INE's Online Community (IEOC) is a social network designed for Cisco certification candidates to connect, share, and learn in a unique discussion environment. IEOC is hosted by INE, Inc., the world's leading Cisco certification training vendor.
Within IEOC, you can discuss your questions with
thousands of your peers, hundreds of certified experts, and INE's own
team of world renowned CCIE instructors and authors.
allows you to create new posts and reply to other posts like a normal
web forum, but you can also read and submit posts via email. For
example, if you email email@example.com,
your message will be sent to all users subscribed to the "CCIE Routing & Switching Technical" email
feed, and also posted on the web forum as viewable and searchable content.
Keep in mind that this service is not designed to be just for product-specific support. All users, customers, and guests are welcome to join and participate. Simply visit http://IEOC.com, sign up for an account with a valid email address, and click Forum Subscriptions in the Quick Links list on the main page. Forums are organized by topic for certification tracks, and by product for INE-specific topics. The Forum Subscriptions page displays the unique email address that is used to post or reply to
each forum, and a yes/no selection under Subscribe to add yourself to
the email feed.
All certification tracks are also broken down into separate "General" and
"Technical" forums, so if you want to spend endless hours debating the
merits of CCIE vs. PhD, please feel free to do so in the "General"
A good starting place for most candidates would be the CCIE Routing & Switching Technical forum (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This forum, along with the others, is actively monitored by Brian Dennis, Brian McGahan, and Petr Lapukhov.
