Finally, I passed CCIE R&S written exam.
It is the time to start preparing for CCIE Lab.
As you probably aware, Cisco is doing huge change for examination after 23 Feb 2020.

So, I have to stat preparation for CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure instead of CCIE R&S.

You can find the CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure Equipment and Software List using link below:

This page will be focused on the equipment and software arrangement as close to the exam as possible to practice and better understanding.

Virtual machines

  • Cisco CSR 1000v Series Cloud Services Routers with Cisco IOS XE SD-WAN Release 16.12
    OVA works perfectly under VMware ESXi. Does not work under GNS3 for me.
  • Cisco IOSv with Cisco IOS Software Release 15.8
  • Cisco IOSv-L2 with Cisco IOS Software Release 15.2
  • Cisco SD-WAN (vManage, vBond, vSmart, vEdge) Software Release 18.4
    Friend helped to have v19.3
  • Cisco DNA Center Release 1.3.1

 Physical Equipment

  • Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series Switches Release 16.12
    Crazy expensive.
