Having passed the CCIE Voice 10 years ago, and having taught on the technologies surrounding both Voice and Collaboration ever since, one might think that the exam would be easy to pass. I can assure you that no matter how much you know, no CCIE exam is easy to pass. Cisco doesn't allow them to be. Every CCIE track requires hard work and preparation, even if it may, at first glance, seem somewhat of a repeat of things you already know. You may ask since I had the CCIE Voice already, why I...

Earlier this year in April, we reported to you about a major change in policy to retakes of the CCIE Written and Lab exam. Just today Cisco updated that policy with a major blow for anyone who has been preparing under the old pretenses. Namely that: "These policy changes will be applied retroactively from the date of a candidate's first lab attempt." The seemingly innocuous announcement can be found on their CCIE Lab Policy page, just above the table indicating how long you must wait between... Read More

Whe you are plugging along with your studies or enjoying a cookout today - I thought I'd post a short video to make you smile today. If you couldn't make it out to INE's Rewired party at Cisco Live this past week in San Francisco, or if you just had to leave early and catch the end of the CCIE Party, you missed something special. This is our very own Brian McGahan shredding it up with the band. I think he was sad that he couldn't stay to see Lenny Kravitz play, and felt the need to participate... Read More

Introduction In a continuing effort to protect the integrity of the CCIE program, Cisco has announced a major change regarding the retake policy of the CCIE Written and Practical Lab exams. These changes take effect on August 1, 2014. Assuming a candidate happens not to pass on their first attempt at either a written or a practical "lab" exam within a given track, the frequency with which they will be allowed to retake the exam will change dramatically from past allowances, effectively not...

We've been putting a lot of time into development for quite a while now on the new CCIE Collaboration blueprint and wanted to share with you a few updates. If you've taken a look at the blueprint anytime recently, you know that there is quite a lot of material to be covered, and that a simple 5-day class would never suffice. So we've put together a new class that is extremely thorough, spanning a 10-day period, and we wanted to share with you the updated outline for the class structure as well... Read More

We've heard you loud and clear, and we understand that gaining access to Nexus 7000s, Nexus 5000s, UCS and Storage for hands-on practice is probably one of the more difficult parts of studying for the CCNA/CCNP and CCIE Data Center certifications. That's why we're happy to announce that we have just added 5 new DC racks available for rental immediately. Read More
