    Congrats Nigel, did you take the v1 of the exam?

    Yes, I took v1 - it was what I had been studying for and wasn't sure how different v2 would be.

     

    Must admit I'd rather have done v2 to learn all of the new stuff, but it may have extended studying yet again.

     

    Nigel.

    Re: CCNP Wireless study group revival!

    I also have the v1 CUWSS and IAUWS, I decide towait for v2 of the IUWMS and IUWVN partly due to time and partly due to potential differences from v1 and v2.

     

    Fundamentaly I believe for me it was not worth learning the  IUWVNv1 as the changes were in many ways significant and I felt learning a topic that I felt was difficult, for me anyway, I would get confused with the old and new methods and best practices. Equally there was no QR guide for the IUWVN so I decided to wait to get some steer on what exactly would be required.

     

    Then I have to complete the IUWMS but that QR guide is not available until July so not sure what I will do. Maybe wait or push on.

    v2 is based on 7.0 code.

    I went on the CUWSS v2 training course 2 weeks ago, and have the training material (Student/Lab Guides).

    I'm not sure what I can disclose as far as the content on the training course, but I will be ordering the QR guide as well.

     

    I will be focussed on studying for the the CUWSS v2 exam.

    Re: CCNP Wireless study group revival!

    Personally I think we could kick this off now.

     

    Certainly for the IUWVN, if not I will statrt reading, again, the VoWLAN design guide. The areas I really need to get my head around are the R&S side of multicasting.

     

    Just throwing this out there as well. What lab access do the people of the group have and what experience. OK I know Nigel, or I know of him and he already has the CCNP so will be a valuable addition and I believe he has lab access. I know Jared who works with this every day.

     

    My personal experience, currently working at Cisco with a personal lab and some Cisco equipment available, ten years wireless experience, loads on surveying and security. Less experience with the MSE and Voice. I think I should be ok with the mobility exam but have quite a bit to study for the voice.

     

    What does everyone else feel.

    Re: CCNP Wireless study group revival!

    With Cisco Press not supporting this certification, I am going to just read this group for my own edification at this point. Right now my current focus is BYOD / ISE, so while wireless does come into play, I cannot take on another cert path while still trying to knock out my CCIE.  I should have made my intentions clearer from the get-go.

    Yup - that is my focus at my new gig. I am actually going to the ISE class for ATP in two weeks. Last week I was out at Zenprise's HQ in SF taking their partner course, very cool product.  With all of that said I think I am going to have to a balancing act between security and mobility for a while.

    Re: CCNP Wireless study group revival!

    Yeah I think that our CCIE Security just got done taking all of the stuff for ISE. We needed to get it in place for a customer that is going to be having it installed. It does indeed seem like it will be a really nice product for sure, just from what I know of it, and it is not near as much as he does obviously.
