HP currently offers two certification exams for IT professionals seeking to validate their wireless network implementation abilities:
- HP0-Y43 – Implementing HP Network Infrastructure Solutions
- HP0-Y44 – Implementing and Troubleshooting HP Wireless Networks
Completing either of these exams documents you possess a key skill set required of wireless network implementation specialists. Successfully completing both exams actually earns you a formal HP certification as an Accredited Solutions Expert as a Wireless Networks Implementer.
The HP0-Y43 exam requires you to demonstrate your knowledge and skills in working with mid-level switching and routing, as well as OSPF. Multicast routing and forwarding are also among the core knowledge requirements for passing the HP0-Y43 exam, as is the ability to complete wireless networking implementation projects that include E and A series HP products, including appropriate security technologies.
The HP0-Y44 exam requires the demonstration of your ability to configure wireless services utilizing HP controller, as well as your understanding of HP MSM wireless technologies and products.
Successfully undertaking the HP0-Y43 or HP0-Y44 exam requires you attain hands on experience with the products and technologies appropriate for the exam you intend to take. HP training courses offered in on-site and online formats include lab work that will provide you with the hands on experience you might otherwise lack. In addition to these resources, you’ll want to consider utilizing other tools and materials in the course of your HP certification exam prep activities, including practice cert tests, tutorials and other self study materials like those made available by TestsLive.com, for example.
