Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or CCIE certification is considered to be a series of technical certifications for senior networking professionals who would be designing, building, implementing, maintaining as well as troubleshooting complex enterprise networking infrastructures. I would like to recommend that if you have proper training like that offered by the SPOTO Club.
CCIE Written Exam:
The CCIE Written Examination is considered to be a closed book and thus, no outside reference materials are going to be allowed. An Evolving Technologies section would be included in the CCIE Written exam only. It is going to be facilitating candidates to bridge their core technology expertise along with knowledge of the evolving technologies that would be adopted at an accelerated pace, like cloud, IoT, and network programmability.
CCIE Lab Exam:
The CCIE Lab Exam would be an eight-hour lab Exam, which would be consisting of three modules and needed to be taken in the following sequence during the day of the exam:
Module 1: Troubleshooting module (two hours)
The Troubleshooting module is going to deliver incidents that are independent of each other, which would means that the resolution of one incident doesn’t depend on the resolution of another. The topology that would be utilized in the Troubleshooting module is going to be different from the topology which would be utilized in the Configuration module.
The Troubleshooting module is considered to be of 2 hours. If desired, candidates are allowed to extend the Troubleshooting module’s by borrowing up to 30 min from the Configuration module. Note, the total Configuration’s module time would be reduced by the extra time which would be spent in the Troubleshooting module (if any, up to 30 min). If the candidates are able to be complete the Troubleshooting module early, the unused Troubleshooting module’s time would be added to the Configuration module’s time, by ensuring that the total lab exam time would be 8 hours. The Diagnostic module is considered to be fixed in duration (60 minutes).
Module 2: Diagnostic module (one hour)
The new Diagnostic module would be focusing on the skills which would be required for properly diagnosing network issues, without having device access. Candidates would be provided with a set of documentation that is going to represents a snapshot of a realistic situation: at a point in time in an investigation process that a network engineer might be facing. The main purpose of the Diagnostic module is to assess the skills which are going to be required to properly diagnose network issues.
These activities would be considered to naturally part of the overall troubleshooting skills. They are going to be designed as a separated lab module because the format of the items would be significantly different. In the Troubleshooting module, the candidate is repenting to be able to troubleshoot and resolve network security issues on actual devices
Module 3: Configuration module (five hours)
The Configuration module would be providing a setup very close to an actual production network having various security components providing various layers of security at different points in the network. Though the major part of the module is based on virtual instances of the Cisco security appliances, the candidate may be asked to work with physical devices as well. At the commencement of the module, the candidate would be having full visibility of the entire module. A candidate can choose to work in the sequence in which the items are going to be presented or can resolve items in whatever order seems preferable and logical.
So, if you wish to have the CCIE Certification and I would suggest to gain the training offered at the SPOTO Club.
