This build your own CCNP Primed and Ready Kit is designed to give you the flexibility in choice the best help you build a lab pass both your CCNA, CCNP and even go beyond.  So the lab is two certifications and then you can even select the wireless or voice (make sure to select at least one or two voice capable routers for this- NOT 1841)add-on packs to get started on expanding your skills!

*Even better yet, right now your kit will not only come with the current CCNA eBooks and Lab Workbook & CCNP Route, Switch, TShoot eBooks, but we will also send out a free copy of our new CCNA Labs and eBooks & CCNP Enterprise eBooks via download link /activation code to anyone who purchases a kit before the exam update in 2020. These will be ready Q1/Q2 2020. So, you will be Primed and Ready to go!  What do you have to lose?  We will continue to bring you only the best labs and training materials on the market that are 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 base design will include your routers and switches that will help you get hands on experience in most of the CCNP disciplines for the ROUTE, SWITCH and TSHOOT exams.  This will also work great to get you going on your CCNP core and CCNP enterprise exams coming in 2020. Since you can tweak the kit to your liking, below are details on the upgrade options available.  Remember you can always contact us if you have any questions, need help or want to customize anything further than what you see here.

Router upgrades available:

The base 1841 128/32 router is a dual FE ISR router that comes with two HWIC slots and runs IOS 151-4.M12 ipbase. This router can do your NAT/PAT labs and CCP. The 256/64 upgrade allows you to run IOS 15.1(4) adv ip services (our recommended configuration). The 384/128 upgrade allows for multiple IOSes.

The 2801 upgrade is also a dual FE ISR router that offers two additional HWIC slots over the 1841 with enhanced functionality, dual AIM slots and PVDM slots on the motherboard for future Voice use. 256/64 runs IOS 151-4.M8 adv security.  This is the cheapest router that will get you into the 2800 series models and has great capability at an affordable price point.

The 2811 upgrade can do everything the 2801 can and more. It is more flexible, has more flash memory, has additional Network Module slots and runs a higher version of IOS 15 (supporting more commands). It runs IOS 15.1-4.M10 Advanced Enterprise.  We consider this the best "bang for your buck" router as far as getting the most capability for your money.  

The 2821 upgrade has all the functionality the 2811 does plus two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. This way if you are going to use it in your home network, you can have blazing fast speeds! 512/128 runs IOS 15.1(4). Advanced IP Services for CCNA Security and Advanced Enterprise Services for CCNA Voice.

The 1941 upgrade is available in the base licensed model or base + security licensed model.  For CCNA the base license is just great, but for CCNP or CCNA Security we would suggest adding the security license to match Cisco recommendations as closely as possible.  This is a G2 series router that runs IOS 157-3 Universal, has two Gigabit interfaces and uses HWIC serial cards.  This router is what we consider to be the best case scenario router without breaking the bank.  If your budget allows, we suggest that you try to get one or more of these into your lab.

The 2911 upgrade is very similar to the 1941.  It also runs IOS 15 Universal, has gigabit ports and uses HWIC cards.  The 2911 has more expansion options to allow for more modules and additional voice equipment that the 1941 cannot accommodate.  

  • Switch upgrades available:
  • The base 2960-TT-L supports 15.0(2) IOS and IPv6 addressing and can do very limited Layer 3 static routing.  (Please note that the kit comes with (2) 2960 and (2) 3560 by default)
  • The 3560-TS upgrade supports 15.0(2)SE6.  This is a true Layer 3 switch that supports dynamic routing, PVLAN and QoS.
  • The 3750v2-TS upgrade is the newest series of switches that we offer that you will see more frequently in real world applications. These switches support 15.0.2-SE10, more features than the other switches.  They additionally have StackWise ports, which none of the other switches have so you can stack them and manage them as a single entire entity to make it easier to manage a large enterprise environment.  (If you pick up multiple 3750v2, you may want to consider adding some stackwise cables.  (2) cables for a pair of 3750v2 and (3) cables for (3) 3750v2).  
  • The 3750v2-PS upgrade adds PoE capability to the 3750v2 while still being able to run the same version of IOS 15!  A great add-on if you select the voice or wireless add-on packs.
  • Tested and Guaranteed working!!  The base selections are:
  • Four 1841 Dual FastEthernet 256/64 15.1(4) NAT & Firewall Concept Router
  • Two 3560-TS Switches (can be upgraded)
  • Two 2960-TT-L Switches (can be upgraded)
  • Four WIC-2a/s Serial Modules (which will be HWIC cards for any G2 upgrade)
  • Four Smart to Smart Serial Cables
  • Four Ethernet Patch Cables
  • Ten Crossover Ethernet Patch Cables
  • 8 Power Cords

The wireless add-on pack comes with (1) 2106 Wireless Lan Controller and (2) 1231 Acess Points.  This is all you need to get started learning about Cisco wireless!  These come with the power bricks for all devices, so you don't have to have a PoE switch or power injectors.

The Two Phones Add-on Pack comes with two 7960G IP Phones to get you on your way with voice exploration.  Just like the wireless add-on pack these will come with their respective power bricks.  Now, we do have more voice offerings to expand your voice hardware needs, but these get a little router specific and in depth, so please let us know if you want a more beefed up lab on the voice side of things.  You can also browse some of our additional voice hardware here: https://shop.certificationkits.com/new-category-1/

 

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.

These are the same study guides you would receive if you attend one of our CCNP boot camps. The CCNP ROUTE 300-101 study guide is 273 pages long and follows the format of an official curriculum book in that it has a Power Point slide at the top of each page and text describing the concept below it. The SWITCH 300-115 study guide is 245 pages and the TSHOOT study guide is 173 pages.

So how are we able to deliver all three study guides normally priced $59.97 for the special bundled price of $49.99? It is delivered in a locked eBook format (this is to prevent illegal sharing as we spent over 1,000 hours creating it). We cover all the topics on the new Cisco exams.

This is a complete Cisco certification kit and much more than just hardware to build a lab. Obviously we include the hardware you need but we also include ALL of the study material you need to pass your exam in one kit which we will show you samples of below. No other kit contains a physical 470+ page CCNA Lab Workbook, a physical 100 page Subnetting workbook, our three ICND1, ICND2, and CCNA practice exam simulators so that you can break your exam studies up in the way that best fits your study style. Then we also include our ICND1 100-105, ICND2 200-105, and CCNA 200-125 Boot Camp Study Guides in Windows eBook format. These are not pirated copies of eBooks, but fully licensed copies that are fully in depth and writtten by highly certified techs and instructors who work with students every day. So let’s take a look at some of these samples and then we will get to all of the other materials we include which we have not mentioned yet!

CCNA Lab Workbook

Here is a sample topology from our 450+ page CCNA Lab Workbook that will walk you through over 60 labs. You can see them all listed at the bottom of this page. Notice how we have redundant links and combine both WAN and LAN technologies in our lab as they each use different encapsulation types. These are the types of complex labs that will help you actually learn the topics in the CCNA exam. This is a $44.99 value alone.

Subnetting Lab Workbook

Now let’s take a look at a portion of a chapter in our subnetting workbook by downloading the sample chapter in pdf format here. Notice we explain the theory behind the process and then give you written lab exercises at the end of each section. You will get over 100 practice questions to burn subnetting into your brain! Keep in mind you will receive the full printed book when you order the kit. This is a $19.99 value alone.

ICND1, ICND2, and CCNA Exam Simulator

Now let’s take a look at a sample of our CCNA exam simulator program which you can download a trial version here. Notice that these are not simple questions like what protocol runs on port 21. You have to be able to read and understand the topology, comprehend the different subnets shown and understand what they infer that Cisco is not going to tell you and then draw conclusions based upon the problem that is described in the question. These are not the kind of questions you can brain dump. These force you to learn the concepts covered on the exam and prepare you for the types of questions you will see on the exam. We also provided detailed explanations on why each possible answer is right or wrong. You need to understand why you answered questions incorrectly so you don’t make the same mistake twice! These are so good that when purchased as a solo product we offer our Pass Guarantee. Each one of these normally costs $49.99 each when purchased separately for a total value of $149.97. Compare this to the exam simulators offered by Transcender for $139 or Measure-Up for $99 per exam!

CCNA Exam Simulator

ICND1, ICND2, and CCNA Boot Camp eBooks

We also include Windows eBooks from our ICND1 100-105, ICND2 200-105 and CCNA 200-125 boot camps (these are not pirated eBooks). You can click the link to download a PDF sample of our Advanced IOS Management chapter. We offer these eBooks individually for $29.99 each but we include all three in our kits for free! That is an $89.97 value.
