I would like to ask if anyone can recommend a really good network lab simulator.
The problem is that I need more hands-on experience. I have plenty of theoretical knowledge and a solid understanding of routing and switching. I have done a lot of operations work, which has helped broaden my fund of knowledge.
These day, however, I would like more PRACTICAL experience actually configuring different technologies in different scenarios and with certain requirements.
Does anyone know or used a really good product? I want something that is really intricate and can really allow someone to grow and learn.
I dont want CCNA stuff. That is way too easy for me. I can configure interfaces and basic routing and switching in my sleep.
I need a CCNP/CCIE level product where I can fool around with BGP and configure it to support multiple Internet access points, duplicate data centers, etc; PIM; load balancing; firewalls; etc.
Then I would recommend the ipexperts especially if you are looking for something more at your pace. Ipexpert gives the lab books and the example topologies for you to follow. good luck with your studies.
