The best way to learn about networking is to do it. Hands-on equipment gets students started, but is limited to the number of devices in the lab.That’s why the Cisco Networking Academy curriculum includes Cisco Packet Tracer, an innovative network configuration simulation tool used for teaching, gaming, and assessment. Packet Tracer encourages students to explore all their “what if” questions.
Packet Trace is a Network Simulation Software. It is an visual, interactive teaching and learning tool.It allows users to create network topology, configure devices, inject packets, and simulate a network with multiple visual representations. This technology is a way to expand teaching and learning experiences beyond the limitations of a traditional lab environment.
If you are planning to prepare for CCNA,Packet tracer is a good choice for you.
