I'm just starting my studies for my CCNP. I need some lab hardware, I currently have no equipment. Please advise on specific hardware components that I should have. Yes, I am on a budget, but I can spare enough to get the minimal equipment.
Also, I found a good deal on a set of 2503 routers. Would these be a good pickup for my CCNP studies?
Thank you in advance for your specific suggestions! I appreciate your time.
