I am sure most people have heard about Cisco’s decision to retire the CCIE Voice, and move forward with the CCIE Collaboration. Here is a good read on it from UCGuerrilla over on his site.

May 29, 2013 marks the day that Cisco announced the new CCIE Collaboration track. For many existing voice CCIEs, this was a welcome change to the blue print as it lined up with what we really do. We were excited about the blue print change and then we read the catch:


Looking forward to heading back to Cisco Live this year. Haven’t been back since I was there last in 2009. Something always seemed to come up the last few years to keep me away. I am excited to be attending this year since it is in Orlando. Not sure how I am going to feel about that Orlando weather though. Got a couple of Don Slice’s EIGRP sessions scheduled. If you use EIGRP in your enterprise network, or prepping for the R&S lab they are very informative.

INE is giving away a Harley this year at their Cisco Live party!

I would like to thank the over 600 people who RSVP’d for INE’s 2013 Party at the Hard Rock Cafe in Orlando during Cisco Live. Registration is closed as of today for our party but I wanted to be the first to let everyone know about the grand prize giveaway we are doing. On top of the standard giveaway prizes (iPads, MacBook Airs, AAP Memberships, Bootcamps, etc) we are giving away a Harley Davidson 2013 XL 1200X Forty-Eight to a lucky winner during our party.
