    Does this mean (the fact that you are starting on Volume 2) that Volume 1 v5 is completely finished, because I would like to get a new print version if 5.0 Volume 1 is complete.

  2. No, they are both being release concurrently.

    Are you going to offer this session on-demand? I don’t live in the US; 9:30am PST is a bit late for me.

    Hi Brians

    Any soecific reason for not including the WAN section in demo lab 1 that u have posted .

    Things liiked quite good to me ( specially 2 diagrams merged in one ) but dodnt understood why u provided WAN (FR etc) preconfigured


  5. To Gaurav Madan:

    Our current lab structure directly reflects the latest lab blueprint:

    As you can see, Frame-Relay is now under “Bridging & Switching” sections. The latest tendency is to preconfigure the basic settings (IP addressing, some FR, basic IGP/BGP) for candidates and let them focus on more advanced topics. Besides, Frame-Relay is losing its importance nowadays.

    You will not see FR being complelety removed from our labs, of course. Just the number of tasks will be reduced, most likely the basic configs. You should still expect to see some advanced FR scenarios, such as running OSPF/multicast over FR (next-hop issues, etc) and troubleshooting Frame-Relay.

    Total Confusion. So is lab 10 Meet-Up free or not?
    Is it on Thursday the 18th at 9am (per your post) or Friday the 19th (per the schedule)?

  7. Anas says:


    so when you expect the reset parts of the Volume 1 Version 5 (like BGP, multixast, IPv6) will be available?
