The most effective router and switch simulator for hands-on CCNA ICND2 skills enhancement

Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching ICND2 200-101 Network Simulator helps you develop and improve hands-on configuration and troubleshooting skills without the investment in expensive lab hardware. This state-of-the-art, interactive simulation software enables you to practice your networking skills with almost 150 structured labs designed to help you learn by doing, the most effective method of learning. Topics covered include router and switch navigation and administration, SNMP, syslog, IOS licensing, VLANs, STP, Etherchannel, EIGRP, OSPFv2, OSPFv3, IPv6 routing, HSRP, serial and serial link configuration, Frame Relay, VLSM route selection, password recovery, Netflow, GLBP, path analysis, routing analysis, IPv4 and IPv6 addressing, NAT, and network troubleshooting.

Experience realistic network device responses as you perform each lab, which include detailed instructions, topology diagrams, critical-thinking questions, hints, and answers. Working through the labs, you will quickly become proficient with all the common Cisco IOS version 15 router and switch commands on the CCNA Routing and Switching ICND2 exam. Choose from almost 150 labs organized by lab type or by topic. Track your progress with the lab status indicator, and use the new search feature to search for commands and keywords. Review lab objectives and step-by-step instructions within each lab, opening hints and tips sections that help you when you get stuck. Record your observations on device performance in interactive tables. Enter answers to critical thinking questions and get instant feedback to verify your work. Access performance reports in this easy-to-navigate grade history screen, which store all your attempts on each lab. View device configuration details, lab question performance, time to complete each lab, and CLI activity for each device in every lab. Export lab results to PDF files for easy sharing.

Unlike other simulators on the market, the lab scenarios included in the Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching ICND2 200-101 Network Simulator are far more complex, challenging you to learn how to perform real-world network configuration and troubleshooting tasks.
