MIMIC® Virtual Lab Cloud (Price: $20 - $90)

Overview

Welcome to the next generation of MIMIC Virtual Lab!

MIMIC Virtual Lab Cloud is an on-line lab accessible over the Internet. It consists of a hosted cloud of CCNA lab pods. Within seconds you can connect to a pod to practice Cisco IOS commands on various Cisco Routers and Switches. It allows a hands-on learning experience without having to buy expensive equipment.

MIMIC Virtual Lab Cloud can be accessed anytime from anywhere through the web browser you are already familiar with. You don't need to install any new software.

MIMIC Virtual Lab is for beginners interested in familiarizing themselves with the complex environment and for intermediate or expert users looking to sharpen their skills and move to a higher level. It provides a safe environment to practice. You don't have to worry about bringing down the equipment/network and affecting other users.

MIMIC allows Network Engineers to practice for CCNA and other certifications instead of just reading instructions. It enables Training organizations to supply a remote Virtual lab to students along with the classroom training or e-learning courses. Students can interact with Routers and Switches, just like with real devices.

The Online Lab

Interact with the routers and switches, just like real devices:

  • Network of 7 devices
  • Cisco Routers (2811, 3640 and 7206)
  • Four Cisco Switches (2950, 3550 (2) and 6500)
  • A large set of IOS Commands for Router and Switch operations
  • LAN, WAN, ISDN and Serial links
  • Ability to Reconfigure the lab

    You can Telnet in to any of these devices as if they are connecting to real devices. You can open as many Telnet connections as the device supports. You can also connect to it using a Console connection. It fully supports the Cisco IOS® command line interface (CLI).

    Device Operations

  • Logging in/out
  • Get into and out of different modes - User, Privileged, Configuration, Interface
  • Set passwords, IP addresses, clock rates, hostname, bandwidth
  • Assign routing protocols - RIP, IGRP, EIGRP, BGP, OSPF, IS-IS
  • Configure IPv4 or IPv6 addresses
  • VLAN configuration; Rapid-PVST configuration
  • Ping/Telnet other devices in the lab
  • Save/load configurations
  • Reload configuration using flash or TFTP protocol
  • Configuration of ISDN, CDP, PPP, Frame Relay ACL and NAT protocols
  • and many other functions required for certifications

    Lab Operations

  • Start/Stop devices, individually or in a group
  • Reconfigure the lab by adding and removing connections between the devices
  • View the topology with connections and addresses
  • Open Telnet and Console sessions

    Web Browsers

    Since the lab runs in your browser, if you have a recent version of one of the major web browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, etc) it does not matter whether you are on running on Windows, Linux, Mac OS, Solaris, etc.

  • The Desktop Lab

    Sometimes you need to practice the lab when you are not connected to the Internet (eg. on a plane). For those situations, you want to run the MIMIC Virtual Lab CCNA on your own desktop.

    MIMIC Simulator Suite

    If you are interested in creating your own devices and topology, the MIMIC Simulator Suite is available separately. You can simulate a lab environment in excess of 10,000 devices. It includes MIMIC Recorder to record Cisco devices to help create the lab topology you need.
