Becoming an expert in the field can be a difficult task, and an IT professional has to perform certain actions to achieve this goal. If you want to prove your skills with complex enterprise wireless solutions or complex enterprise infrastructure solutions, you can go for one of the CCIE Enterprise certifications, and namely CCIE Enterprise Wireless or CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure. These certificates can be obtained by passing a written test and a hands-on lab exam, which depends on your choice in validating certain skills. Thus, you will be able to show both your technical and practical knowledge in the area you need.
The certification path is developed for those individuals who want to validate their level of expertise in one of the sectors. The potential candidates should have a thorough understanding of the concepts covered in the exams they need to pass. There are no specific requirements, but it is recommended that they possess 5-7 years of both technical and practical experience. This means that the interested applicants should be able to design and deploy enterprise wireless or enterprise infrastructure technologies and solutions as well as have the skills in optimizing and operating them.
The written exam that you need to pass to proceed with one of the practical ones is known as Cisco 350-401. The test is all about Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies and their implementation. You will be given 120 minutes to deal with about 100 questions. The exam covers the following topics that you need to prepare for:
- Architecture – To deal with the questions from this domain, you need to understand the difference between various design principles that are used in an enterprise network as well as between Cloud and on-premises infrastructure deployments. Knowing about the working principles of the Cisco SD-Access solution and wired/wireless QoS concepts is important as well;
