    Default [TUTORIAL] Cisco Collaboration in EVE-NG

    Hey guys,

    Recently managed to wrap up my Route/Switch journey and quickly set my sights on the CIPTV2 (300-075) which is required in order to bump the CCNP Voice to Collaboration and not loose the cert. status.

    I was also glancing over the CCIE Collaboration v2.0 lab details and saw that a lot of it can / should allow virtualization. I was also involved in a project at work for training our non-Cisco engineers and bringing them to the dark side of voice so about 1 week into toying around & reading stuff up, I managed to get EVE-NG set up to allow creating Collaboration sandboxes with (but not limited to) the following devices:

    - CUCM
    - Unity Connection
    - IM & Presence
    - UCCX / Finesse
    - Cisco Meeting Server
    - Expressway Core/Edge

    Naturally, all the other types of images that EVE-NG supports (Nexus, IOS, IOU/IOL, ASA, F5, Windows Clients & Win Server etc.)can be integrated into these voice topologies to create some awesome labs.

    Anyway, here's the write-up I did on request if anybody wants to try setting up their own Collaboration lab with EVE-NG:

    Good luck! Onto CIPTV2 now!

    If you pass the CIPTV2 exam before your CCNP Voice expires you should be good to go. Since Cisco is retiring the Voice track it is good to double check the expiration date of your CCNP Voice Certification in the Certification Tracking System. The expiration for my CCNA Voice was April 3, 2018, because Cisco retired this track. So, unless the CCNP Voice is still valid you might have to pass both CCNA Collaboration exams first, and then pass the four CCNP Collaboration exams, which are now $300 a pop.

    Enjoy! Me & the guys at work managed to get some really nice topologies up & running with several UC / VoIP platforms alongside Cisco inside EVE-NG. It's awesome!

    That virtual lab sounds fantastic, but does it work without expensive licenses from Cisco?

    CUCM, Unity, IM&P, UCCX/Finesse work with grace licenses. Tandberg stuff (Expressway, VCS, TPS, Conductor) need licenses; a NFR kit can help out
