CCNA certified professionals have the appropriate knowledge and skills, able to establish a connection with the remote site through a wide area network, eliminate the basic security threats, understand the requirements of wireless network access. CCNA training includes (but is not limited to) the following：IP、IGRP、OSPF、EIGRP、IPX、Serial、Apple、Talk、Frame Relay、IP RIP、VLAN RIP、Ethernet、Access Lists.
CCNP full name is: Cisco Certified Professional - CISCO Certified Network senior engineer. CISCO certified professionals say certified personnel have a wealth of network knowledge. CCNP certified professionals can install, configure, and run LAN, WAN, and dial-up access services for large enterprise networks with 100 to more than and 500 nodes.
Candidates who have access to CCNP routing and switching certifications demonstrate that they have the skills required for network engineers, network support engineers, system engineers, or network technicians. The knowledge of routing and switching protocols in this authentication will provide you with a durable knowledge base that is suitable for today's physical networks and future virtualization networks.
