Hi Everyone,

We’ve just posted more updates to our renowned IEWB-RS VOL1 – Technology focused labs. The MPLS section is now complete (well maybe just a couple more tasks coming) resulting in 16 new scenarios. In addition to that, the Security section of VOL1 has been updated as well, featuring another 10 labs. That makes a total of 26 more new scenarios with breakdowns, solutions, and verifications! Here is the list of the new topics added:

MPLS VPN:

VRF Lite
MPLS LDP
MPLS Label Filtering
MP-BGP VPNv4
MP-BGP Prefix Filtering
PE-CE Routing with RIP
PE-CE Routing with OSPF
OSPF Sham-Link
PE-CE Routing with EIGRP
EIGRP SOO and Cost Community
PE-CE Routing with BGP
BGP SOO
BGP AS Override
Internet Access
AToM
L2TPv3
MPLS VPN Performance Tuning

Hi everyone,

been quiet for a while, had to travel a lot last week. We have posted the updates to the IEWB-SC VOL1 “Hotfix” section:

IOS CA
IPS VLAN Groups and Virtual Sensor
IPS Event Summarization
IPS Event Processing
IPS Blocking and Rate-Limiting
IPS Application Inspection and Control
IPS META Engine
IPS Anomaly Detection
IOS IPS

and to IEWB-VO VOL1

SIP Phone Endpoints
Basic User Configuration
CUCM OS Users
Softkey Templates
Phone Button Templates
Common Phone Profile
Directory Number/Line Configuration
Partitions
Calling Search Spaces
Gateway – MGCP T1 PRI
Gateway – H.323
T1 CAS
Route Groups
Route Lists
Route Patterns
Local Route Group

As for R&S, we’re currently working on the new addition to VOL1, which outlines the troubleshooting process in general, defines strategies and provides troubleshooting examples. This is to be released the next month. In addition to that, we’re preparing separate troubleshooting labs to be delivered in addition to VOL2 scenarios. Those will use separate topologies and will use a trouble-ticket pool that we develop. As for technology updates, we’re hindering that a bit and giving more priority to the troubleshooting scenarios. Personally I believe that adding troubleshooting to the CCIE R&S lab is the most important change, as it affects the whole lab strategy

There were people asking for our new R&S rack topology. We delayed that announce, because the one we’re currently working with would probably be expensive for many people using their own racks. We’re looking for a ways to implement our workbooks on a hybrid, less expensive topology. But if you want to know what being used now – it’s 5x1841s for R1, R2, R4, R5 and R6 and one 2811 for R3. All cabling connections and switches remain unchanged. If you would pick up that topology, you wont miss anything (well maybe some money); but if you’re trying to minimize the upgrade expenses, we’ll do our best to make that possible.

Happy studying!

Hi Everyone,

yesterday we posted another VOL2 lab to all subscribed member’s account. The lab is a full-scale 8 hour mock exam aimed to prepare you for the real CCIE Security exam. The updated material covers the following new features found in CCIE Security v3.0 bluepring: IPSec VTI (Virtual Tunnel Interface), CBAC Enhancements (found in IOS 12.4), NVI (NAT Virtual Interface), GET VPN (Group Encrypted Transport VPN), Control Plan Protection (an enhancement to Control Plane Policing), SNMPv3 (secure form of SNMP). And of course, more updates for IEWB-SC VOL1 and VOL2 are coming this month!
