RE: Any predictions for the next CCIE lab update? posted 03/17/2006

I would more likely see the trend continue the way it has...  Return to the
basics.  Aren't there enough difficult topics/scenarios to fill your head
for a while?  ;)  I think there will be a good push toward scenarios
involving some of the basics that take a more serious look at the ability to
really understand HOW they work rather than a collection of funky stuff....
Perhaps that's just my thought though.  But short of configuring VRF-Lite,
what's the point in putting MPLS on the Enterprise-focussed CCIE track?
Other than a select few very large enterprises, the MPLS core structure
evades the knowledge/need of most enterprises.
Wireless would be an interesting addition, but difficult to test from a lab
scenario.  Also keep in mind that the CCIE lab is not a standalone building.
There are working environments so bleeding dysfunctional RF into the
wireless spectrum when working AP's are nearby is likely not a wise idea.

I mean broader scope topics like Wireless or MPLS.
