    CCIE Service Provider

    Exam Description:The Cisco CCIE® Service Provider Lab Exam version 4.0 is an eight-hour, hands-on exam which requires a candidate to configure, diagnostic, and troublehooot a series of complex network scenarios for a given specification based on dual stack solutions (IPv4 and IPv6). Knowledge of troubleshooting is an important skill and candidates are expected to diagnose and solve issues as part of the CCIE lab exam. The candidate will not configure all end-user system, however the candidate is reponsible for all devices residing in the network.
