SPEDGE Training

SPEDGE (Implementing Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Edge Network Services) is a five-day training course that will prepare students for the SPEDGE exam required for the new CCNP-SP Certification. It is the fourth of four CCNP Service Provider (CCNP-SP) courses. The course is designed to provide service provider professionals with information on the use of service provider VPN solutions. The goal is to train professionals to enable service provider point of presence to provide Layer 2 and Layer 3 virtual private networks (VPNs). The SPEDGE training reinforces the instruction by providing students with hands-on labs to ensure that they thoroughly understand how to implement VPNs within their networks.

The course also includes classroom activities with remote labs that are useful to gain practical skills on deploying Cisco IOS or IOS XE and Cisco IOS XR features to operate and support the service provider network.
