CCIE Collaboration Quick Reference Gets Reviewed

Firewall.cx is a Cisco approved reviewer and they get the first copies out of press (no wonder right)! Firewall.cx was kind enough to review CCIE Collaboration Quick Reference. I’m excited and happy to share the news that the book got 5 / 5 (a full score – a bingo) per Firewall.cx review – which is a testament for the title’s approach to CCIE Collaboration exam.

Here’s an excerpt from the review at http://www.firewall.cx/general-topics-reviews/book-reviews/186-certifications-study-guides/1046-ccie-collaboration-quick-reference-review.html

This ebook has been designed for a specific target audience, as the title of the book suggests, hence it cannot be alleged that it is not suitable for all levels of Cisco expertise. Furthermore, since it is a quick reference, there is no scope for something like poetic licence. As a quick reference, it achieves the two key aims:

1) Provide precise information
2) Do it in a structured format

And eliminate any complexity or ambiguity on the subject matter by adhering to these two key aims.

Readers of this review have to bear in mind that the review is not about the content/subject matter and its technical accuracy. This has already been achieved by the technical reviewer, as mentioned in the formative sections of the ebook. This review is all about how effectively the ebook manages to deliver key information to its users.

Happy reading!

Chalk Talk – QoS Considerations for Virtualized Cisco Unified Communications

So, I decided to write about a much coveted topic – QoS Considerations for Virtualized Cisco Unified Communications. This article was published in Cisco Technical Services Newsletter of May 2014.

https://supportforums.cisco.com/document/12180866/chalk-talk-qos-considerations-virtualized-cisco-unified-communications

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Cisco Collaboration (aka Cisco Unified Communications) solutions have come a long way since the conception of IP Telephony. With advancements in technology and the need to reduce economic and environmental impact, virtualization is well on way to become the core of all major technologies including Unified Communications. Cisco Collaboration solutions are now fully supported on Cisco UCS, with backend Nexus, storage, and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) based systems complementing the next gen solutions.

However, with inclusion and dependency on virtualized environments the issue of Quality of Service (QoS) remains to be understood as it is no longer physical switches, NICs, or application instances that are deployed; it is virtual switches (for example Nexus 1000V), virtual NICs, and virtual machines that are deployed as Cisco Collaboration solutions are increasingly virtualized.
