Cisco’s Voice & Video certification becomes Collaboration

Recently i achieved my CCNA Voice certification, only a few days before Cisco announced it will be merging their CCNA Voice and CCNA Video into the new CCNA Collaboration.

The new Collaboration certification consists out of two exams, basicly the old ICOMM and VIVND exams renumbered. That makes it easier to update your certification to the brand new Collaboration certification.
If you have only one of the two exams there is the CCNA Collaboration Exam Migration Tool.

This means for me, with only the ICOMM 640-461, i have to achieve the old VIVND (200-001) exam before august 15th or i can do the new CIVND (210-065) exam.

A new task has been created on my certification roadmap. Soon i also will explain what this means for the CCNP Voice i am/was pursuing…

CCNA Voice to Collab

Extending the library, books for #CCDA and #CCNP Voice (#Cisco)

While i was looking for some books for my Personal Education Program i found that CiscoPress and Pearson IT Certifications had each a useful eBook Deal of the Day.

With CiscoPress i bought the book Implementing Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Part 1 (CIPT1) Foundation Learning Guideicon for only $ 9.99. And at the Pearson IT Certification website i bought Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions (DESGN) Foundation Learning Guideicon.

The first book is for my CCDA track, the second for the CCNP Voice track that i pursue.
