We are pleased to announce that many of our CCIE Voice Products have now been updated.

Here is a quick summary of both the updated and new products:
Voice Deep Dives
CCIE Voice Volume I Workbook
CCIE Voice Advanced Technologies Class (live online class is in two weeks, CoD available the following week)

Jump past the break to see more details on each of these, as well as an exhaustive outline of the completely rewritten CCIE Voice Volume I Workbook.

Voice Deep Dives:

Completed as far as the CCIE Voice track is concerned. More specifically, what we mean is that since the conceptual body of work that will be enveloped in what is currently known as the ‘Voice Deep Dives’ will continue to grow – not only into the UC v8.5 realm for the CCNA Voice & CCNP Voice (very soon), but also beyond that to include detailed helpful learning resources for the general in-house and consulting community – then the Voice Deep Dives will never truly be a ‘finished’ work per se, but rather one that becomes an ongoing collective of knowledge and learning resources. However, as for all the topics that are covered by the current CCIE Voice lab exam v3 blueprint, the Voice Deep Dives now contain a complete curriculum of necessary knowledge.

Voice Deep Dives now contain 21 Modules with 115 hours of video lecture and detailed step-by-step demonstration of all necessary configuration, verification testing, and debugging/traces, with everything you need to know to pass the CCIE Voice lab exam.

These modules can each be purchased separately, or a complete collection of both the current and growing set can be obtained (along with thousands of hours of other CCIE-level video) by simply choosing a monthly subscription to INE’s new All Access Pass.

CCIE Voice Volume I Workbook:

Designed specifically as a subcomponent of the Voice Deep Dives, the 100% newly written CCIE Voice Volume I Workbook contains over 175 individual tasks with nearly 100 hours of video-based walk-through demonstration of solutions, verification and testing. Those who have purchased this workbook in the past already have this new version available in your members area.

About Mark Snow, CCIE #14073:

Mark Snow has been actively working with data and traditional telephony as a Network Consulting Engineer since 1995, and has been working with Cisco Call Manager and voice-over technology since 1998. Mark has been actively teaching and developing content for the CCIE Voice track since 2005, and the Security track since 2007. Mark's story with both data and voice technology started out quite young, as he began learning around the age of five from his father who was a patented inventor and a research scientist at AT&T Bell Laboratories. Mark started out on Unix System V and basic analog telephony, and went on from there to large data networking projects with technologies such as Banyan Vines, IPX and of course IP, and large phone systems such as Nortel 61c, Tadiran Coral, Avaya Definity and of course Cisco Unified Communications Manager in both enterprise and 911 PSAP environments across the US and internationally. Mark is also an accomplished pilot and punched his ticket in 2001. When Mark isn't learning, labing, consulting or teaching, he can be found either piloting or possibly jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, hanging off a rock somewhere or else skiing out west. He also might just be enjoying a quiet day at the beach with his wife and two wonderful young kids, Ryleigh and Judah.

    Sounds great, Mark! Looking forward to the new Advanced Technologies Class when it is available as CoD. I just got the All Access Pass with Voice Workbooks – started working through the Deep Dives.

    nice

    Thanks

    Mark,

    Its really great jobs, now its done!

  4. laylow says:

    I am wondering whats the difference between the ATC and the Deep Dives. I purchased the self-paced Voice ATC already. Just wondering if there would be any need to purchase the deep dives as well. Any major difference between the two products???

    • The Deep Dives are much more in-depth than the ATC. If you subscribe to the All Access Pass then you’ll get access to both the ATC and the Deep Dive series

    • Also @laylow, to add to what BM very accurately stated, I am in the middle (quite literally) of re-recording the live online Voice ATC class. So if you have purchased the Voice ATC classes, look for some new material coming to your members area in the way of on-demand recordings very soon!

      BTW, to give you an idea of how much more in-depth the Deep Dive series is – based on where we are at with the ATC class today (about 37 hours), I expect we will have roughly 60 hours for the Voice ATC at completion, and the finished Voice Deep Dive product has 115 hours of video lecture, demo configuration and troubleshooting and whiteboarding.
