Cisco Virtual Internet Routing Lab (VIRL) is a network design and simulation environment that includes a graphical user interface called VM Maestro. VM Maestro allows you to create complex network topologies in a simple drag and drop manner. This is a great way to get some experience with Cisco gear for CCNP studies.
You get an introductory video showing you how to purchase and install VIRL (requires a $200 annual license from Cisco). Then, you get a series of 42 labs. Each lab contains:
- A video that begins by explaining the lab objective and tasks
- A downloadable .VIRL file (which you load into your copy of Cisco VIRL) that gives you the basic topology and configuration for the lab
- A video that concludes by walking you through a solution of the lab tasks
Also, all videos are downloadable!
