Graded R&S CCIE troubleshooting lab 3 has been released. You’ll find that this lab has detailed walk-through breakdowns with me explaining how the fault/faults were discovered along with the solution. Additional I discuss other possible solutions and explain why a particular solution is used.

After we released the first two labs a few months back and got the feedback from the users we know that this is the future of INE’s Routing and Switching CCIE labs going forward. I’m going to start writing new labs that focus on a mix of configuration and troubleshooting along with labs that focus on a particular technology (i.e. IPv6 multicast lab, BGP lab, OSPFv2 lab, etc) so not only will they help you with the troubleshooting section but also the configuration section.

We will be pushing a new update out sometime this month that will allow you to compare your command output right alongside the solutions command output. This way if you missed a ticket you can go back and look at exactly why your solution wasn’t valid.

Lastly I’ve lowered the pricing of the TS graded labs to 30 tokens. This is more in line with the rest of the rack pricing. If you have any questions concerning these new TS labs or any INE product feel free to email me directly at

For those who are unfamiliar with the new Troubleshooting labs you can book them for 30 tokens in your members site account.

    Hello Brian, I went through the vSeminar for Troubleshooting it was amazing, Thank you.

    Just wanted to clear something, i never had graded labs, by booking graded labs, are we gonna have the TS lab 3 or we have to purchase the lab separately?


  10. Manny says:

    Also, Do you guys have any plan to lower SP rack rental price from 30 to something like RNS or Voice 10 or 12?


  11. Marc Jones says:

    Excellent news Brian.

    My lab is scheduled for the 28th May, and will be using the INE TS Labs as a part of my prep. I found the first one to be a real eye opener, so the more of these I can do the better.
