Currently working at a NOC which involves programming phone using both CUCM and Unity on a daily basis. Wanna ask those who already took the exam if it is necessary to have physical lab. I also have access to company routers/ switches also- but in read-only mode, along w/ (video) phone of different model.

Also, my goal is to eventually take on a roll of Network technician/ engineer, is a CCNP , then, better to have than Voice. Although I get to work w/ Voice team regularly. My only concern is having a CCNP and can not get the next job working directly w/ switch and router.

    Well, you can do lots of things in virtual env as you probably already know, like running demo cucm/unity in vm. But you would still want to lab with a physical switch + phones and or branch configs between multiple call managers for example.

    my 2 cents.
    2015 goals - ccna voice / vmware vcp.
