Additionally, we offer great value for money to all our candidates through Personality development sessions. We are the best CCIE training institute in Mumbai.CCIE Collaboration v3.0 online training is made available at Octa Networks. 


There are various important features to be considered while choosing the best institute for CCIE Certification course preparation. First of all, a candidate should visit the training institute physically to verify the facilities. Some of the key aspects to be considered are:
Real Cisco Devices for training (Lab equipment and availability)
  • CCIE Certified trainers

  • Reviews from existing candidates
  • 24×7 Lab access facility

You need to pass one core exam (CLCOR 300-801) and the corresponding lab exam CCIE Collaboration v3.0 to achieve your CCIE certificate.

Yes. The same technology core exam will serve as the core exam for the CCNP and CCIE certification in any of the certification track like security, Collaboration or Data Center etc.

In the revamped structure, if you pass the core exam (CLCOR 300-801). You are eligible to appear for CCIE lab exam for CCIE Collaboration. It means that once you clear the CLCOR 300-801 written exam, you can appear for CCIE Collaboration v3.0 lab. For all the remaining CCIE certificates like Data Center, Security, Service Provider, and Enterprise there are separate qualifying written exams and respective lab exams.

Once you clear the technology core exam (CLCOR 300-801), you can clear the CCIE lab exam within 3 years of passing the qualifying technology core exam. Plus if you can pass the corresponding technology concentration exam, you will get CCNP certificate too.

Having a CCNA or CCNP certificate is not necessary before appearing for the CCIE technology core exam and the corresponding lab exam. You can directly appear for the technology core exam and then attempt the CCIE lab after clearing the technology core exam.

All the current certificates will be valid for the full three years from the date of certification. After 24th Feb 2020, you will get the new corresponding certificate too which will have the same validity as that of your original certificate. For example, if you have an active CCNA Routing and Switching on Feb 24th, 2020, you will be granted the new CCNA certification. The important thing to note here is that when you are granted the updated certification, your certification validity will remain unchanged.
If you clear the lab exam on or before 23rd Feb 2020 or you are an active CCIE, your suspended year will be converted to an active year. For example, if your active CCIE would have been suspended beginning April 21st, 2020, you will have your status activated until April 21st, 2021.

Cisco press books, latest workbooks prepared & revised regularly by experts.

You may earn between 6,00,000 – 7,00,000 INR which may increase significantly with work experience, improved hands-on skills and other related factors.

OctaNetworks is a great platform for all CCIE aspirants. I have been longing to clear my CCIE Collab Lab since 4 years and this dream came true with the excellent resources/instructions provided by the team. I was able to get enough lab sessions which actually helped me face the exams with confidence. Special mention and thanks to Mr. Sagar, my mentor at OctaNetworks for all his efforts and excellent training. I highly recommend this institution to all CCIE aspirants.

If anyone want to become CCIE Collaboration lab certified, there is only one Institute in India which is Octa Networks (earlier called as CCIE Home). They have best trainer Sagar Sherla who has both real time Industry experience and also well versed with CCIE Collaboration topics be it V1, V2 and now V3. On the other side they have Owners (Arshad and Joaquim), who themselves are Octa CCIE Certified. They are very down to earth and easily approachable mentors, who can give solution for any problem in tips. I am not exaggerating about Octa Networks, as I my self undergone training from this Institute and benefited a lot in real time. Looking forward to undergo Cisco's latest version V3 under Collaboration track by Sagar.

It was a good learning experience from the "Cisco Collaboration Training topics" from Sagar and Octa Networks. As mentor/trainer Sagar have helped me to understand the topics in a systematic way, illustrated to implement and troubleshoot in solving the issues. I think the highlight is the problem solving given the least amount of time during the session with various mock sessions. I think that's what an engineer need as a take back to the company given the situation of problem solving capabilities during the P1 issues, apply in the situation, resolve them and make the customer experience better and better. All those interesting tips for isolation of issues from the highlevel itself is a time saving one, I really count on it. Thanks to his availability at various times. He was very polite in responding to my call and helped me to understand and resolve the issue, which was the need of hour at that time during my practice. You have a great expertise and awareness on the Cisco Collaboration topics. Gave the sense of trust for me. Thanks for being agile. Thank you Sagar and thanks to Octa Networks for providing a good training and comprehensive content. I wish you and Octa Networks all the very best. Looking forward to collaborate more. Cheers, Mohit
