Jay Franklin, CCIE# 50944
Ever since I passed my CCNA in Baghdad, I've had my sights on CCIE. I built a lab out of 3640s with everything being shipped to Iraq to study. Along with the gear, I have used INE materials the entire way. The CCIE changed twice since I started my journey in 2007, but I have stuck with it. I have even been pestered at Cisco Live by industry experts for continuing to go to the CCIE party without having my certification. Next year, I'll be able to provide my own "date" to the party. I couldn't have done it without the materials from INE. Thanks Brian D, Brian M, and the team! INE rocks!
