It’s not April fools day, so what the title means? No chance to Cisco stay behind the software world! I would expect that Cisco will use VR soon as part of their Collaboration suite
If you are going to Cisco Live US you can see this two Demos:
BeTheRouter (BTR) – in this App, you are the heart and decision maker of what to do with the packets in terms of routing policy, QoS, etc.
TroubleshootTheLab (TTL) – in this App, user is presented a real-life-looking data center environment with tasks to rack-and-stack Cisco equipment in 3D such as Routers and Switches, followed by a cabling exercise to connect various devices according to the topology diagram, and troubleshoot a cabling issue fix.
Cisco announced enhancements to CCIE/CCDE Program just on Written exam, but the big change is a Dual-Monitor at Lab exam. These enhancements will enable candidates to get knowledge of the evolving technologies that organizations are adopting such as cloud, IoT, and network programmability.
All Expert-Level certification programs will implement the following changes:
A new section titled “Evolving Technologies” will be added to all Expert-Level written exams. Lab exams will not be affected.
The written exams will be recalibrated to include the “Evolving Technologies” section, which will have three subdomains and a total of five tasks for which the expected depth of knowledge will be focused on conceptual comprehension.
Evolving Technologies Domain
1.1: Compare and contrast Cloud deployment models
Infrastructure, platform, and software services (XaaS)
Performance and reliability
Security and privacy
Scalability and interoperability
1.2: Describe Cloud implementations and operations
Automation and orchestration
Troubleshooting and management
2. Network Programmability
2.1: Describe functional elements of network programmability (SDN) and how they interact
Northbound vs. Southbound protocols
2.2: Describe aspects of virtualization and automation in network environments
DevOps methodologies, tools and workflows
Network/application function virtualization (NFV, AFV)
Service function chaining
Performance, availability, and scaling considerations
3. Internet of Things
3.1: Describe architectural framework and deployment considerations for Internet of Things (IoT)
In an arena where is dominated mostly by men, this is a good example where you have 2 women warriors who achieved a CCIE Level. I found a few examples in Social Media Linkedin but this got my attention, the fun thing is they are mother and daughter. Listen and learn!
A tabela das versões dos Labs (CCIE) em que se tornaram activas. Supostamente a Cisco informa com 6 meses de antecedência a nova versão. Algumas não foi possível constatar qual a versão pelo que considerei como sendo a v1.
Conforme já havia comentado num dos posts, a Cisco devido á procura e eventuais reclamações decidiu abrir novos seats. Hoje ligaram-me para marcar novamente exame, o que me deixou em euforia e sob pressão, mas das boas :)…. Curiosamente questionei sobre os facilities e garantiram que são os mesmos, espero bem que sim para não ter que arranjar outra desculpa para um 2 Bang! Agora é prego a fundo!
