CCNP Physical/Virtual equipment
i'm new here and just signed up and finding it difficult to find a very descriptive documentation of what equipment to use for lab work. I like how the CCIE workbook has a session on the workbook for a virtual lab and physical lab build out and what equipment is required.
I feel like this should the first page on the CCNP v2 workbook but i understand if INE wants us to use their rack rentals.
I guess my question is, do we need to study and have serial links on our labs? can we use crs100v via esxi with sub interfaces to connect the virtual world with the physical world and eliminate the need of physical router to do all lab work?
please feel free to point in the right direction if there is another thread with this info.
