Course Objectives

Cisco has responded to the challenge in the internetworking technology with the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) Program.

TThis is a high-level certification program designed to identify and serve the best of the internetworking experts and to improve your hands-on skills. The CCIE certification is currently the most significant certification in the industry. 

The CCIE Voice Lab Boot Camp consists of a set of practice exercises covering all protocols tested in the CCIE lab exam. They are aimed at engineers preparing for the CCIE lab exam who already understand the theory of the protocols being tested and wish to practice implementing them in CCIE Lab style scenarios.

After completing this boot camp, delegates will be in a position to identify whether they are ready to sit the eight-hour lab exam which will test your ability to get the VoIP solution operating in a timed test situation.You must pass the lab within three years of passing the written to achieve certification. Your first lab attempt must be made within 18 months

A first class Cisco instructor will conduct the lab, which is equipped with Cisco routers, switches and miscellaneous networking equipment.
The CCIE Voice Lab Boot Camp is not a training session, but is designed for the purpose of practicing for the lab portion of the CCIE exam. Delegates should be prepared to work beyond the usual classroom hours.
Candidates will be expected to work at their own pace on the topics they feel they need the most practice on. It is not anticipated that all labs can be completed in the time provided; however complete solutions and associated comments will be provided for all exercises!
