So whats next?
I’ve had a little time readjusting after my exam and I’ve given some thought on what to keep me busy next.
Basically I have 3 projects to keep me busy for the next foreseeable future.
My boss came to me a week ago and tasked me with this.
VRF based path selection
In this post I will be showing you how its possible to use different paths between your PE routers on a per VRF basis.
This is very useful if you have customers you want to “steer” away from your normal traffic flow between PE routers.
CRS/ASR Switching fabrics
At the moment I’m going through whitepapers, Cisco Live 365 presentations and IOS XR fundamentals learning about switching fabrics.
Its a steep learning curve, but in its own way its quite fascinating.
There are a lot of acronyms to be mastered, so later on i will post a list that might serve myself and others when looking at these sort of architectures.
I have a lot of non-technical related projects in the pipeline, but study wise, whats next up for me is the IOS XR specialist exam.
I think the blueprint for it looks interesting and it provides a way for me to learn more about IOS XR.
