CCIE Service Provider Certification v5.0 is the highest and most prestigious certification from Cisco. It ranks No. 1 in the 10 Most Difficult IT Certifications list, and is highly-valued worldwide. A CCIE certified individual is an elite title in the field of network engineering, proving their mastery in their domain of Cisco networking. The CCIE Service Provider Certified experts have the knowledge and skills required to architect, engineer, implement, troubleshoot, and support complex service provider technologies, using the latest methods including automation and programmability. The quality of the program, the testing methods, and the relevance of this certification enhances its value. At IP Rulers , the classes are facilitated by CCIE Service Provider certified and experienced instructors, and students will be exposed to the latest equipments. With grouped as well as one-to-one classes and online tutorials that could be scheduled for weekdays or weekends in accordance to the students’ choice, IP Rulers is fast becoming a leading name in Dubai in providing highly valued Cisco Certificates with a 100% pass rate on the first attempt.

Course Details

CCIE Service Provider v5.0 certification is the new avatar of core knowledge and practical skills in the management of the most complex scenarios of Service Provider network lifecycle (Designing, Deploying, Operating & Optimizing). IP Rulers in Dubai provide CCIE Service Provider v5.0 training just as per the course described by the Cisco Service Provider Certification blueprint.

The new method adapted for CCIE Exam is given below, which have vital parts known as Design, Deploy, Operate & Optimize.

The CCIE Service Provider certification is achieved with two exams:


350-501 SPCOR: Implementing and Operating Cisco Service Provider Network Core Technologies

The 120-minute, Implementing and Operating Cisco Security Core Technologies v1.0 (SPCOR 350-501) exam is associated with the CCNP Service Provider, Cisco Certified Specialist (with core subject Service Provider), and CCIE Service Provider Certifications. It tests a candidate’s knowledge of implementing core service provider network technologies including core architecture, services, networking, automation, quality of services, security, and network assurance. Clearing this exam gives a Specialist Certification, so as to recognize all accomplishments of the candidate.


CCIE Service Provider v5.0 Lab Exam

The 8-hour Cisco CCIE Service Provider (v5.0) Practical Exam is a hands-on exam that requires a candidate to plan, design, implement, operate, and optimize dual stack solutions (IPv4 and IPv6) of complex service provider networks.

CCIE Lab Exam summary

CCIE SP lab exam has two modules. Module 1 will be a 3-hour, scenario-based session, which will discuss the Design part. Module 2 will be a 5-hour session to discuss Deploy, Operate & Optimize parts of the exam.

CCIE Exam Score Evaluation :

Candidates who score higher than the aggregated pass score of both modules and also higher than the minimum score set on each individual module, clear the exam.
