Overview

INE offers rack rentals that support all of our self-paced and instructor-led CCIE product lines, including Routing & Switching, Data Center, Voice, Security, and Service Provider. In addition to 24-hour hardware support, INE rack rentals come with simplified scheduling and advanced management control and utilize the same hardware and software used in the actual CCIE lab exams.

How many tokens do I need?

The following are rough estimates of the number of tokens needed to complete these workbooks. The exact number will vary depending on the product and the person. Each token purchased is good toward rack rental sessions.

  • CCIE Routing & Switching Workbook Volumes I and II:
    400 rack rental hours ≈ 2,000 tokens
  • CCIE Routing & Switching Workbook Volumes III and IV:
    150 rack rental hours ≈ 750 tokens

Pricing

All CCIE rack rentals are scheduled in 30 minute sessions using our exclusive token system. This system is designed to give you the flexibility to schedule and reschedule your own sessions at your convenience. Each token purchased represents $1 USD. When consecutive sessions are scheduled on the same rack, you'll get uninterrupted access for the entire duration of the sessions for an even better value.
