Cisco CCNA 200-301 & Premium CCNP Enterprise Kit
CCNP 350-401, 300-410 CCNP Enterprise Primed & Ready
The new CCNP Enterprise Certification made a new change to the device quantity. For years the CCNP always required a four router and four switch topology. With the new certification, Cisco has reduced this down to only a three router and three switch topology. This is great news because this means CCNP is now more affordable than ever! With less devices required for your CCNP kit, you can also put your buying power into a lower number of higher end devices. This also means that CCNP now shares the same device count as CCNA and CCNA Security, etc. So, with this lab you can complete multiple certification tracks! *If you were to add an ASA 5505 or 5510 to this lab you would also be able to complete the CCNA Security exam. Another option new to the CCNP certification track is that having a CCNA is no longer a pre-requisite to take the CCNP exam. So, if you have some experience or if you have some some serious ambition, you can skip right ahead to the CCNP exam.
This lab uses the concept of having one 1921 G2, Base Licensed router to act as the "lead" router supported by two very capable 2811 routers. This is a great way to get affordable get a G2 router mixed into your lab and have it supported by two of our "best bang for your buck" 2811 routers. We still think the 2811 router is a great solution when looking to pair affordability with excellent capability. The 1921 will give you a lot of added power to pick up where the 2811 may need a little boost. The 1921 will be able to handle the CCNA curriculum exceptionally well, but Cisco does highly recommend a security licensed router in your lab for CCNP. So, we to recommend that you consider using the option in this lab to upgrade the 1921 to a 1941 with security license to get those extra features. For most customer on a budget and that still want a great experience, we think this is going to be your best pick.
For the 300-201 CCNA exam, the G2 routers are going to be the best case scenario routers that are both affordable and capable of everything you need to learn!
We have worked in partnership with Cisco NetAcad instructors and CCIEs to release our kits that are ready for the CCNA 200-301 & CCNP Enterprise exam. CCNA is hotter and trending more than it ever has! Always remember that as the CCNA certification progresses, it proves more and more that you know your stuff! With this, so does the amount of money you can expect to make as a Cisco Certified Network Engineer! This is one of the fastest growing fields in the world and with that comes the rewards, if you have the drive! Passing the new CCNA demonstrates that you have the skills and know what it takes to advance quickly in the IT world. We promise you, scouts and HR representatives are hunting down qualified CCNAs more than ever before.
All of our CCNA 200-301 & CCNP Enterprise Kits will come with the 200-125 and CCNP Route, Switch, & TShoot study materials to get you started. We have a brand new digital reader program we are very excited about releasing and will be sending out the free digital upgrade to the 200-301 Theory Book, Lab Workbook and Revised Subnetting Guide by mid-March 2020. The CCNA Enterprise Theory book will also come with this lab and be sent out digitally, releasing quarter 2, 2020. So, you get BOTH sets of CCNA study materials and both sets of CCNP study materials! That means extra content and extra labs! What do you have to lose? We will continue to bring you only the best labs on the market! These have been test proven and have helped thousands obtain their certifications over our 20+ years of being the premiere source for Cisco lab kits. These are written by not only by highly certified individuals, but by passionate, hands on professionals who work with students every day and know what it takes to succeed through experience!
Real hardware will always be the best solution to best prepare you for certification and career success! We can assure you that HR representatives will be thrilled to know that you have worked on real equipment and even have your own lab equipment! We are even finding that, “What does your home lab look like?” has become a common interview question as a way to weed out candidates that have never even touched real equipment. Simulators have spent a long time trying to mimic the real thing and after many years, they are still full of problems and capability issues. If you want to do things the right way, that will give you the best edge you can get on all fronts, real hardware is the best way to go. Remember, this is an investment in your future that will pay itself off quickly if you are dedicated. Networking remains one of the fastest growing career paths in the world and there is only room to grow!
Nowhere else can you get our copyrighted CertificationKits Self Study CCNA Lab Workbook that will walk you through 60 different labs! We would confidently argue that we have the best lab workbook on the market that has 1000s of success stories from helping candidates achieve their certification goals!
You will also get our How and Why We Subnet Workbook that will have you mastering subnetting in no time! We find that the number one reason for failing the CCNA exam is due to running out of time. This is almost always because too much time was wasted on subnetting questions and not spent on the more difficult configuration questions where time is needed most. This book does an incredible job of getting you up to lighting speed to whip right through those tedious subnettng questions!
To cover the theory end of the exam, we provide our theory eBook that breaks everything down into a very easy to understand presentation. We have refined everything into a bootcamp, slide-like styled book that doesn’t bombard you with endless, redundant text that dances around the key points. We cover everything and hit the key points right on the head so you are sure to be prepared for anything with a streamlined experience.
Why would you spend hundreds of dollars or more on a lab kit if you don't get the labs that accompany your equipment? Other companies offer training packages, but they are generic or simply selling someone else's product that isn’t designed to work directly with your equipment. To ensure the highest quality, we invest an incredible amount of energy into providing CCNA training materials that are written by us and have been refined for over two decades. We are passionate about providing the best for our customers and love nothing more than when we get an email back from a customer with a snapshot of their EXAM PASSED certificate. Also included, are the terminal emulators you need to make your console connection, our TFTP Server, Subnet Calculator, 35 CCNA Instructional Videos, our CRAM sheet for exam day, TCP/IP Poster and so much more.

***Why should you consider upgrading from the WIC-1DSU-T1v2 Serial cards to the Smart Serial Cards?***
The HWIC / WIC-1DSU-T1v2 Serial cards are a great, budget friendly option for lab purposes. However, if your budget allows, we always recommend upgrading to the smart serial WIC cards and Smart Serial-to-Smart Serial cables. Smart serial is a more current technology that offers a faster DCE/DTE connection that will also use the same clock rate command you will see in all of your labs on every exam, regardless the level. Once again, the HWIC / WIC-1DSU-T1v2 Serial cards will work just fine (the clock rate command is slightly different and that difference is covered in our CCNA Lab Workbook), but if you want to be the most up to date and want the clock rate commands to match identically like you would see when you are sitting your exam, the smart serial upgrade is an excellent choice.
The Optional Wireless Access Point Option comes with an 1142 Wireless AP and the power brick for the unit. Once again, you do not need this to get through the wireless component of the 200-301 exam. However, this is a pretty cheap add-on that will give you an opportunity to expand your knowledge past the exam. There is nothing wrong with being a little over-prepared!
The Supplemental CCNA Training DVD is about 22+ hours of extra CCNA level training in a video format. Do you need this to pass your exam? Absolutely not because all the training your need is already included with your kit! This DVD does cover a lot of legacy material and is not entirely up to date, however it still has a great deal of very useful knowledge that every engineer should know and will run into on the job. We used to sell this DVD for a few hundred dollars, but have priced it super affordably for those who want to widen the scope of their curriculum. There is still a lot of overlap here with the current exam, so you will get a lot of topics covered that are on there, just not every topic.
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.
The Access Server is purely a convenience tool and not a requirement for your exam. While these are common device types in data centers everywhere and a great thing to have knowledge of, they are not a requirement to pass your exam. However, if you don't want to physically move a cable every time you change devices, have an interest in remote access possibilities, or want to broaden you knowledge, an access server is a great device to have in your kit! If you decide to purchase an access server, be sure to also add a transceiver to your cart. This is a cheap add-on that opens up a lot of options with this device. https://shop.certificationkits.com/transceiver/
