Visibility: Open to anyone

    Hi everyone,


    This is a study guide for the new CCDE v2.1 written exam which includes "Evolving Technologies". It is also relevant for all CCIE version X.1 tracks (CCIE RS v5.1, CCIE SP v4.1, CCIE Security v5.1, etc). Because the document is multi-purpose, I kept it generic yet detailed. This is a FREE document with no copyright or distribution restrictions, so feel free to share it with your friends. I respectfully ask that you direct your friends to this page rather than send them the file directly. This affords them the opportunity to comment and ask questions.


    The newest version (December 2017, v1.3) has additional information on the following topics:


    - Added minimal working Openstack example with Nova creation

    - Added minimal working Jenkins example with Github and AWS EC2 integration

    - Added minimal NETCONF/YANG demonstration on Cisco CSR1000v

    - Added Viptela SD-WAN high-level description

    - Added additional details and references on YAML and JSON

    - Added reference to Pete Lumbis CI/CD repo using Gitlab

    - Corrected Ansible playbook syntax

    - Corrected NETCONF/YANG vs REST/HTTP claim

    - Discussed Scrum and Kanban agile methodologies



    Here are some candidate topics for the next version to be released in June 2018. Many of these are hands-on and require extensive testing/research to properly document, so no guarantees that they'll make it in the next version:


    - IOT RPL routing example (very difficult to find HW/SW support)

    - IOT 6LoWPAN routing example (very difficult to find HW/SW support)

    - Openstack with Neutron networking

    - Minimal working OpenDaylight example

    - Jenkins with more advanced SW builds/labels

    - Minimal working Viptela example


    Happy studies, and please let me know what topics you'd like to see added in the future! Special thanks to Angelos Vassiliou for his continued support in reviewing these updates.
