MIMIC Virtual Lab CCNA is sold in two versions to training providers:

  • MIMIC Virtual Lab CCNA and
  • MIMIC Virtual Lab CCNA Plus.

While they share most features, the differences are detailed below.

MIMIC Virtual Lab is for beginners interested in familiarizing themselves with the complex environment and for intermediate or expert users looking to sharpen their skills and move to a higher level. It provides a safe environment to practice. You don't have to worry about bringing down the equipment/network and affecting other users.

MIMIC gives Network Engineers the ability to practice for CCNA and other certifications instead of just reading instructions. It enables Training organizations to supply a Virtual lab to students with the classroom training or e-learning courses. Students can interact with Routers and Switches, just like with real devices.

The Lab

  • Network of 7 devices
  • Cisco Routers (2811, 3640 and 7206)

  • A large set of IOS Commands for Router and Switch operations
  • LAN, WAN, ISDN and Serial links
  • Ability to Reconfigure the lab

Users can Telnet in to any of these devices as if they are connecting to real devices. You can open as many Telnet connections as the device supports. Users can also connect to it using a Console connection. It fully supports Cisco IOS® software.
