Hi ,

I am planning to approach to ccie security lab exam within 12 months.

I am wondering , with the new Asa-5580 , is the vpn concentrator going to be out the lab exam ?

It is really important , i must know if i buy or not a unit for practice labs.

Also i am interested if NAC and MARS appliances are going to appear in the lab exam ?

Thanks ,


I have this problem too.

The VPN Concentrator went end of sale awhile ago so it will be phased out of the lab. I'm sure NAC and MARS will be added, but only Cisco knows when. Realistically if you plan on getting your CCIE Security you'd better know these technologies/devices.

cisco gives a 6 month lead time on all lab changes, and the changes usually come at the first of the year or mid year. Although only Cisco knows what changes are in store, I wouldn't be surprised if the current blueprint is good until the end of this calendar year.

You can get a VPNc 3005 on ebay for $300.

It is worth it to learn VPNc 'cause it will

help you in the long run.
