CCIE expert tell you what is the real CCIE ?
In Fact, everyone has their own standards for this issue so here I will talk about the standard that I think. I personally think that the only. Thing that can tell if you are a real CCIE, there in only one standard. That is to to do many projects whether or not it has been independently. How many devices have Benn debugged, how may errors have been checked and how much work you have done from the selection of the device to the pre-architecture of the network to the configuration process to the final.
For example, my friend who is live in Singapore. He can be said to be a real CCIE because he has done more than 30 million US dollars of projects. In fact, the big projects are divided into several categories, such as some debugging only. Some only moving equipment, some just do data, systems, servers or storage. Only do sales and some only do after-sales technical support. However, the reason why I think that he is a real CCIE , it’s mainly because the $30 million project is completely by him alone from the pre-sles equipment selection model to the after-sales commissioning completion.
To the acceptance, everyone can think and know that this project has complex. I personally think here is no way for me to complete this project. I also encountered a lot of complicated problems. At that time, I discuss with him about the details of the technical for almost half a year. There are four main equipments involved:N7010, more than 150. 4507R, access layer equipment and firewalls and routers, etc. It is not necessary to say that after the project is debugged, it will shipped to Saudi Arabia for installation.
There are some problems encountered at that time:
ISBL's 2 cores 6509 do VSS, OSBL's 2 cores 6509 do VSS.
Two Juniper ISG1000s of ISBL are A/S, and two Juniper ISG1000s of OSBL are A/S. Since the internal NMS4.0 manages the egress gateway, the egress switch also has Juniper SA4500 VPN. Concentrator. Therefore, in addition to the need to put SNMP traffic on the FW, which traffic needs to be released?
The two 3750-X switches that are exported are stacked, and only when the Layer 2 switch is used and the Layer 3 switch does not run. After /no ip routing, write default-gateway to point to ISG1000.
All switches are configured with SSO
Two export routers of ISBL and OSBL, 4 firewalls, and OSPF AREA0 between 4 cores.
HSRP is configured on the distribution layer switch according to IP ADDRESS & VLAN Design, and the network segment is advertised to OSPF. // Since all are advertised to OSPF, can you use network 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255 area x?
Configure VTP, MSTP, NTP, SNMP, and DHCP RELAY on the distribution switch. Configure VTP, NTP, and SNMP on the access switch.
The problems encountered above were finally solved in the project configuration. Everyone can be interested to imagine how we loved it. I believe that there are not many people who can do such projects independently. Therefore, I personally think that he is standard of CCIE. Although many details are in the project, it can be completed through everyone’s efforts. This is the most important part that everyone can understand! For myself, I have learnt a lot and have experience through this project.
