Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) - Service Provider-Implementing Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Edge Network Service (SPEDGE)


SPEDGE Implementing Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Edge Network Services tests a candidate's knowledge of service provider VPN solutions through enabling point of presence to provide Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPNs. This exam covers the Cisco IOS, IOS XE and IOS XR operating systems. Candidates can prepare for this exam by taking the Implementing Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Edge Network Services (SPEDGE) course.
