Building home Lab for knowledge and certification


Building home Lab for knowledge and certification

I'm considering purchasing Meraki gear as a sandbox for training and certification.  


Licensing is prohibitive for someone that wants to set up their own lab environment.   


Does Cisco have a training lab licensing model?





Kind of a big deal

Meraki do giveaway home labs for those that attended their CMNA (ECMS1) training. This consisted of a switch, MX and AP.  Not sure if this is still the case

I'm not an employee of Cisco/Meraki. My posts are based on Meraki best practice and what has worked for me in the field.

I think they have changed it to a single MX67W.

Kind of a big deal

Do you work for a Cisco-partner? There are some Labs available in dCLoud and also in Cisco Devnet.

Kind of a big deal

There is quite a bit of virtual kit in dCloud you can access.

Wow, I've never thought about this question like this before
