As we first reported to you back in July, Cisco was planning on expanding their offering of Mobile CCIE Labs to the Voice track as well. We've been talking with the team, and we knew this was just around the corner from being announced, but today Cisco finally made it official and announced that they have completed the necessary arrangements to bring the Voice track into the current Mobile CCIE Lab offerings.

At a brief glance, we can see that they are offering the CCIE Voice lab at the following dates and locations:

  • Seoul, South Korea -- Nov 7 - 11, 2011
  • Toronto, Canada -- Nov 14 - 18, 2011
  • Mexico City, Mexico -- Jan 9 - 13, 2012
  • Buenos Aires, Argentina -- Mar 5 - 9, 2012
  • Seoul, South Korea -- Mar 19 - 23, 2012
  • Mexico City, Mexico -- Apr 2 - 6, 2012

These mobile sites add to the permanent locations that you are already able to take the CCIE Voice lab, which include:

A few things this might mean to you --whether you are taking it at a mobile or fixed lab location-- is that you can expect:

  • Not to have any more printed lab booklets in the ol' traditional 3-ring binder, but instead can expect to have all lab materials in a digital, PDF-like format, using Cisco's custom "Lab Delivery System'
  • Most of your exam is now being graded by Cisco custom scripted grading engine (this is a good thing as it makes for less human-grading errors - such as dialing the wrong number and marking you off on it)

Finally, a complete list of all tracks' mobile testing locations and dates can be found here.

About Mark Snow, CCIE #14073

You might say that Mark Snow began his networking career at the age of five, when his father, a patented research scientist at AT&T Bell Laboratories, started sharing his knowledge with Mark. He has been working with data and voice technology ever since, beginning with Unix System V and basic analog telephony and progressing to large data networking projects and large phone systems in both enterprise and 911 PSAP environments around the world. You’ll see Mark in all of INE’s Voice video courses and live Bootcamps. Mark Snow is also an accomplished pilot, and when he isn’t learning, labing, consulting, or teaching, he can be found jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, hanging off a rock somewhere, skiing out west, or just enjoying a quiet day at the beach with his wife and two wonderful kids.
