CCIE Collaboration Labs by Technologies

In order to organize myself for my lab preparation I need to work on my speed and accuracy, so I created quick and very general Lab outlines, which will be covering CUCM as of now. I created them so that I can guide myself and know where to begin, where to stop and don’t burn myself (hoping this strategy to work!!)

I know I’m missing lots and lots of information and study domains, such as QoS and yes, QoS… Infrastructure and Multicast… I do feel confident with the Network infrastructure configuration, but need more work on QoS and Multicast, if you know of good QoS labs let me know… enjoy!
