Course Details

CCIE Collaboration v3.0 certification is the new avatar of core knowledge and practical skills in the management of the most complex scenarios of the IT Collaboration of a network lifecycle (Designing, Deploying, Operating & Optimizing). IP Rulersprovide CCIE Collaboration v3.0 training just as per the course described by the Cisco Collaboration Certification blueprint.

The new method adapted for CCIE Exam is given below, which have vital parts known as Design, Deploy, Operate & Optimize.

The CCIE Collaboration certification is achieved with two exams:


350-801 CLCOR: Implementing and Operating Cisco Collaboration Core Technologies

The 120-minute, Implementing and Operating Cisco Collaboration Core Technologies v1.0 (CLCOR 350-801) exam is associated with the CCNP Collaboration, Cisco Certified Specialist (with core subject Collaboration), and CCIE Collaboration Certifications. It tests a candidate’s knowledge of implementing and operating core collaboration technologies. Clearing this exam gives a Specialist Certification, so as to recognize all accomplishments of the candidate.


CCIE Collaboration v3.0 Lab Exam

The 8-hour Cisco CCIE Collaboration (v3.0) Practical Exam is a hands-on exam that requires a candidate to plan, design, deploy, operate, and optimize network Collaboration solutions according to the given scenarios.

CCIE Lab Exam summary

CCIE lab exam has two modules. Module 1 will be a 3-hour, scenario-based session, which will discuss the Design part. Module 2 will be a 5-hour session to discuss Deploy, Operate & Optimize parts of the exam.
