CCIE SPv4 on CSR1000v

Is it possible to create CCIE SP v4 topology by using esxi and CSR1000v? The same way as the R&S v5 is created.


  • Yes, it is. The current INE SPv4 rack consists of CSR1000v and XRv. You can practice most of the technologies on CSR1000v alone. However, you will still need to practice IOS-XR syntax and caveats when preparing for the lab.

    One benefit of the CSR1000v is that it does not have some of the limitations of XRv. For example, with CSR1000v L2VPN works both in control and dataplane - XRv only works in the control-plane. Same is true for some of the mVPN technologies.
