Cisco CCVP Certification

CCVP Certification

Cisco Certified Voice Professional (CCVP®) validates advance knowledge and skills required to integrate into underlying network architectures. Furthermore, this certification validates a robust set of skills in implementing, operating, configuring, and troubleshooting a converged IP network.

  1. Hai,
    I want to ask that can we give CVOICE paper directly after giving CCNA R&S, or we have to give CCNA voice first then CVOICE?

    Your urgent comments will be appreciated!

    1. if you give CVOICE exam before 28/2/2011 then you will be CCNA voice certified also and you dont need to give 640-460 exam just by giving CVOICE exam you will be eligible to get the certificate of CCNA voice

  2. hi,
    recently i m certified ccna but got confused which cisco level shoul i go whether ccvp or ccnp but i heard ccvp is going to renamed as ccnp voice. so plz help which track for i should which is the best training institute for ccvp or ccnp voice in india.

    1. yes , is possible install callmanager 7.1 on vmware, but it isn´t a part number from cisco, you can do that in later version like 8.1 o 8.5 in this case cisco support this configuration in 7.x it´s not supported by cisco.

I’m from a Data IP environment so I also read 2 of the chapters from the CCNA Voice book Part 1+3 to explain PSTN terminology.

  7. Hi guyz..

    I have a question related to Certification. I have passed my QoS exam 642-642 and I am almost ready to appear in CVoice 642-436. As i am preparing for the CCVP I know I can not pass all the 5 exams till February 28, 2011.

    For example if i pass only 3 exams till Feb 28, 11 (QoS, CVoice & CIPT1) In that case do i have to appear in the new track from the start (5 exams from the new track) or I can give only 2 exams from the New Track to become CCNP Voice.

    1. You have to pass 5 exams, for each of the five exams you have two options. Either pass the old exam before it expires or pass the new exam.

  8. Check the new CCNP Voice Certificate .


    CCVP named changed to CCNP Voice.

  9. I'm looking the CVOICE CBT Nuggets, does anyone have the link or a p2p.
    I have #'s 1-7 but I can't seem to locate the rest.
    Any help would be appreciated!


  10. @ Sharique,

    1750-2V has 2 voice channels and 1750-4V has 4 voice channels.
    IMO 1750-2V should be sufficient for you and it is like 4 times cheaper than 1750-4V.


  11. I cannot find the simulator for the CCVP so anyone can please suggest me which router to buy for that. 1750 is most ideal i read it somewhere.
    But it has 1750-2V ans 1750-4v. what is the diff between these. I just need 2fxs and 2fxo ports for now

    Cisco's CCVP learning path has been changed from june-2009. Now taking the CVOICE exam will automatically earn you the ccna voice cert. Although you must have a valid CCNA cert for this.

    I was in big misunderstanding. My apologies for the trouble guys!
