Practice Labs for Cisco

With our Practice Labs for Cisco we cover topics for ICND (1 & 2), CCNA Routing and Switching, CCNA Security and the more advanced topics of the CCNP exams (Routing, Switching and Troubleshooting) all using real Cisco equipment. The associated lab guides cover exam and real world scenarios for each of these technologies which are carried out on real equipment.

Cisco Lab Hardware

Our hosted Cisco hardware is based on widely deployed Cisco products including Cisco 2900 series routers and 3750 series layer 3 switches and ASA5512x firewalls (see hardware list for complete listing of the products in the lab). From the browser you gain access to the console port of each of the devices giving you complete control to carry out either your own configurations, or follow the lab guides to configure specific technologies that are required for the relevant Cisco exams.


  • Wide range of Cisco and other industry standard technologies at your disposal.
  • Choose to follow an exam path or create your own configuration.
  • Unlimited access removes any time pressure and the ability to reset and start over with the click of a button removes any fear of making mistakes.
  • Practice Labs for Cisco enables you to focus on gaining a deep understanding of Cisco technologies.

Cisco Lab Courseware

Our lab guides cover a wide variety of topics, from basic configuration and troubleshooting to advanced topics like routing protocols, NAT, VRF and route-redistribution. Each topic configures the equipment creating a specific network topology that lends itself to that particular task. For example configuring EIGRP may apply a complex configuration creating a local and a wide area network topology enabling you to get a deeper understand of how the protocol works.

Other Practice Lab Technology Paths

We host a multitude of Lab configurations, enabling students to cover courseware and certification paths in Cisco, CompTIA, Microsoft and VMware.

There is no better way to get an understanding of how Practice Labs would benefit your IT learning requirements than getting your hands dirty with it, why not request a demo.
