Cisco just rolled out the Evolving Technologies v1.1 update, which will affect anyone taking their CCIE certification exams on, or after, August 30, 2018. Fortunately, the v1.1 updates are fairly minor. The CCIE/CCDE Evolving Technologies section still includes three overall categories; Cloud, Network Programmability and Internet of things, and still makes up 10% of all CCIE/CCDE written exams. However, changes can be found in the specific topics tested in each of the evolving technologies categories.

Cloud - v1.1

Compare and contrast public, private, hybrid, and multi-cloud design considerations

  • Infrastructure, platform, and software as a service (XaaS)
  • Performance, scalability, and high availability
  • Security implications, compliance, and policy
  • Workload migration

Describe cloud infrastructure and operations

  • Compute virtualization (containers and virtual machines)
  • Connectivity (virtual switches, SD-WAN and SD-Access)
  • Virtualization functions (NFVi, VNF, and L4/L1)
  • Automation and orchestration tools (cloud center, DNA-center, and Kubernetes)

Network Programmability (SDN) - v1.1

Describe architectural and operational Considerations for a programmable network

  • Data models and structures (YANG, JSON and XML)
  • Device programmability (gRPC, NETCONF and RESTCONF)
  • Controller based network design (policy driven configuration and northbound/ southbound APIs)
  • Configuration management tools (agent and agent-less) and version control systems (Git and SVN)

Internet of Things (IOT) - v1.1

Describe architectural framework and deployment considerations for Internet of Things (IoT)

  • IoT technology stack (IoT Network Hierarchy, data acquisition and flow)
  • IoT standards and protocols (characteristics within IT and OT environment)
  • IoT security (network segmentation, device profiling, and secure remote access)
  • IoT edge and fog computing (data aggregation and edge intelligence)
