I did find the recommended device list from Cisco's website.
3725 series routers - IOS 12.4 mainline - Advanced Enterprise Services
3825 series routers - IOS 12.4 mainline - Advanced Enterprise Services
Catalyst 3550 series switches running IOS version 12.2 - IP Services
Catalyst 3560 Series switches running IOS version 12.2 - Advanced IP Services
However they are relatively new products and too expensive... Does anybody have a more pratical list that has older and cheaper devices that are good enough for practice and learning??
What phsical interfaces do the devices have to have for CCIE R&S lab exam? I found some routers on Ebay and they have FE, ATM, ISDN, T1 ...etc. Can anybody please tell me what interfaces are necessary for the exam??
Thanks a lot!
Here is my recommendation on this.
First, if you haven't purchased a CCIE lab practice book - find one and purchased it. There are many reputable vendors including internetworkexpert, netmasters.net, IP Expert, etc. These training vendors know how to properly train you to take the exam. Once you have a training book, then see what equipment they require for you to complete their labs (build your lab from their requirements).
If your doing the CCIE, forget about how this exam applies to the real world (because it doesn't). See the practice lab books to see what I mean.
