What does this mean for CCIP ?
CCNP SP has replaced CCIP which has now been retired.
Cisco recognises that many candidates were in pursuit of CCIP certification where CCNA (R&S) was the pre-requisite. Candidates that have an active CCNA (R&S) certification, plus have passed at least one CCIP exam (QOS, BGP, MPLS, BGP+MPLS, ROUTE, or BSCI), will not be required to complete CCNA Service Provider to obtain CCNP Service Provider certification.
The below table will help you to identify the specific exam numbers that are valid for migration to the CCNP Service Provider certification. Cisco is honouring specific exam numbers for CCNP Service Provider certification only, even if they are beyond their 3 year expiration date. These exams will be accepted until 24th July 2015.
