When we ask students “what are your weakest areas” or “what are your biggest areas of concern” for the CCIE Lab Exam, we typically always here non-core topics like Multicast, Security, QoS, BGP, etc. As such, INE has responded with a series of bootcamps focused on these disciplines.

The IPv4/IPv6 Multicast 3-Day live, online bootcamp, and the associated Class On-Demand version seeks to address the often confounding subject of Multicast. Detailed coverage of Multicast topics for the following certifications is provided:

    Thanks… Either way it should be good – been waiting a while for something like this, although I think I will catch it in it’s recorded version…

    Thought I finally had this topic sorted until Brian hit us with some brain melting stuff in Chicago and it was all back to square one :)
