CCIE Security Techtorial – TECCCIE-3202
I was really interested on this session, but it turns out that it was just a lecture instead of a hands-on session like in other tracks. The session went smooth with some questions about ISE, ESA and WSA. A few videos were provided as well on how to configure certain tasks on some of the platforms mentioned before, not a big deal.
It was awesome to meet all the team and have some chat. I would like to say thank you to Yusuf Bhaiji, Ziaul Hussain, Vivek Santuka, Ana Peric

It was a quick intro to the portfolio, covering the Host Discovery, Traffic Flow Processing and SSL Decryption.
BRKSEC-3455 Dissecting Firepower – FTD & Firepower- Services “Design & Troubleshooting”
How to rock a Firepower installation and troubleshooting it like a Rock star, presented by one TAC Engineer Leader. Learned some best practices and corner cases made my last session at Cisco Live.
Pack up everything and go back to London sadly, i would make another week of CLEUR easily!
See you next year at CLEUR Barcelona 2019!!!
I’ve been learning about BNG for a while, and this was interesting to see how Cisco is evolving the Product and Market on this area. Met the Marketing Engineer and the Product Manager, lovely guys by the way.
BRKCLD-2280 MultiCloud Deployment of Self Operating Applications Using Cisco CloudCenter and AppDynamics APM
I’ve been playing for a while with CloudCenter (CC) and done some cool demos with F5 integration using API’s called callout scripts in CC. Bundling CC and AppDynamics have a lot to offer, and there is no dependency between them.
Cisco Live’s Walk-in Self-Paced (WISP)
This area is a must for all the attendees, you will be able to have hands-on at some demos which are not available at Cisco dCloud, don’t lose this opportunity to learn more and have fun.
Cisco Certified Design Expert (CCDE) Exam
Yes, i did a go on the Written exam. Oh boy….i was really close to it, got 785 of 860
It was was a really good assessment, now i know what i have to cover for my next attempt.
Cisco Live is not only sessions , networking and geeks!
We know how to do an Epic Party!
BRKDCN-2489 Cisco SD-Access – Integration with Data Center Architectures
SD-Access is primarily Campus focused, an overlay technology which allow the user to have the same user experience anywhere but the exciting part is the ball is moving to the Data Center edge exchanging policies with the Cisco ACI. It seems going to cover the gap we have these days not replicating the Policies between Campus and Data Center but ultimately i hope across the entire state.
PSOSEC-2559 The Integrated Cisco Security Portfolio for a more effective security posture
A different view how we should see the security, embracing it, adopting new paradigms, simplify it, do less for more. Everyone is protecting the perimeter, that is the actual plan. Do you have a plan after got hit? Isn’t also important?
Configit was quite challenging for me specially the config on the IOS-XR, because i do not touch on this for a long time. To me it looks much more structured in a sense of the config than the IOS family
Special tank you to Lizabete Cacic, Lukasz Bromirski and team
I If you want the LAB/docs let me know
A very exciting first day with swags, Cisco Champion giffs, and do networking with really nice people about new trends and challenges in the industry.
TECCCDE-3005 CCDE:The Cisco Certified Design Expert
I was really looking forward to have the session CCDE: The Cisco Certified Design Expert [TECCCDE-3005], and start move from a “How to do it” to “Why to do it” mindset shift. We covered the basic foundations for an Architect to take in consideration and Technologies on the written/lab exam.
We finished the session with a small demo about how the exam is built, and graded.
It was awesome to meet all the team and have some chat. I would like to say thank you to Russ White, Architect, Elaine Lopes,Yuri Lukin,Tom Whaley
If you are looking to start your CCDE journey here are some of the suggested study materials:
This is going to be my 2nd Cisco Live, and i’m very excited because i’ve learned a lot over the past 8 years and i’m in a different professional stage at the moment that 8 years ago it was just a dream. I’m a strong believer that these events are important to grow your “networking” and keep you updated on new trends/technology.
So how my calendar looks like so far?
- CCDE Techtorial and Exam
If you are are around, lets grab a beer and crack some of the topics above
Thanks to spend your time reading this post on the first day of the new year.
The 2017 was a busy year regards projects and a new area i’ve been exploring myself (Business Development), this is quite new for me but it’s going….
What i mean by Business Development? I’ve been focus only on Engineering (hands-on) which is by far what i really like to do, so i get the implementation plan and GO! Why not dive in the conversation with the customer and understand their challenges, advise what technologies are in the market that really suit them. Presenting cutting-edge technologies and advise the customer is also something i really like.
What do i have for this upcoming year? I’ve done some re-cert’s, like Juniper, VMware and Cisco.
I have do do some re-certs this year too, but i want to focus more on the CCDE than ever, so i’m starting officially today and i hope do the Written in 6 months. I will attend the Cisco Live Barcelona 2018, so i hope get good contacts to push this even further. This is the plan mentally but i know this might has to change a bit.
CCNA Cyber Ops is just around the corner :)
Happy New Year.
