 Hi,
I'm planning to get my Cisco professional certificate. My first intention
was to take CCNP, but after some thinking I deicide to take CCVP. If I
understood correctly CCVP is relatively new Cisco certificate, so I wonder
which one has more opportunities to get better job. In another words, I
think that IP communication (VoIP) is starting to evolve faster than before.
So, I'm right or not. I think that there are much more CCNP people around
than CCVP. Should I take CCVP or CCNP? And is the level of knowledge
provided by CCNA good enough to understand IPT and VoIP? Cause, I'm new at
voice field.

I'm tempted by the CCVP but you don't seem to get a good grounding in the
basics of routing & switching which I would assume most clients would want
you to know, maybe i'm wrong on that

So, what if I take CCVP first and then CCNP?  What do you think about
that?

I'd say you're not afraid of a challenge!




Re: CCNP or CCVP?


No, seriously. CCNP  interest me more, but I think that CCVP offers
more job  opportunities at the moment.

I am one test away from my CCVP, and I have had my CCNP for about 5 years.

There are no foundational elements from the CCNA that apply to the CCVP, you
will be, in essence, starting from scratch.

So, what studying materials have you used? I noticed that Sybex doesn't
have anything for CCVP? The only thing I found are some Cisco
materials.... Are thouse exams you took more difficult than CCNP?

I used CIPT, VoIP, IPTT and QOS all from CiscoPress.

For GW/GK, I am writing my own book.

The tests are not 'harder' just different.
