CCIE Collaboration V3 Preparation

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

Just to check anyone has started the CCIE Collaboration V3 preparation already? How is your lab setup? Topology etc.

I've brought a HP Proliant DL360P server with Intel Xeon 2x 3.0GHz E5-2690v2 (w/o hyper-threading), 192GB RAM, 2x 900GB storage.

For the UC software, i've downloaded the complete suite from CISCO website. 

I'm using the V2 as the based topology as the hardware and software are close, perhaps some adjustment when the real V3 topology reveal. 

Thanks

How do you prepare for PSTN-like tasks in v3? I was told that there are not any physical phones in the v3 lab anymore.

Which PSTN software are you using? How can I find it? Is it free or some commercial software? I'm a novice in the Collaboration world so I might ask some silly questions though 😋

@YHADDI,

I want to build collaboration lab (based on the pic you posted )at home.  Please advise on the following:

what are the requirements in terms of hardware to build the virtual Collaboration lab for CCIE and so that it will support all of the building blocks (components of the CCIE lab) eg: CUCM, UCCX, vCUBE, Expressway , routers, switches, firewalls, DMZ, Cisco IP phones , jabber

Which emulator platform do u recommend or use (EVE-NG, or VIRL or GNS3)?

How much will it cost in dollars?

you help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you Sir,  I appreciate you taking the time out to help me with your knowledge.  Many of the terminologies are still new to me as I am a fresher in COLLAB.  I am studying courses from IPExpert VOD at the  moment and starting from CCNA VOD and build up from them.  Good luck to you.
