Full Scale Lab 1 has been added to the CCIE Routing & Switching v5 Workbook. More Foundation, Troubleshooting, and Full Scale Labs will be coming soon, including additional updates before the end of the weekend. I will post more information about additional content and its release schedule shortly.

This lab uses a 20 router topology which will be available through our rack rental system shortly.  In the meantime if you have your own lab built on CSR1000v, IOU/IOL, etc. the initial configs are available to download on the lab 1 tasks page.  For technical discussion of this lab, please visit the Full Scale Labs section of our Online Community here.

    Is there a per-determined amount of time that this should take? So we can gauge our swiftness.

    Hi Brian,
    Will it be possible to have FULL SCALE LAB and TS LAB that will have switches connectivity between the routers ?
    you know…it is possible to use more than 1 VNIC !
    I think it will be more effective to have L2 and L3 TS and configuration when one affects the other.
