Hi Everyone,

As you have probably noticed, OER (or PfR for PerFormance Routing as they call it now) is the part of the new CCIE RS blueprint, which becomes effective as of October 2009. In short, OER is the technology that enables selecting a best exit/entry point in the network for various classes of traffic (e.g. VoIP, HTTP, streaming video and so on) based on traffic performance metrics. We are already working on the new updates, and now presenting you with a free sample of our IEWB-RS VOL1 product (technology-focused labs). The sample covers all five phases of OER, including OER profiling, measuring, policy application, control and verification. You can download the sample here VOL1 OER Sample along with the initial configuration files suited for Rack1 of our RS topology OER Initial Configuration. All scenarios are designed to be working on existing racks running IOS version 12.4. Advanced features introduced in 12.4T are to be covered in further VOL1 updates. Even if you are not interested in OER, you may still want to download the sample just to get the feeling of VOL1 tasks and upcoming new updates.

Happy studying!

    Awesome!!! you guys are the best….look forward for more updates. Even if I pass in July I will still go through the new material to make sure im up to date.

  2. Jim says:

    Excellent work Petr! But are you the only one covering the updates of RS and SC ? I hope not, but it sure looks that way. You should get some help or else we’ll wait a long time until we get all the updates(especially the security ones)

    Very appreciate your post on security volume I/II.As my scheduled date of lab is Mid of July, I am worrying that if I can finish most Volume II lab by that time? I see no volume II lab posted during whole month of May.
    Really thankful to your material. Also really hope you can reply our question!

    Top man – looks like a really interesting feature too -

    P.S Noticed a couple of typos on the diagram on pg 14 where ‘lean’ should be ‘learn’

  5. Daisuke says:

    Thanks for giving such a good material!

    Could I ask a question?

    On pg 53, there is a description of “oer-map 10″, but I do not understand this command.

    Is this clause right?

    And if it is right, why shold it be set mode route observe?(why is it not mode route control?)

    P.S I am Japanese, so please forgive my bad English.
