I thought Cisco would wait until Cisco Live to do the announcement, but looks like they wanted to give everyone time to come up with some questions. I am curious if any of the hardware changes are going to slow down any of the training vendors in updating their material? The additional hardware seems to remove any option of a home lab unless you are just burning piles of money in your spare time already :) The additions of the wireless controller, and IP phone is interesting.

This is what I have been honestly waiting for to see if taking the 3.0 written exam is worth it, or to just wait for the 4.0 version to go live.

    It will be interesting to see how fast the education vendors refresh their hardware & workbooks to support this version. Also how many will be willing to do it is a question ..

    We are purchasing the new equipment now and our rack should be online soon. See our website for more details as we add them.

    Hi,
    I have my Lab scheduled in first week of Dec. I have only few days left for preparation.
    Please suggest if anyone has any idea about the topology of Security LAB version 4 how they have framed and merged WLC and IP phones in security framework.
