OctaNetworks is a great platform for all CCIE aspirants. I have been longing to clear my CCIE Collab Lab since 4 years and this dream came true with the excellent resources/instructions provided by the team. I was able to get enough lab sessions which actually helped me face the exams with confidence. Special mention and thanks to Mr. Sagar, my mentor at OctaNetworks for all his efforts and excellent training. I highly recommend this institution to all CCIE aspirants.

If anyone want to become CCIE Collaboration lab certified, there is only one Institute in India which is Octa Networks (earlier called as CCIE Home). They have best trainer Sagar Sherla who has both real time Industry experience and also well versed with CCIE Collaboration topics be it V1, V2 and now V3. On the other side they have Owners (Arshad and Joaquim), who themselves are Octa CCIE Certified. They are very down to earth and easily approachable mentors, who can give solution for any problem in tips. I am not exaggerating about Octa Networks, as I my self undergone training from this Institute and benefited a lot in real time. Looking forward to undergo Cisco's latest version V3 under Collaboration track by Sagar.

It was a good learning experience from the "Cisco Collaboration Training topics" from Sagar and Octa Networks. As mentor/trainer Sagar have helped me to understand the topics in a systematic way, illustrated to implement and troubleshoot in solving the issues. I think the highlight is the problem solving given the least amount of time during the session with various mock sessions. I think that's what an engineer need as a take back to the company given the situation of problem solving capabilities during the P1 issues, apply in the situation, resolve them and make the customer experience better and better. All those interesting tips for isolation of issues from the highlevel itself is a time saving one, I really count on it. Thanks to his availability at various times. He was very polite in responding to my call and helped me to understand and resolve the issue, which was the need of hour at that time during my practice. You have a great expertise and awareness on the Cisco Collaboration topics. Gave the sense of trust for me. Thanks for being agile. Thank you Sagar and thanks to Octa Networks for providing a good training and comprehensive content. I wish you and Octa Networks all the very best. Looking forward to collaborate more. Cheers, Mohit
