Network topology simulator

Hey guys,

Im working a project to design an IXP in Bolivia, and need to simulate the network topology, given that the links between IXP and ISP would be supported by BGP4, is there any Cisco software product like packet tracer able to support BGP? or any other software? cheers!

If it is just routers you want to emulate then GNS3 and dynamips is an emulator than runs on a PC which runs the actual IOS so virtually all the commands are available. You need a relatively powerful PC in terms of CPU/memory but it supports complex topologies and as long as the IOS you run supports BGP then dynamips will as well -

GNS3
