Looking to get gear for a CCNP Security lab and would like to be able to use it for CCIE if possible. 3xRouters 1841, 3xSwitches 3750. I also know I need 2xASA 5510 and IPS. will this be good or do I need more gear.


Thanks ahead of time

    Thats a great start. I actually had a smaller lab at home. Something like 1x 1841, an ASA5505, and a handful of 1760's. I labbed smaller configurations during the week. On the weekends, I leased rack time from one of the rack rental sites. I never could stomach the cost of a full CCIE lab.
