Cisco Packet Tracer is a network simulator. With this powerful software, users are able to learn all network topics in a simulated and secure environment without the need for high costs. This program is one of the popular programs in the field of simulation and training of network topics because it has provided all the necessary capabilities for this work well. Packet Tracer can simulate, visualize and evaluate different networks. Experts and network enthusiasts can design any type of network topic with a little time spent in this program and by giving their specifications, they can simulate the network behavior against their wishes.
One of the main advantages of using simulation software, especially in the field of networking, is reducing costs and greatly increasing the speed of learning. Imagine for a certain scenario you need to test an intranet that is supposed to connect local area networks to several different cities. Apply some change in some part of the network now. What results will you face? The answer to this question definitely requires time and money, and the past of this security is not enough. But with the help of this program, from a small Lan network to a Wan network with infinite nodes, you can connect to each other with different topologies. Swap different devices on the network and infinite other parameters and modes. Finally, with the push of a button, view the behavior and status of the network.
Features of Cisco Packet Tracer:
- Simple and tidy graphical environment
- Easy learning program
- Ability to simulate small and large networks
- A very useful tool for teaching various network topics
- Support for infinite nodes in networks
- Graphic display of different nodes in the network and data packet transfer
