Cisco To Update CCIE Lab Exams
Cisco announced it will be updating its Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) lab exams Jan. 1, 2006 to reflect current networking practices, it said on its Web site. No new technologies will be added to the exams.
The following changes are planned:
- CCIE Routing and Switching written and lab exams will no longer include the following protocols or media types: DLSW, IS-IS, ISDN, PPP-over-Ethernet and ATM.
- CCIE Security lab exams will no longer test on ISDN technology, and ATM will no longer be used as a Layer 2 transport protocol for WAN connectivity.
- CCIE Voice lab exams will no longer use ATM as a Layer 2 transport protocol for WAN connectivity.
The CCIE Service Provider lab exams, however, will continue to test on ATM and IS-IS, as they are widely deployed in service provider networks.
