    Default Collab home lab

    Does anyone here have a collaboration home lab? Where did you purchase it?

    At the CCIE level most people build there own lab as they are experienced with the technologies. To answer your question you can buy a powerfull Dell Server first to host your Apps, 64Gig at the min to run 3 clusters and all the apps. Then you can buy 29xx routers as you have the money to add them. You will also need a few phone and POE switches. I would buy the basics you need to test out all the application features, then you use rack rentals for the rest.

    I would get the hardest part is getting CUCM. I really have no idea what that would involve, but I know it must be possible because the UNS manager did it.

    At the CCNP level the 60 day demo licenses included with CUCM/CUC should suffice.

    Prior to 9.x the license structure was much better suited for learning/playing around with the technology. I still can't understand why they didn't just limit the number of devices and stick with a non-expiring demo.
