Guidance for buying a CCIE R&S home lab?

I'm now leaning towards buying the equipment to have it at home - mostly for convenience, the feeling of physical equipment, to be able to sell afterwards, etc.

I'm looking for your advice on where to get it, and what to get.  I've seen the INE lists, and others.  Any good kit makers?  Any bad ones to stay away from?  Or should I go piece meil on ebay?

Looking at ebay, ciscoland.net, ciscokits/certificationkits.com.

Looks like I can get the whole kit for $4000 US or less.

Thanks,

PC

  • You’ll always pay less by piecing the equipment together yourself, however you’ll save a lot of time by buying it all at once.
