Meraki Lab for 500-220 ECMS

Morning, 

Last week I attended the ECMS 2 and found it to be a brilliant course. 
It has encouraged me to go for the 500-220 ECMS exam. 

Im now looking to build out a Lab and have looked at the Lab guide on the Meraki Study portal. However, the equipment they suggest is REALLY expense. Do I need to go with the exact equipment in the study guide or can I use other Meraki equipment? 

Thanks

I think you need to be a Cisco-partner to schedule slots in dCloud.

Yeah, I think thats the case. I can only access Demo mode and not actually configure anything sadly. Back to the drawing board.

Then I would suggest:

  • 2*MX (any actual model, AdvSec License)
  • 2* MS with routing capabilities
  • 2* MR (any actual model)
  • 1* MV (any Gen2 model)
  • some SM licenses

Yes, will be expensive just for a lab ...

I think you’re correct @KarstenI.  It’s more for demo purposes
