Last day for CCIE v4

It is not a news for CCIE student that today is the last day to pass CCIE lab in version 4. I hope the best for all the students whom will work hard today towards their digits.

Tomorrow is future : CCIE v5 is here. It is the version I will pass. A little review :

Bye bye to :

  • Flexlink, ISL, Layer 2 Protocol Tunneling
  • Frame-Relay (LFI, FR Traffic Shaping)
  • WCCP
  • IOS Firewall and IPS
  • RITE, RMON
  • RGMP
  • RSVP QoS, WRR/SRR

Welcome to new technologies :

  • Use IOS Troubleshooting Tools
  • Apply Troubleshooting Methodologies
  • Interpret Packet Capture
  • Implement and Troubleshoot Bidirectional Forwarding Detection
  • Implement EIGRP (multi-address) Named Mode
  • Implement, Troubleshoot and Optimize EIGRP and OSPF Convergence and Scalability
  • Implement and Troubleshoot DMVPN (single hub)
  • Implement and Troubleshoot IPsec with pre-shared key
  • Implement and Troubleshoot IPv6 First Hop Security

And the format of CCIE lab will change from TS & CONFIG to TS & DIAG & CONFIG. DIAG is a TS part only with some information (exhibit, mails, …) and no access to any equipment.

It will be fun 🙂
