The lab is ready to go!

with 2 comments

Well, with the exception of a console server I got all my routers racked, stacked, and cabled!

It’s all cabled and ready to go! I got the following:

4x Cisco 1841’s

2x Cisco 2621xm’s

2x 2610xm’s

1x 2620xm

2x 3750’s

2x 3560’s

1x 3745 -This is going to get a NM-32a modules for the console server.

Aside from the lab equipment I got:

1x SonicWall TZ210

2x 2960 switches

And, I still got 2U left in the rack not sure what to fill that space up with yet. I was thinking of some old 2950G’s or maybe a Cisco ASA. I also picked up the INE workbooks last week so I here goes nothing!

My CCIE reading list!

with 4 comments

A few of the CCIE books I have next to my bed!

Well, I’m still working towards my CCIE: Route/Switch, I figured I’d post an update about it, and why not focus on the books I’m using to prep for the CCIE: R/S Written exam:

  1. Routing TCP/IP Volume I 2nd Edition
  2. Routing TCP/IP Volume II
  3. Cisco LAN Switching
  4. CCIE: Routing & Switching Certification Guide
  5. Troubleshooting IP Routing Protocols
  6. QoS Certification Guide
  7. BGP Design & Implementation
  8. Developing IP Multicast Network
  9. MPLS Fundamentals
  10. Deploying IPv6 Networks
  11. IPv6 for the Enterprise
  12. Optimal Routing Design
  13. Cisco Firewalls
  14. CCNP: Security SECURE

I’m sure that will be enough to cover the objectives of the CCIE:R/S Written. I’ve actually already read through a good portion of the books mentioned, hopefully in the next month or two I will be ready to tackle the written exam!

Anyway back to reading and labbing, I’m working my way through the Multicast objectives, then I’m going to tackle IPv6, and review VRF/MP-BGP and then I’ll be ready to take on the exam!

I guess it’s time I should update my library page.
