CCIE Service Provider Workbook v3.0 is an online interactive compilation of more than 60 technology-focused labs and 4 full-scale labs to help you prepare for Cisco’s CCIE Service Provider Lab Exam. The workbook topology is based on INE’s CCIE Service Provider v3.0 rack rentals, and also includes a GNS3/Dynamips .net file that is compatible with the topology.
The workbook is divided into two main sections, Advanced Technology Labs and Full-Scale Labs, and is up to date with the latest v3 Cisco blueprint. The Advanced Technology Labs are your companion to the CCIE Service Provider Advanced Technologies video course download. They consist of hands-on, individually focused, advanced technology labs that present topics in an easy-to-follow, goal-oriented, step-by-step approach. With a clear understanding of these fundamental technologies, you will be able to predict advanced and sometimes subtle interactions when configuring multiple technologies together. The Full-Scale Labs consist of 8-hour lab scenarios that simulate the actual CCIE Service Provider Lab Exam and illustrate the principles behind the technologies that it covers.
The recommended approach for using this workbook is as follows:
- Watch the CCIE Service Provider Advanced Technologies videos
- Follow the recommended readings from class, including the Cisco documentation
- Configure the associated Advanced Technology Labs
- Revisit the videos and readings for further clarification
- Configure the Full-Scale Labs
- Take and pass the CCIE SPv3 Lab Exam!
The physical topology for INE’s CCIE Service Provider Workbook v3 uses 10 routers and 2 switches, which include a mix of 7200s, 2600s, XR 12000s, Catalyst ME3400s, and Catalyst 3550s. This topology has the flexibility to mimic the requirements of Cisco’s actual CCIE Service Provider v3.0 hardware blueprint, while minimizing the cost for users building their own lab at home or work and allowing users to run the regular IOS portion of the topology in GNS3/Dynamips.
