CCENT Network Simulator, Router Simulator & Switch Simulator

NetSim 11 Network Simulator® for CCENT software includes technologies for the newly revised Cisco® 100-105 ICND1 exam. The 100-105 Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1 (ICND1®) is the exam associated with the Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician ( CCENT®) certification and is a first step in achieving the Cisco Certified Network Associate ( CCNA®) certification.
Individuals preparing for the CCENT and CCNA exams should consider  NetSim for CCNA, as it contains the NetSim labs for both certifications.
NetSim 11 for CCENT software is the most powerful and versatile  Cisco network simulation product available for IT professionals seeking  CCENT certification. The Boson Router Simulator® software and Boson Virtual Packet Technology® engine set NetSim apart because this technology actually simulates the network traffic of a real network in a simulated network that you can design yourself.

1 star Good software but make sure to buy the CCNA Netsim if you plan on taking both

I bought this Net-sim and was planning to upgrade to the CCNA tier after I passed ICND1, but was then informed that you have to buy the highest tier and can't separately unlock the ICND2 labs with their software... Please beware! The software itself it great though.

I am thoroughly impressed with this simulation. The instruction are clear and well written. I haven't ran into any application errors either. Get this lab if you are looking for hands on experience.

4 stars Easy learning

These Labs are just just fun but makes it easier to take in for exam. Also much better then class learning where instructors run through course work.

5 stars Beneficial
