CCIE Collaboration – Written Exam Reading List

Just wanted to share some knowledge about the locations on some useful resources:

This document contains the topics that will be covered by the CCIE Collaboration exam, in my case I have been using an structured approach that goes from weakness I have. here are few (Just not to say all of them)

SCCP Call Flows
MGCP Call Flows
UC on UCS (all fine print and special requirements, many things I didn’t know until now!!!)
Answer Files….Who in earth uses them? (I know I would have saved so much time in past deployments by using them…Cool Stuff!).

SIP Call Flows – Refer to RFC 3665, and Cisco’s PDF on it – Cisco Press sells a book dedicated to SIP, I think I will be getting it soon, I’ just afraid it will be old.
