Cisco announced, on Feb 17th, 2015, the development of new certifications: Cisco CCNA Collaboration and CCNP Collaboration. This step was a bit expected, since Cisco announced some time ago the new CCIE Collaboration track. In fact, Cisco is usually the best at forging complete and easy-to-follow certification tracks when it comes to networking careers. If you take a look at the Cisco Career Poster – which has not been updated yet with the new Collaboration path- you will see each job role with its “preferred” Cisco certification track.
These certifications validate the knowledge of the candidate to implement Cisco collaboration tools, in addition to VoIP and video devices. The need for this skill is becoming more and more valuable with the Unified Communications trend.
