Network Simulation with Cisco Packet Tracer

A Workshop

Are you looking for a practical way to explore networking without having to invest in high end equipment?Peter Harper

This presentation will introduce the concept of exploring network simulations using free software – Cisco Packet Tracer.

This software allows students and teachers the ability to quickly and easily setup a network structure and configure the network to allow connectivity between devices.

Packet Tracer is handy to introduce networking equipment and understand their purpose.

Packet Tracer will also be used to demonstrate network configuration and network communication.

Cisco network icons will also be discussed as well as various networking components for best practice in secondary courses.
