Well well well, I guess its my turn to announcement that I PASSED my CCIE Voice Lab, yes it’s late but I will never forget to write back to the people who helped me to the success. INE was the door that I knocked to guide me to the success and glory, and yes they did a great job. I passed my CCIE Voice lab and I got my number, feeling was very good. It took me only 24 hours to get my salary doubled! Yes I jumped to six digits salary in less than 24 hours of passing my CCIE Voice!

I have to admit, Mark Snow’s Voice ATC and Deep Dives are not only a MUST to pass the exam, but they are the way to make me a real expert out in the field. Believe it or not, I use his Deep Dives & ATC to help me at work when I deploy UC projects.

A word for UC engineers: This training is a must if you wanna become a successful sharp engineer.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank INE and all internal staff, the Brians and especial thanks to Mark Snow. INE says: “Experts at Make Me an Expert” that is True.

No I am not going away! I just purchased the AAP, It is a must if you want to pass the CCIE Lab and to be a real expert in the field. I just moved my direction to the INE’s R&S which is all covered by AAP.

Enough for now, time to go to start watching Brian McGahan’s ATC for R&S!

Mutasem (Monty) Bashkami – CCIE Voice# 26926

Our sincere congratulations go out to Monty, and we can’t wait to help him attain his CCIE R&S as well!
Monty also told us that his brother just passed the CCIE R&S using INE’s materials, and is now on his way to studying for the CCIE Voice, and we can’t wait to help him attain his goal as well.

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.
