Cisco CCNP Routing & Switching update!

Are you preparing your CCNP R&S certification, it is time to speed up things if you want to take the exams before the new update. In fact, Cisco has announced the update of the CCNP R&S track to version 2.0.

You’ll always have the 3 exams (ROUTE, SWITCH, TSHOOT) but you’ll find some additional topics.

Let’s see this:

  • The 642-902 ROUTE exam will be replaced by 300-101 ROUTE exam.
  • The 642-813 SWITCH exam will be replaced by 300-115 SWITCH exam.
  • The 642-823 TSHOOT exam will be replaced by 300-135 TSHOOT exam.

Here are the new topics for every exam:

ROUTE (300-101)

  • CEF was in Switch exam, now we’ll find it in ROUTE exam ;
  • TCP operations ;
  • Configure and verify VRF lite is a new topic ;
  • DMVPN and EVPN are new topics added to ROUTE exam ;
  • And finally Cisco NetFlow.

These are the new topics that you’ll find on the ROUTE exam. Good news for you, Frame-relay is always here 🙁 !

SWITCH (300-115)

  • Describe chassis virtualization and aggregation technologies (Stackwise).

This is the only new topic in the Switch Exam. And even if you take or took the 642-813 SWITCH exam, I recommend that you take a look at Cisco Stackwise technology because it’s a very important subject.

TSHOOT (300-135)

The new topics added in the Route and Switch exam will be added in TSHOOT exam.

The last test day to pass the old exams is 29 January 2015 . You still have a lot of time to pass it!

This is all that I have for you. If you want more information about the update TOPICs, just visit the links below:
