Cisco CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure Certificering

CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure

The CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure certification is designed to leverage the skills obtained at the CCNP level. The certification covers core technology areas and validates your end-to-end lifecycle skills in complex enterprise networks from planning and design to operating and optimizing.

To earn the CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure certification you must complete two exams:

  • The qualifying exam, Implementing Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies (350-401 ENCOR), focuses on your knowledge of enterprise infrastructure including dual-stack (IPv4 and IPv6) architecture, virtualization, infrastructure, network assurance, security, and automation. 
  • The 8-hour, hands-on lab exam, CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure v1.0, covers the end-to-end lifecycle of complex enterprise networks from designing and deploying to operating and optimizing 

To achieve CCIE certification, you must take and pass your lab exam within 3 years of passing your core exam.


There are no formal prerequisites, but ideally candidates will have five to seven years’ experience of designing, deploying, operating and optimizing enterprise networking technologies and solutions.
