Edit: Full Scale Lab 4 is also now available.

A new update to INE’s CCIE Service Provider Lab Workbook Version 3.0 has been posted today, and is available to download from the INE Members’ Site. This update includes some minor typographical fixes to labs in the Technology Labs section, as well as a new Full Scale Lab 3. Two additional full scale labs will be posted within the next week or so which will bring the workbook to its completion. Right now the workbook is about 800 pages, so the final release will be somewhere around 1,000 pages.

Also congratulations to Daniel Wang, Jason Rowley, and Sangareddy M who recently passed the CCIE SPv3 Lab Exam! Here’s what they had to say about their experiences:

I passed my SP LAB at Cisco live 2012 last week. Without your outstanding workbook, video and online Rack, I couldn’t pass it at the first attempt within 3 month. It’s my third CCIE certificate, and I used your security workbook exclusively two years ago to clear my security track.
Kudos to all of you for excellent job.

Best Regards,

I passed my lab on May 15. The CCIE-SP Advanced Technology Class videos were well put together and helpful in my preparation. The convenience of being able to watch on my laptop at home, my work pc, or on my ipad was awesome. Good job INE.

After 2 years of hardwork, I finally cleared my ccie service provider lab #35224 on my third attempt. I used latest v3.0 INE videos and old workbooks for my preparation. The videos presented by Brian are great/fantastic. He clearly explained on all the technologies with great examples. I strongly recommend latest ATCv3.0 videos for CCIE-SP preparation. It covers all the IOS-XR related information that is required to pass the exam. Thank you Brian/INE.

CCIE SPv3 Rack Rentals – which include IOS XR – are now out of beta and available for normal scheduling via the INE Members’ Site. The rack topology is based on our CCIE Service Provider Version 3.0 Lab Workbook and the CCIE Service Provider Version 3.0 Advanced Technologies Class.

Currently each session costs 20 tokens, and each session is 3 hours long. If you purchase tokens in bulk this basically means that SPv3 rack time is around $3 per hour. Token based sessions start on Monday May 7th. People who booked beta sessions before this time (i.e. through Sunday) will still maintain their free sessions. Anyone who booked a beta session on Monday May 7th or later has had your session removed. You can of course add them back through the scheduler, but the sessions are no longer free to book after the end of this weekend.

A brief video on how to use the new scheduling system and SPv3 Rack Rentals is available here.

We’re continuing to add functionality to the new scheduler and its control panel, which includes choosing a config to pre-load before a session starts via the control panel, remote power control via the control panel, loading product configs, saving your current configs, renaming your previously saved configs, downloading your previously saved configs, and re-loading your previously saved configs onto a current session or session scheduled in the future.

If anyone runs into any problems with the scheduler or any of its features please submit feedback so we can get these issues addressed as soon as possible.

Thanks and good luck in your studies!

INE is proud to announce that our long awaited CCIE Service Provider Lab Workbook Version 3.0 is now available!  The initial pre-release of the workbook contains over 500 pages of technology focused labs to help you prepare for Cisco’s newest CCIE Service Provider Lab Exam.  Similar to other “rough cut” books, the pre-release of the workbook is for students that want to begin work on their hands-on preparation for the lab exam without further delay.  Over the next few weeks the workbook will be updated to include more technology labs, along with the full scale labs.  The workbook includes a GNS3/Dynamips .net file that is compatible with the topology, and rack rentals that include IOS XR will be available soon.  A sample of the workbook can be found here.

I’ve been getting a lot of emails recently asking when our updated CCIE Service Provider Version 3.0 Workbooks and Rack Rentals are going to be released.  And the answer is… soon :)  In fact sooner than ever.  We’re looking at somewhere around the end of March for the release of both the updated Workbook and Rack Rentals.  The updated Workbook will be broken down into two sections, Technology Labs and Full Scale Labs.  Essentially this will be the merging of the previous Volume 1 and Volume 2 workbooks into a single workbook that has two parts.  A sample of the Technology Labs section of the CCIE SPv3 Workbook can be found here.

The technology labs closely follow the flow of our CCIE Service Provider Version 3.0 Advanced Technologies Class-on-Demand.  The idea being that you will be able to watch the videos and then follow along with the hands-on portion of the technology based labs, or do the technology based labs and then fall back to the videos for sections that you don’t fully understand.

As for the hardware requirements of the Workbook everything that is regular IOS based will be able to be configured on Dynamips/GNS3, however as there is not yet a public virtualization solution for IOS XR this means that you’ll need hands-on experience with real IOS XR routers.  You will be able to do this through our rack rentals, or the racks of several other vendors that will be compatible with our topology.

More information will be made available as the final release of the Workbooks and Rack Rentals approach.

Happy Labbing!

One of our most anticipated products of the year – INE’s CCIE Service Provider v3.0 Advanced Technologies Class – is now complete!  The videos from class are in the final stages of post production and will be available for streaming and download access later this week.  Download access can be purchased here for $299.  Streaming access is available for All Access Pass subscribers for as low as $65/month!  AAP members can additionally upgrade to the download version for $149.

At roughly 40 hours, the CCIE SPv3 ATC covers the newly released CCIE Service Provider version 3 blueprint, which includes the addition of IOS XR hardware. This class includes both technology lectures and hands on configuration, verification, and troubleshooting on both regular IOS and IOS XR. Class topics include Catalyst ME3400 switching, IS-IS, OSPF, BGP, MPLS Layer 3 VPNs (L3VPN), Inter-AS MPLS L3VPNs, IPv6 over MPLS with 6PE and 6VPE, AToM and VPLS based MPLS Layer 2 VPNs (L2VPN), MPLS Traffic Engineering, Service Provider Multicast, and Service Provider QoS.
