Cisco Launches New Voice Certification

Cisco Systems, the global leader in Internetworking, has launched a new professional-level certification: the Cisco Certified Voice Professional (CCVP).

The new CCVP certification combines the operations, support and design content already covered by the company's IP telephony and voice-related Qualified Specialist certifications. 

According to Cisco, the intended audience for this certification is field engineers, systems engineers, IT professionals working in telecommunications as well as large enterprise and service providers.  As the demand for IP telephony and voip grows, there is a need for skilled professionals to handle voip deployment and other associated professional tasks. Already many individuals and organizations are showing considerable interest in voip training.

Cisco states, "The CCVP certification recognizes the increased importance placed on IT professionals of today who are responsible for integrating voice technology into underlying network architectures. Individuals who earn a CCVP certification can help create a telephony solution that is transparent, scalable, and manageable. Earning a CCVP certification validates a robust set of skills in implementing, operating, configuring, and troubleshooting a converged IP network."

In addition, sources from Cisco stated that the CCVP is "specifically designed to bridge the gap between the CCNA and CCIE Voice." 

The title consists of five exams: four existing Cisco Qualified Specialist exams, plus one new Gateway/Gatekeeper exam. The exams are:

642-642: Quality of Service (QoS) 
642-432: Cisco Voice Over IP (CVoice) voip
642-425: IP Telephony Troubleshooting (IPTT) 
642-444: Cisco IP Telephony (CIPT) 
642-452: Gateway/Gatekeeper (GW/GK) 

Candidates must hold a valid CCNA exam to earn the CCVP title. 

This will be first mid-level, professional title added to Cisco's program in recent years since Cisco Certified Security Professional (CCSP) (November 2002) and the Cisco Certified Internetwork Professional (CCIP) (June 2001).

Cisco's aim of creating this certification is also to provide skill standards and credentials for professionals who will attend to Cisco customers worldwide that use its IP communications products. Cisco is the market leader for IP phones. And with the growing interest in IP telephony, it is certainly an area that continues to generate interest and business. The increase in demand for voip deployment and voip training are pointers to this fact.

Ideas are not enough. You must be action oriented to improve your future.



Don't just think but act. You get results not only from thinking but from acting.



You have ideas. You want to achieve. You want opportunity.



But what are you still doing in your comfort zone? The comfort zone is a dangerous place.



"I wanted to", "I was going to" cannot put on a light bulb, not to talk of moving you forward.



Aren't you tired of hoping and criticizing? Stop defending status quo that locks you down.



GO on the offensive now with IT Education and Empowerment.



What is the use of ideas without action?



Start becoming the achiever you deserve to be.
