MIMIC Virtual Lab creates a real world lab environment with a network of Cisco Routers and Switches. It gives hands-on learning experience without buying expensive equipment.
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 gives 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 an ability to practice for certifications instead of just reading instructions. It enables Training organization to give a lab to students with the classroom training or e-learning courses. Students can interact with Routers and Switches, just like with real devices.
Interact with the routers and switches, just like real devices:
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.
If you are interested in creating your own devices and topology, the MIMIC Simulator Suite is available separately. You can simulate a lab environment in excess of 10,000 devices. It includes MIMIC Recorder to record Cisco devices to help create the lab topology you need.
If you are interested in creating your own devices and topology, MIMIC Simulator tool kit is also available. You can simulate as many as 100,000 devices in a lab. It includes MIMIC Recorder to record Cisco devices to help create the lab topology you need.
