CCIE Experiences Tomorrow

In less than 24 hours I will be conducting a free webex session of CCIE Experiences: a complete story of how to prepare, pass, work and live as CCIE (in English). More than 400 people around the world have registered, about 20% are Cisco employees, and the rest comes from Cisco customers, partners, universities even our competitors.

There is a chance some of the attendees are first time webex users, so I will start the meeting earlier even the presentation will still start at 11 am Dubai time (GMT+4) tomorrow Sunday, 24 October 2010. You may want to join around 10.30 am Dubai time to test your browser, audio, chat, video and other webex meeting client features.

Below are some FAQs:

How to join the meeting?
If you have registered, you should get confirmation email with the instruction how to join. Click the link in the email and if this is the first time you attend webex client, the browser may ask to download the client. Just follow the step until you can see the meeting client and my first slide.

How to hear the audio?
There is no integrated audio, so you must use your normal phone or mobile. When the first time the meeting client pops up it will ask you to put your country code and the phone number. Do so and webex will call you. The other option is to dial the webex global number listed here, when requested put the meeting number as written in the email and follow the step until you successfully join the meeting.

What will you discuss during the session?
A complete story of my CCIE journey from the very beginning (CCNA) until 3xCCIE. Plus some advice about career in computer networking. Check the agenda on my previous post.

Will you discuss the CCIE real questions?
In the meeting with 20% of attendees are Cisco employees? Are you nuts? :) No, and I won't do it in any other session either.

Which CCIE track will you be focusing on?
CCIE SP, since this is the last track I passed and currently I work with SP technologies. I will share my view about CCIE SP 3.0 too.

How to ask questions during the meeting?
Use the chat, I will try to answer the questions on the fly if it's related with the section I'm currently talking about.

Will you repeat the session sometime in the future?
Most likely not. I don't mind to give another free webex session but probably not about CCIE experiences anymore.

Will you record the session?
Yes, but it means it won't be interactive since you can't ask question and based on my previous experience the quality of the recording may not be optimum. And the recording won't be available to download, you can only play it directly from the Internet.

CCIE SP 3.0 Lab Equipments

Please stop saying IOS XR will make it too expensive and difficult to pass the new CCIE SP 3.0. The real CCIE candidates should be grateful because now anyone who can pass the lab proves at least he knows XR and latest features on 12.2.33SR IOS. In fact, Cisco should modify the name of the track to CCIE SP NGN or something, to distinguish SP 3.0 with SP 2.0. And instead of whining about how to find a lab to practice XR, you should start asking the following questions: will the XR be used as P or PE? 7600 simulator to run 12.2.33SR means no real hardware, what could be tested without the hardware? What technology can be asked from ME series? And so on

Lab Equipment
• Cisco XR12000 Series Routers
• Cisco 7200/7600 Series equivalent Routers (Using Simulator)
• Cisco ME3400E Series Switches

Software Versions
• XR12000 routers running IOS-XR Software Version 3.9.1
• 7200/7600 routers running IOS Software Version 12.2-33 SR
• ME3400E switches running IOS Software Version 12.2-54 SE

CCIE Experiences - WebEx Trial

More than 360 people around the world have registered for the free WebEx session "CCIE Experiences" (in English) this Sunday. And only 15% are Cisco employees. It means there is a chance some of the attendees are first-time user of Cisco WebEx. So I'm going to conduct a WebEx trial on Friday between 9 am to 12 pm Dubai time (GMT+4). You can find the meeting information below. During the trial please make sure you can use the WebEx client to join the meeting, see the slide, use chat, see the video, and use audio (just talk to others).

Himawan Nugroho invites you to attend this online meeting.

Topic: CCIE Experiences - Trial

CCIE Common Things

If you either one of the following:

- graduated from non-computer science nor IT
- have no clue on how to start pursuing the certification
- do not get any CCIE training from the company
- are living separate from the family just to study
- got pressure to pass CCIE
- must pay the lab exam yourself
- are not a Cisco employee
- are an ordinary guy, not an expert nor a geek

and you still want to become CCIE, then we may have things in common! Well, at least you share the common things with me at some point of time in my life.

I graduated from mechanical engineering. I didn't learn anything related to computer networking in campus except how to use IRC to chat and how to master the networked game like Warcraft, neither did I know about the certification program. I got into CCNA and the job as network engineer by chance, but then I took one certification at a time even I didn't get any Cisco training at all until CCIE. I used to live separate from my family just to study. I got the pressure from the company to pass my first CCIE on two attempts, or 'else'. For my second CCIE I must saved money to pay the two attempts. I had already two CCIEs before I joined Cisco. And until now I don't consider my self an expert nor a geek :)

You see, all the above didn't stop me to pass 3 CCIEs and get a job in a respected team with Cisco Systems.

If you are interested to hear more, you can join the free webex session of "CCIE Experiences: a complete story of how to prepare, pass, work and live as CCIE" in English on Sunday, 24 October 2010 from 11 am to 1 pm Dubai time (UTC+4). It really is a complete story of my CCIE journey, starting from the very beginning (CCNA) until I passed CCIE in 3 tracks. I will discuss about how I prepared, how I built the home lab to practice, from where I get funded, my experience during lab day, my life after I have become CCIE and so on, with some advices about the career in computer networking.

The session is open for everyone, as long as you are willing to register here. Once your registration is approved, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions for joining the meeting.

Until today there are already more than 300 people around the world have registered. They come from different background and companies, such as from our customers, partners, universities, Cisco employees and even from competitors.

It will be an exciting Sunday.
