Labs and Technical Seminars

Explore the in-depth learning opportunities available to you while onsite at Cisco Live. Labs and Technical Seminars offer a prime opportunity to learn more about the core technologies driving the digital transformation of business.

Technical Seminars (4 and 8 Hours)

Cisco Live’s comprehensive half-day and full-day Technical Seminars address a wide variety of technology areas, design principles, and best practices. Offered only on Monday, January 28, these Technical Seminars complement their corresponding technology breakout sessions. You can book the Technical Seminar sessions as you register for Cisco Live 2019, Barcelona but make sure you register early to reserve your preferred session. Technical Seminars are priced in addition to your Main Conference pass or IT Management Program pass fee.

Instructor Led Labs (4 hours)

Installing and troubleshooting network technologies, performing “what-if” scenarios, and practicing risky network operations in a simulated environment moderated by Cisco experts are the best ways to get critical hands-on experience. Several labs serve as preparation for specific Cisco Certifications exams. Main Conference attendees are entitled to one 4-hour lab session, which can be booked once Schedule Builder opens (subject to availability).

Walk-In Self-Paced Labs

Walk-in Self-Paced (WISP) Labs give you one-of-a-kind hands-on experience on a variety of Cisco products and solutions. These labs let you work through a 30-60 minute pre-designed scenario and explore full configurations and new features of different products and solutions.


Want to try one (or a few) yourself? All WISP labs are available on a first come, first served basis; no scheduling is required. Just approach the WISP labs area in the Hub and start working!
