Friday Oct 11th starting at 10am PDT I'm going to be holding an all day online R&S CCIE session covering IPv4 Route Redistribution Configuration and Troubleshooting. From the R&S CCIE Bootcamps I know that some of the more popular topics are IPv4 route redistribution, IPv4 multicast and MPLS L3 VPNs. I'm going to start with IPv4 route redistribution first since it can be covered in a single 5 to 6 hour session. I'll cover the other two later this month as IPv4 multicast and MPLS L3 VPNs each needs to spanned over two days (two 6 or 7 hour sessions) to fully cover them. Let me know in the comments what other topics you would like to see done after. Please say SDN! ;-)

To sign up for the session click here. These sessions will be recorded and the configurations will be available so you can follow along with the recordings. I will be using the larger 32 device R&S topology which can be rented through your members site account.


Graded R&S CCIE troubleshooting lab 3 has been released. You'll find that this lab has detailed walk-through breakdowns with me explaining how the fault/faults were discovered along with the solution. Additional I discuss other possible solutions and explain why a particular solution is used.

After we released the first two labs a few months back and got the feedback from the users we know that this is the future of INE's Routing and Switching CCIE labs going forward. I'm going to start writing new labs that focus on a mix of configuration and troubleshooting along with labs that focus on a particular technology (i.e. IPv6 multicast lab, BGP lab, OSPFv2 lab, etc) so not only will they help you with the troubleshooting section but also the configuration section.

We will be pushing a new update out sometime this month that will allow you to compare your command output right alongside the solutions command output. This way if you missed a ticket you can go back and look at exactly why your solution wasn't valid.

Lastly I've lowered the pricing of the TS graded labs to 30 tokens. This is more in line with the rest of the rack pricing. If you have any questions concerning these new TS labs or any INE product feel free to email me directly at bdennis@ine.com.

For those who are unfamiliar with the new Troubleshooting labs you can book them for 30 tokens in your members site account.
