Base 200-301 CCNA XE 2 Router & 2 Switch Kit Primed and Ready


Product Description

Base CCNA XE 2 Router and 2 Switch 200-301 Kit Primed and Ready

*Due to demand and how new these kits are, on orders for multiple kits, there may be a short lead-time (usually only a few days) for shipment of XE kits.*

The XE Elite Series Kits are our top of the line options.  With the exam updates coming in February of 2020, Cisco has made the 4000 series routers the new officially recommended devices.  After reviewing the new curriculum for CCNA, we still recommend the G2 series routers (1941 and 2911) as giving you close to the same capability for a price that is easier on your budget.  Since the 4000 series routers and accompanying NIM-2T add so much to the cost of a lab, we are currently suggesting these towards the most ambitious of students, educational institutions or training academies that must have a direct match to Cisco's specs.

This kit is an EXACT match to the new minimum recommendations provided by Cisco.  Cisco does recommend a 3 router and 3 switch solution (see our full topology XE KIts), but this is their official posting on what they technically want at a minimum.  

This also comes standard with (2) 2960-TT switches that will directly line up with 200-301 recommended devices (as well as the 200-125).  If you want to upgrade these to fully dynamic layer 3 switches, there is a drop down option for the 3560 or 3750v2.  These will be a great option if you are considering moving past the CCNA exam into other certifications such as CCNA Security or CCNP.

 Unlike our other kits which make these optional add-ons, the XE kits, by default, include all the smart serial connections you need for your labs.  These are priced into the kits.  So, there is no need to worry there!

To add the icing on the cake, all of the Primed and Ready kits will also be coming with a free digital download upgrade to our revised Lab Workbook and CCNA eBooks when they are released quarter one 2020!  What do you have to lose?  We will continue to bring you only the best labs on the market that test proven and helped thousands obtain their certifications over 20+ years of being the premiere source for Cisco lab kits.  These are written by not only by highly certified individuals, but by passionate professionals who work with students every day and know what it takes to succeed through experience!

The FTDI Console Cable Upgrade swaps out the classic console cable for this new solution to complete your console connection. This is our newest option for your console connection. This cable has the new FTDI chip installed and eliminates the need for both the classic console connection and the USB-Serial Adapater!  It goes directly from USB to RJ-45! Another great bonus to this, from our testing, is that it has a near perfect success rate in the break sequence working! (used to reset the router, password recovery, etc). This is a big bonus because the converters can be a bit of a pain in that department.  All around, this is an excellent addition to any techs tool box!  *If you do not have a 9-Pin serial port on your computer (most modern computers do not) or a USB-to-Serial converter, you will need this to complete your console (management) connection.  We highly recommend this

Please note that it is company policy not to alter the IOS of any internal flash device.  We provide an IOS backup disc for educational purposes that will have backups of the IOS mentioned in the kit description.  These are for educational training and recovery purposes.
