Hi Everyone,

we've just posted the remaining labs in the BGP sections and the content should be available to all subscribed accounts. There are now 61 feature-focused labs in total, listed below. From now on, we will focus on the new blueprint topics for CCIE R&S track, as outlined in New CCIE R&S Reload. The updates for VOL1 and VOL2 will go in parallel.
