CCIE COLLABORATION

The CCIE Collaboration certification is for Collaboration Architects, Unified Communications Architects, or Voice and Video Network Managers who are responsible for the design, implementation, and troubleshooting of complex collaboration solutions. The certification is an expert-level certification that ensures that you gain knowledge and experience in collaboration solutions integration and interoperation, configuration, and troubleshooting in complex networks and the challenges of video, mobility, and presence as the foundation for workplace collaboration solutions.

Certification Step One: Written Exam

The first step towards certification is a two-hour written exam with 90-110 questions that will validate your expertise in foundational networking topics as well as an Evolving Technologies section that will test your knowledge of emerging technologies such as cloud, IoT and software defined networking.

Certification Step Two: Lab Exam

The CCIE lab exam is a hands-on exam lasting eight hours which will test your ability to configure and troubleshoot a variety of network topologies to provided specifications using real-world equipment. To complete your certification, the lab exam must be passed within three years of passing your written exam and your first attempt must be made within the first 18 months.

Associated Certifications: CCIE Collaboration

Exam Description

The CCIE Collaboration lab exam is an eight-hour, hands-on exam which requires you to configure and troubleshoot a series of complex networks to given specifications. Knowledge of troubleshooting is an important skill and candidates are expected to diagnose and solve issues as part of the CCIE lab exam.

Lab Environment

The Cisco documentation CD is available in the lab room, but the exam assumes knowledge of the more common protocols and technologies. The documentation can only be navigated using the index; the search function has been disabled. No outside reference materials are permitted in the lab room. You must report any suspected equipment issues to the proctor during the exam; adjustments cannot be made once the exam is over.

Lab Exam Grading

The labs are graded by proctors who ensure that all the criteria have been met. They will use automatic tools to gather data from the routers in order to perform preliminary evaluations. The final determination of a correct or incorrect configuration is done by a trained proctor.

Lab Format

The CCIE Collaboration Lab exam consists of an 8 hour Troubleshooting and configuration section which aims to validate that candidates have the skills to plan, design, implement, operate, and troubleshoot enterprise collaboration and communication networks.

There are no formal prerequisites for CCIE certification, however, it is recommended that candidates have about 7 years of work experience before attempting the CCIE Collaboration Certification. Other professional certifications or training courses are not required.
