What do you mean? Jabber ties into Outlook fine in my experience. What's missing?

Re: Cisco Jabber

I run Lync on a Mac. There's also an Android app (iOS too, I'm sure). It isn't supported on Linux though (but you can use another XMPP client for the basics, IIRC).

Re: Cisco Jabber

It's relatively popular. It is in direct competition with Lync. It was all we used at our last company, and, honestly, I hated it. The Mac version was decent, but the Windows version sucked. The latest beta I tried fixed a lot, so it's definitely getting better. I greatly prefer Lync though.

Re: OSPF DMVPN

Area 0 should be the DMVPN cloud. This allows you to have every site be its own area and summarize into the cloud. Also, if you need decent scale, EIGRP is better for DMVPN.

Re: Web content filtering

We've been using Palo Alto, and for the most part it does a great job. My only complaint is that our boxes had a poor architecture in that most of the CPUs were dedicated to the data plane, with very little of it dedicated to the management plane. As a result, it takes hours to commit a change, wit...

Re: Catalyst or Nexus - which models?

I'm not clear on your design any more. Have you gotten a VAR involved? Just find someone who knows what they're doing to help you before you start buying shit and trying to make it work.

Sure, why not. You don't have to do a cert to learn it though. You could grab some INE WBs and use that to learn random Nexus stuff.

Fuhh yeah just got the specs on them today. The main difference I can see between that and a 6k is the native fc and vxlan support which is huge. Unless I missed something else.

Also there is a third generation 5k coming out within a few months. I would wait to get that :D

Which one? Keep in mind that there isn't a lot of feature-parity, especially with the 35xx.

Re: CCNP-Data Center: Which tests 1st?

Doesn't really matter. Pick the order you think works the best. IMO, Design is easier if you don't have much experience with the technology. Troubleshooting requires a great depth of knowledge.

If you want a solid firewall that does URL/content filtering on-box, look at Palo Alto (or Fortinet).

that is so dumb. There goes the business case for getting one of them integrated bad boys. It's not really, it's quite clever when you look into it. For instance, terminating the capwap tunnel at the edge allows you to apply granular QoS at the edge, also Netflow visibility. Another not so obvious ...
