So, this week I retook my CCNA exam and passed with flying colours. I narrowly missed out on passing the old 640-802 curriculum on the final day I could take it by 1% due to a mis-configured ACL sim. Monday this week, I retook the shiny 200-120 CCNA exam and passed with 93.1% even with that pesky ACL sim in there to really throw me off. Needless to say, I was absolutely ecstatic to finally be on the Cisco Certified ladder.
I am now in the process of getting my CCNA Voice which is a requirement for my job and I have started to build a little Voice lab at home. The lab consists of a Cisco 2800 Router with IPVoice 12.3 IOS loaded and a Cisco 3500XL Switch with inline power. Running off the switch I have two Cisco 7921 IP phones and a bog standard ATA phone. The idea is to firstly fully configure CME and then do various practical configurations such as Hunt Pilots and Call Pickup Groups.
I shall detail my progress here 🙂
