I was at Cisco Live this last week, and had the honor to attend the CCIE Collaboration Techtorial with Ben Ng. During one of the breaks I asked him if 2900/3900 routers were really needed for study, and how many 9971's would I need. A lot of us have made significant investments in our home labs and the 2800/3800 series routers are still viable platforms. His response was we would need at least one 2911 with PVDM3's in order to set up a video conference, and three 9971's with the cameras. I hope this helps everyone who is planning on purchasing or upgrading home labs.
