Cisco Expert – My little Baby = Cisco Rack

Posted by Ricardo Martins on October 2, 2008

Hi everyone!

Unfortunately, as much as I would like to write something in my blog every single day, I have been really busy lately studying, working and so on, and soon I will be a daddy. My Lab will be in a month in Brussels, so I kinda need to study all the time.

Anyways here are some pictures of my home rack, all bought in the ebay piece by piece.

Yes, this is where I spend 3 to 6 hours every day after work preparing for the CCIE R/S.

If I pass it, I will ugpgrade the rack for Service Provider, I am also buying Cisco phones (I only have one) and couple of analog phones to connect to 6 FXS ports I have. I will buy a rack server as well to have WIn2003 Server with a CA authority, TACACS, Radius and AD to play with. And of course Call Manager.

Happy studies to everyone…

    nice room and rack,

    i just ordered for two 3550 switches to add to my dynamips.

    my desktop config is:

    Core 2 Quad 6600
    2GB RAM
    Windows Xp 64bit Edition

    still looking out for Quad pci card that i would use and interface the switches to dynamips.

    i would love to know if my desktop config is ok to carry the full lab setup.

    once again nice rack setup and very organised room
