CCNP LAB

Hi everyone

now that I passed my CCNA, I would like to set up a LAB.

here is what I have

2x 2610 routers

1x 2501 router

2x2900 switches

1x access severs

now I would like to setup a full lab including frame relay , I would like you help

first question is do I have enough devices to make this happen.

2nd= I would like to start by creating frame relay first and then build up on that. unless if you have a better lab or suggestions.

again Thanks

Re: CCNP LAB

CCNP has very little frame relay in it. It is more into redundancy technologies.

For the switching module, you will need 2x layer 3 (3550, 3560 or 3750) switches and I would recommend replacing the 2900s with at least 2950s.

For the routing module, you will need up to 5 routers. The 2610s will do fine. If the 2501 has 16mb ram/flash, you can place 12.3(26) on it and I think it will do BGP. It will do OSPF and should be fine.

There is a excellent lab book available from Cisco to show the setups for your labs.
