This is a Cisco CCIE Serv. Provider v5 Virtual Lab kit w/ 22 x CSR-1000v + 6 x XRv Routers
This Lab is based on the new Lab Topology being used by INE for their current CCIE SP v5 Bootcamp.
New Topology uses 2 more XE Routers (22 total) & 2 more XR Routers (6 total) than the old one
CSR Routers are loaded w/ IOS XE 16.9.5, while the XRv Routers are loaded w/ IOS XR 6.1.2
It's built using a quiet Dell R610 Server with 96GB (Max RAM) + 500GB HD running VMware ESXi 6.0
This Lab includes a VM with GNS3 (Graphical Network Simulator 3), optional way to build a Lab
It also includes a VIRL/CML VM (Virtual Internet Routing Lab/ Cisco Modeling Lab)
Please notice that VIRL/CML require a License, which is not included with this item.
However, the Software is installed and is ready to be activated once a License is purchased.
This Virtual Lab kit is based on the recommendations made by INE (Inter Network Expert) for the CCIE SP v5
With this Lab kit you can avoid paying Lab rental fees and will have full 24/7 access right at home!
This Virtual Lab is running VMware ESXi 6.0 U2 Enterprise Version.
Core Routers are instances of the Cisco XRv Virtual Router with IOS XR version 6.1.2
All other 22 Routers are instances of the CSR1000v Virtual Router with IOS XE version 16.9.5
All Router interconnections are done with a combination of Sub-interfaces y Tunnels.
Please notice that these interconnections are not pre-configured.
The Customer is responsible to make all Router interconnections.
Each XRv and each CSR-1000v Virtual Router needs at least 3 GB of RAM to operate
To support 28 Virtual Routers for INE's full Lab Topology the Server needs at least 84GB of RAM. Since this Server has 96GB, it has enough RAM to guarantee a good performance!
