Lab Setup for Demo


We are setting up a lab for demo purposes for potential customers. We have got the following equipment:

2 MXs

2 Switches

2 APs

1 Camera


What would you suggest to be the best setup of these devices to cover various scenarios ? Something that would allow to showcase as many capabilities/different customer requirements as possible?

If we try to simulate one branch site and one DC site, is the recommended design to have MX in NAT mode in branch site and one-arm-concentrator mode at the DC site?




Kind of a big deal

Hi @MAzad ,


Why not take a look at Cisco dcloud -


They have all this pre-built and ready for you to demo to your customers.

Thanks UCcert for this info. The lab will also be used for testing different scenarios as we deploy solutions for customers in future which is why we went with a dedicated lab.
