The Cisco 360 Troubleshooting graded assessments are intermediate to advanced difficulty-level labs that should be attempted by learners who are comfortable with basic and intermediate level internetworking topics.
The Troubleshooting labs give learners the best approximation of the CCIE lab exam experience in terms of environment, complexity and incident wording, yet provide thorough feedback that aids with learning and exam preparation. Students are able to learn to troubleshoot complex network topologies, to understand and solve minimally described CCIE problems and to get used to the virtual lab environment so that time on the exam is used wisely.
The Troubleshooting lab topology includes between 28 and 30 devices. It is delivered in the IOU (IOS software on Unix) environment that includes Layer 2 switching functionality. Duration is 2 hours.
Cisco 360 Troubleshooting Assessment Lab 7 (CIERS-TU-LAB04) includes the following technology topics:
- Incident 1: Layer 3 - EIGRP
- Incident 2: Layer 3 - BGP
- Incident 3: Layer 3 - OSPF
- Incident 4: Layer 3 - IPv4 Redistribution
- Incident 5: Services - EEM
- Incident 6: Layer 3 - MPLS VPN Internet
- Incident 7: Services - Control Plane
- Incident 8: Application - Frame Relay DE Bit
- Incident 9: Security - IP Options
- Incident 10: Layer 2 - Frame Relay
Each incident is an isolated troubleshooting ticket that needs to be resolved in order to receive the points that are assigned to each incident. Each lab comes with a detailed Answer Key, a Score Card, and a Mentor Guide which allows students to compare their configuration against the master configuration. The product includes an 18-month subscription. The lab is performed on Cisco 360 equipment.
