Nuovo esame Cisco CCNA 200-301

La certificazione Cisco CCNA Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions Esame 200-301 è la certificazione informatica tra le più richieste al mondo e parte iniziale e fondamentale del programma di certificazioni Cisco, universalmente riconosciuto come il più accreditante nell’ambito del Mercato del Lavoro ICT. Tale certificazione attesta le abilità nell’installazione, configurazione e diagnostica di piccole e medie reti aziendali e di tutti i servizi di networking essenziali indispensabili in ogni contesto produttivo. L’esame 200-301 si rinnova sostituendo il precedente Esame 200-125 (Cisco CCNA) per abbracciare nuovi paradigmi ormai maturi per essere inseriti nei curriculum di tutti i professionisti IT. Il Software Defined Network, la Network Programmability (programmazione delle reti) e i sistemi wireless di tipo enterprise, prendono il loro posto all’interno delle competenze da testare con questo esame. La certificazione Cisco CCNA, a partire dal 2020, rimane l’unica certificazione di livello Associate a precedere i livelli più alti della piramide Cisco.


Per conseguire la Certificazione Cisco CCNA è necessario sostenere con successo il seguente esame:
Esame 200-301 CCNA Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions;

Esame CCNA 200-301 Durata 150 minuti 100-102 quesiti;
