Finally the day is here- CCIE Collab v2. The new blueprint goes live on July 23 2018.
As expected it seems like the lab will not have any physical devices with everything being virtualized. The clients are remote control of 8845 devices, Spark, Jabber and Cisco Meeting App (old Acano client).
We have the Expressway make its way into the lab along with an Active Directory. Cisco Meeting Server (formerly Acano) is being tested (ouch!) and the traditional UC products are using version 12 (UCM/IMP/Unity Connection and 11.6 in the case of CCX.

More details to come! If you are mid-studies on CCIE Collab version 1 don’t get caught in the middle. Get yourself to a workshop and get it done asap.
