Cisco Packet Tracer

Cisco Packet Tracer is a powerful network simulation program that allows students to experiment with network behavior and ask “what if” questions. As an integral part of the Networking Academy comprehensive learning experience, Packet Tracer provides simulation, visualization, authoring, assessment, and collaboration capabilities and facilitates the teaching and learning of complex technology concepts.

Packet Tracer supplements physical equipment in the classroom by allowing students to create a network with an almost unlimited number of devices, encouraging practice, discovery, and troubleshooting. The simulation-based learning environment helps students develop 21st century skills such as decision making, creative and critical thinking, and problem solving. Packet Tracer complements the Networking Academy curricula, allowing instructors to easily teach and demonstrate complex technical concepts and networking systems design.

Cisco Packet Tracer includes the following features:
  • Makes teaching easier by providinga free, multiuser environment for instructors to easily teach complex technical concepts
  • Makes learning easier by providing a realistic network simulation and visualization environment
  • Provides authoring of learning activities,tasks, labs, and complex assessments 
  • Supports lectures, group and individual labs, homework,assessments, case studies, games, and competitions
  • Supplements real equipment and enables extended learning opportunities beyond physical classroom limitations
  • Simulates continuous real-time updates of underlying network logic and activities
  • Empowers students to explore concepts, conduct experiments, and test their understanding
  • Promotes social learning through a network-capable (peer-to-peer) application with opportunities for multiuser competition, remote instructor-student interactions, social networking, and gaming
  • Supports the majority of protocols and technologies taught in the following Networking Academy curricula: 
    • Cisco CCNA® Discovery,CCNA Exploration, and CCNA
    • Security, and can also be used to teach concepts from 
    • IT Essentials and Cisco CCNP® courses
