and how to configure them. This kit gives the reader a real understanding of how IGPs function and how Cisco routers process them. After reading this you will have a real understanding of routing, far beyond just how to configure and implement routing protocols. This not only covers router configuration, but routing theory, subsystems, data structures, event processing, input processing, algorithms, and more. This is not just another guide on routing protocols! After reading this kit, you will understand routing as only a few people do.Jink Koreman
