Anand Software Launches Networking Labs using Cisco, Juniper and Other Devices

Share

Anand Software and Training is happy to announce the launch of networking labs for Cisco, Juniper, and other network device vendors. These labs consist of real routers, switches, servers, and workstations. The labs would be helpful to candidates desirous of having hands-on experience using various vendor networks such as Cisco and Juniper. Labs for routing, network security, wireless, and voice technologies are available. Check out our website https://www.anandsoft.com for more information.

Though various simulators are available for such labs, the simulators are software only virtual labs and fall short of providing full-length experience that one gets using actual physical networks. Our labs are intended to fill the gap between what you learned using books/lab-manuals/simulators and actual physical labs.

The labs are useful not only for those preparing for certifications also those intending to learn networking and pursue networking path.

Good luck!
