As we first reported to you back in July, Cisco was planning on expanding their offering of Mobile CCIE Labs to the Voice track as well. We’ve been talking with the team, and we knew this was just around the corner from being announced, but today Cisco finally made it official and announced that they have completed the necessary arrangements to bring the Voice track into the current Mobile CCIE Lab offerings.

At a brief glance, we can see that they are offering the CCIE Voice lab at the following dates and locations:

  • Seoul, South Korea — Nov 7 – 11, 2011
  • Toronto, Canada — Nov 14 – 18, 2011
  • Mexico City, Mexico –┬áJan 9 – 13, 2012
  • Buenos Aires, Argentina — Mar 5 – 9, 2012
  • Seoul, South Korea — Mar 19 – 23, 2012
  • Mexico City, Mexico — Apr 2 – 6, 2012

These mobile sites add to the permanent locations that you are already able to take the CCIE Voice lab, which include:

A few things this might mean to you –whether you are taking it at a mobile or fixed lab location– is that you can expect:

  • Not to have any more printed lab booklets in the ol’ traditional 3-ring binder, but instead can expect to have all lab materials in a digital, PDF-like format, using Cisco’s custom “Lab Delivery System’
  • Most of your exam is now being graded by Cisco custom scripted grading engine (this is a good thing as it makes for less human-grading errors – such as dialing the wrong number and marking you off on it)

Finally, a complete list of all tracks’ mobile testing locations and dates can be found here.

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.

    Could Buenos Aires date be wrong? Is it 2012 instead of 2011?
