Cisco Live 2017 - What Makes NetSim Different

Jun 20, 2017 3:46:32 PM / by Andrew Messier posted in NetSim, Cisco Labs, GNS3, Cisco Live

2 Comments

With CiscoLive 2017 quickly approaching, I'm looking ahead and reviewing my notes from last year. One question we frequently receive throughout the conference is, "What makes NetSim different than ____?" or, "I have real equipment, so why would I use NetSim?" We enjoy answering this question because people normally walk away with a better understanding of our product and plan to use it for themselves or for their students. My goal is not to knock the other options, because there are a lot of great resources out there. Instead I aim to be as informative as possible to help you make a smart buying choice.

If you’re like me, the first thing you want to do when you get your hands on a new toy or technology is to toss the instructions aside and figure out on your own what you can make it do. Sometimes the best way to figure out something new is to find ways to apply it to your existing knowledge or skill set. I remember the first time I tinkered with a Doom level creator way back in the 90s. Without seeking help or tutorials, I immediately started trying to build a Doom-world replica of the interior of my house.

You asked, we answered! When you asked about creating your own topologies in NetSim, we listened and have now released labs to help you do just that. The two new Demo labs we released allow you to work through the steps to create a topology and then configure it. You can do so much more in this lab than simply evaluate NetSim – you can create, configure, modify, and examine everything within your simulated network. You can see the steps in the Demo labs performed in the videos below.
