CCNP R/S Cisco VIRL Labs

Get Hands-On Experience for Your CCNP R/S Studies!

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 download and install Cisco VIRL for free. Then, you get a series of 42 labs. Each lab contains:

  • A downloadable 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.
