The BCNE and BCNP exams were retired on 3/11/2016.  The exam that is now required to fufill the partner program requirements is the Brocade Professional IP Administrator 2016 (BPIPA). Before you take the BPIPA exam, you should take the Network Protocols and Standards Pre-assessment which is described in the requirements for Network Industry Protocols course (NIP 200).  Should you achieve an 85% or better on the Pre-assessment, that demonstrates you have mastery of industry standard protocols and are ready to take the BPIPA course (BPIPA 200). This FAQ document outlines the differences between the BCNE and the BPIPA as well as some updates around the Brocade Certification Program.
