Without getting into a vendor pissing contest, you (Brad) may want to
rethink using terms like "no other company in the world offers this" when
you clearly haven't done your homework.

Kanwal,  check around and I think you'll find a couple vendors who offer the
level of quality that you need.  After looking at equipment, which is
certainly a big issue, you need to evaluate the instructor(s) of the classes
and choose what is best for you.

Vendors will always tell you they are the best (so I will spare you the 'we
are the best' speech), so hopefully you have received feedback from other
independent people about this.

For an example of what voice hardware we are using, here's what we have in
our 9 ccie voice racks:

a.. 2 Cisco 2811s running 12.4 (HQ, Branch 1 - PVDM2s) a.. 1 Cisco 3725
running 12.4 (Branch 2 - PVDM1) a.. 1 Cisco Catalyst 3560 w/ POE a.. 7 Cisco
7960G IP Phones a.. 1 Catalyst 6503 w/ Sup2/MFC2/PFC2,6608-T1,6348-RJ45V a..
1 VG248 a.. 1 Server w/ CallManager 4.1(3) Pub and IPCC Express a.. 1 Server
w/ Unity 4.0(5) a.. 1 Cisco 2811 for PSTN/WAN cloud a.. 1 NM-CUE (Cisco
Unity Express Network Module) a.. 1 Server with Call Manager 4.1(3)

If you want to rent a rack session and check it out, you can use this link:

Our advanced lab workbook and technology workbook go in conjunction with our
racks.  In addition, our racks used for remote rack rental and during the
boot camp EACH have their own catalyst 6503s and VG248s so you do not have
to share any equipment with anyone else.  We also have a publisher and
subscriber in our voice lab racks - something which everyone does not offer!
