This document describes the activation process for Cisco software on Cisco Integrated Services Routers (ISRs) and Cisco Integrated Service Routers Generation 2 (ISR G2). Cisco routers support Cisco IOS software entitlement and enforcement on various platforms. This document supports the following products:via cisco.com
Updates to the documentation on IOS Licensing. I not enjoying learning about this crud and there are plenty of caveats and tricks to learn if you are designer. It’s really easy to get the bill of materials wrong.
- IPexpert, Inc. Launches High-end Consulting Division ñ Platinum Solutions Group ´ CCIE Blog
Platinum Solutions Group (PSG) provides high-end consultative services for small to medium business and enterprise-size corporations. Services consist of Planning, Designing, Implementing, Support, and Optimization of large-scale intra, and internetworks. PSG will also provide training for clients who require customized education. PSG will focus its efforts on the Data Center Virtualization, Network Security, Service Provider and Unified Communications arenas.
IPexpert moves to diversify their income stream. Natural given that Cisco appears to be actively trying to exclude them from the market by promoting their own program. Also, helps to smooth the revenue as the training market is probably volatile. Some of those trainers are expensive to have on staff, and rightly so.
Note: You probably shouldn’t use the word “focus” and then cover 80% of the possible network consulting technologies.
- Cisco Application Control Engine (ACE) Configuration Examples – DocWiki
This wiki provides configuration examples for a wide range of ACE features and implementations. Note that this is not an exhaustive list of configuration examples and we plan to update the examples as time permits. Please feel free to add your own configuration examples so that all ACE users can benefit from them. If you do contribute your own example(s), please change the IP addresses in your example to private or reserved addresses in the following ranges (10.0.0.0. to 10.255.255.255, 172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255, and 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255) and change your host names to ones that are generic (for example, SERVER1).
- GNS3 on Windows 7 The IPexpert Way ´ CCIE Blog
GNS3 is a front end for Dynamips. Dynamips, which was written by Chris and released at http://www.ipflow.utc.fr/blog/, is the backend that emulates the router platforms. Sadly the final version released is 2.8 RC2. Reportedly Chris had worked on some enhancements after this release but those enhancements never made it into public hands.
If you are starting out on GNS3, this is the place to start. Once you have the basics and understand how GNS3 works in Windows, THEN upgrade to a MAC or Linux and buy that special machine. Don’t buy the machine first. Start with GNS3 today.

- Question: Do we care that Carriers / Service Providers are highly available ?
This is just an unformed question or thought. Carriers and Service Providers are very big on how reliable their services are. Achieving this level of availability costs a lot of money. And we are talking billions of schmackos here.Therefore, why aren’t we asking the carriers for low cost, low reliability circuits and save money ? If we are going to use redundant routers, switches, WAN circuits, then why waste money on expensive, high reliability services that we don’t really need ?
In reality we don’t trust the Carriers to deliver. Why ? Because we always purchase redundant paths through the network.
I think it’s a much better design concept.
