Do I keep my Home Lab or Sell it on and use GNS3 (now that Switching is around the corner)?
I have been debating on selling my Cisco Lab in favour of running everything in GNS3.
Until now I have retained it purly for the switching hardware and voice cards. I have built it up over the years and it has got me through several certifications but I don't really have room for it any more, and it seems the more newer converged network technologies are not going to be compatible with some of my hardware and I will have to purchase more hardware to supplement my further learning (CCDP, CCNP Voice, CCNP Security and eventually CCIE R&S).
My lab consists of the following:
1 x 8 Port 2940 switch
1 x 2509 Access Server (with Octal)
2 x 24 Port 2950 switch
3 x 3550 48 Port EMI Switches
1 x 3550 24 Port EMI PoE Switch
3 x 2811 Routers
2 x 2621 XM Routers
1 x 3640 Router
1 x c871w Integrated Services router
2 x PIX 501 Firewalls
1 x 5505 ASA Firewall
1 x c7940 IP Phone
1 x c7960 IP Phone
8 x WIC 1T
2 x VWIC2-2MFT T1/E1
+ various other cisco interface cards and cables........+ 2 non cisco switches
I reckon I can get a good price for it given the spec and the condition of the kit but I don't want to find myself having to rebuy everything again down the line for future study!
