The global pandemic has had an impact on every member of the Cisco Certified family. To support your certification goals, we’re extending the expiration date for all active certifications by six months (180 days) as of March 16, 2020. This covers all Cisco and DevNet Specialist, Associate, Professional, and Expert certifications as well as CCT and CCAr.
Your expiration date will automatically be extended, and there is no action required on your part. You will be able to check your personal certification manager page to validate your new expiration date within the next two weeks.
For more details and frequently asked questions, please visit our blog. We value your commitment to Cisco certifications during this challenging and unprecedented time.
A very exciting first day with swags, Cisco Champion giffs, and do networking with really nice people about new trends and challenges in the industry.
TECCCDE-3005 CCDE:The Cisco Certified Design Expert
I was really looking forward to have the session CCDE: The Cisco Certified Design Expert [TECCCDE-3005], and start move from a “How to do it” to “Why to do it” mindset shift. We covered the basic foundations for an Architect to take in consideration and Technologies on the written/lab exam.
We finished the session with a small demo about how the exam is built, and graded.
It was awesome to meet all the team and have some chat. I would like to say thank you to Russ White, Architect, Elaine Lopes,Yuri Lukin,Tom Whaley

Thanks to spend your time reading this post on the first day of the new year.
The 2017 was a busy year regards projects and a new area i’ve been exploring myself (Business Development), this is quite new for me but it’s going….
What i mean by Business Development? I’ve been focus only on Engineering (hands-on) which is by far what i really like to do, so i get the implementation plan and GO! Why not dive in the conversation with the customer and understand their challenges, advise what technologies are in the market that really suit them. Presenting cutting-edge technologies and advise the customer is also something i really like.
What do i have for this upcoming year? I’ve done some re-cert’s, like Juniper, VMware and Cisco.
I have do do some re-certs this year too, but i want to focus more on the CCDE than ever, so i’m starting officially today and i hope do the Written in 6 months. I will attend the Cisco Live Barcelona 2018, so i hope get good contacts to push this even further. This is the plan mentally but i know this might has to change a bit.
CCNA Cyber Ops is just around the corner :)
Happy New Year.
What is the TUN ?
The TUN is Virtual Point-to-Point network device.
TUN driver was designed as low level kernel support for
What is the TAP ?
The TAP is a Virtual Ethernet network device.
TAP driver was designed as low level kernel support for
What is the difference between TUN driver and TAP driver?
TUN works with IP frames. TAP works with Ethernet frames.
These kind of interfaces are supported in Linux
Cisco announced enhancements to CCIE/CCDE Program just on Written exam, but the big change is a Dual-Monitor at Lab exam. These enhancements will enable candidates to get knowledge of the evolving technologies that organizations are adopting such as cloud, IoT, and network programmability.
All Expert-Level certification programs will implement the following changes:
- A new section titled “Evolving Technologies” will be added to all Expert-Level written exams. Lab exams will not be affected.
- Candidates can prepare for the “Evolving Technologies” section by viewing Evolving Technologies Study Resources.
- The written exams will be recalibrated to include the “Evolving Technologies” section, which will have three subdomains and a total of five tasks for which the expected depth of knowledge will be focused on conceptual comprehension.
Evolving Technologies Domain
1.1: Compare and contrast Cloud deployment models
- Infrastructure, platform, and software services (XaaS)
- Performance and reliability
- Security and privacy
- Scalability and interoperability
1.2: Describe Cloud implementations and operations
- Automation and orchestration
- Workload mobility
- Troubleshooting and management
- OpenStack components
2. Network Programmability
2.1: Describe functional elements of network programmability (SDN) and how they interact
- Northbound vs. Southbound protocols
2.2: Describe aspects of virtualization and automation in network environments
- DevOps methodologies, tools and workflows
- Network/application function virtualization (NFV, AFV)
- Service function chaining
- Performance, availability, and scaling considerations
3. Internet of Things
3.1: Describe architectural framework and deployment considerations for Internet of Things (IoT)
- Performance, reliability and scalability
- Security and privacy
- Standards and compliance
- Environmental impacts on the network
