Cisco CCNA & Premium Plus CCNP Enterprise Kit
CCNP Enterprise 350-401, 350-401 ENCOR
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. Another interesting thing to point out it that CCNP and CCIE actually share the same core requirement now. So, by working on your CCNP, you are actually already building your template for CCIE and one step ahead in your progression to becoming a networking master! you are actually already building your template for CCIE and one step ahead in your progression to becoming a networking master! you are actually already building your template for CCIE and one step ahead in your progression to becoming a networking master!
This kit is going to be the cheapest CCNP option for outfitting your lab with all G2 routers. The three included 1921 routers will give you exceptional capability and a seamless experience for CCNA 200-301. These will also carry over be the best economical router you can get that will be as close of a match as you can get without breaking into the expensive XE series routers. Now, Cisco does recommend that you have a security license on your routers for the best CCNP experience. So, we have created an option for you to upgrade one, two or all three of the 1921 to 1941 sec (base and security licensed) routers in your kit. This way you can easily find a great solution to match your budget. We do highly recommend at least upgrading one of the 1921 to a 1941 sec. This way you will have what we like to call a "lead router". The concept here is to keep the cost down, while still having a lead router with the security license to fallback on for those occasions where you would want the license to run security commands. The best case scenario is to have all three routers with the security licenses on them, but this "workaround" is a great solution if you need to save a few bucks.
For the 300-201 CCNA and CCNP 350-401 ENCOR 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!

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!
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, is our CertificationKits ICND1, ICND2 & CCNA Exam Simulator with over 450 different questions that will be similar to those you will see on the actual exam. Finally, our TFTP Server,Subnet Calculator, 35 CCNA Instructional Videos and so much more.

Optional Upgrade To Smart Serial Cards & Cables Includes:
(Replaces 1DSU-T1 cards and WIC-Crossover Cables)
HWIC Modules totaling - 6 smart serial ports
Three Smart to Smart Back to Back Serial Cables
***Why should you consider upgrading from the HWIC/WIC-1DSU-T1 Serial cards to the Smart Serial Cards?***
The HWIC/WIC-1DSU-T1 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-T1 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.
Since this kit comes with (2) high performance 3750v2 switches, these also allow you to explore stacking (stackwise) technology! The switches already have the ports, so if you want to see what they are all about we have the above option to add a set of (2) of these cables.
The Optional Wireless Access Point Option comes with an 1142 Wireless AP and the power brick for the unit, so no PoE required. Once again, you do not need this to get through the wireless component of the 200-301 exam, however, this is a cheap add-on and we absolutely encourage additional wireless exploration to round out your learning. The labs are included, so go for it!
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 CCNP ESCORE & ENARSI Lab Workbooks cover all of the labs you will need for both parts of the CCNP Enterprise Certification. For more information and a full list out of the curriculum see the individual listing for these on our site here.
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/

You can see our Rack options in the slide carousel images above. We strive to create as much of a modular solution as possible. So, you can simply choose no rack and just stack your units on a desktop. If you already have a rack you can just purchase the rack mount kits for the devices so you can attach them. Then lastly, we have three rack options that you can see in the slides. All racks come bundled with the rack mounts when purchased with a kit!
-The Rack Mounts Only option is for people who already have a rack or want to purchase a rack separately from the lab kits with us. These are the brackets you will need to attach to your devices so they can be bolted to a rack.
-The Basic Rack is the simplest option. This is a more organizational solution versus the heavier duty deluxe rack options. This works great as a simple desktop rack on smaller labs where you don't plan on adding an incredible amount of weight.
-The 10U Deluxe and 12U Mini Deluxe are pretty similar.. They are priced the same, so what is the trade-off? The main difference is that the 12U Mini Deluxe has thinner mil rails, which is exchanged for 2U extra height. The 10U Deluxe uses the full deluxe rails that are the thicker mil (heavy duty) and is slightly shorter. The 10U Deluxe also has the thick top crossbeam that allows for expansion units, where the 12U Mini does not. For most CCNA and Cisco labs, you are only using 6U of space in your rack, so either option gives you plenty of room to add units with the vast majority of labs.
-16U Deluxe - This is the full heavy duty option! This rack is a professional grade rack that comes with wheels and extra room for expansion. This rack is also nice because it stands taller than the other racks, bringing the equipment higher to chair level if placed on the ground.
This is a complete Cisco certification kit and much more than just the 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. No other kit on the market offers such an in-depth solution that will have your prepared from every angle!
