Cisco CCENT ICND1 100-101 Network Simulator helps you develop and improve hands-on configuration and troubleshooting skills without the investment in expensive lab hardware. This state-of-the-art, interactive simulation software enables you to practice your networking skills with more than 250 structured labs designed to help you learn by doing, the most effective method of learning. Topics covered include router and switch navigation and administration, Ethernet LAN switches, VLANs and trunking, IPv4 and IPv6 addressing and subnetting, operating Cisco routers, learning IPv4 routes with OSPFv2, configuring and verifying host connectivity, subnet design, VLSM, route summarization, IPv4 Access Control Lists (ACL), Network Address Translation (NAT), IPv6 routing, and network troubleshooting.

Experience realistic network device responses as you perform each lab, which include detailed instructions, topology diagrams, critical-thinking questions, hints, and answers. Working through the labs, you will quickly become proficient with all the common Cisco IOS version 15 router and switch commands on the CCENT exam. Choose from more than 250 labs organized by lab type or by topic. Track your progress with the lab status indicator, and use the new search feature to search for commands and keywords. Review lab objectives and step-by-step instructions within each lab, opening hints and tips sections that help you when you get stuck. Record your observations on device performance in interactive tables. Enter answes to critical thinking questions and get instant feedback to verify your work. Access performance reports in this easy-to-navigate grade history screen, which store all your attempts on each lab. View device configuration details, lab question performance, time to complete each lab, and CLI activity for each device in every lab. Export lab results to PDF files for easy sharing.

Unlike other simulators on the market, the lab scenarios included in the Cisco CCENT ICND1 100-101 Network Simulator are far more complex, challenging you to learn how to perform real-world network configuration and troubleshooting tasks.

Well-regarded for their level of detail, study plans, assessment features, challenging review questions and exercises, video instruction, and hands-on labs, these study tools help you master the concepts and techniques that ensure your exam success.
