Comparing our kits, let me explain…
Are you are looking to get your Cisco CCNA Routing & Switching certification and want more enhanced equipment over what our CCNA Routing & Switching Basic Lab Kit has to offer and unfortunately our CCNA Routing & Switching Advanced Lab Kit is not in your budget? Then our CCNA Routing & Switching Standard Lab Kit is your perfect choice!
The CCNA Routing & Switching Standard Lab Kit is perfect for those who want to stay within the CCNA certification badge level for a while before going for your CCNP. Advantages over our CCNA Routing & Switching Basic Lab Kit are:
- Upgraded routers
- Upgraded switches
- An updated access point.
You can use this CCNA Routing & Switching Standard Lab Kit for many of the new Cisco badges within the CCNA certification level without having to repurchase a lot of equipment!
Simulators? Emulators? What you should avoid when buying a lab…
Simulators are very limited as to what they can do and emulators require you to “acquire” copies of the Cisco IOS’ and some hardware and then “rig” it all together. But neither can provide you with the experience that real equipment can. Having a complete lab made up of real Cisco equipment provides you with the best “real-world” experience that is second to none!
Above all, DO NOT get taken by the cheap Lab Kits offered by other companies on their websites, Amazon or eBay that only have one or two routers with one or two switches. These cheap kits are NOT complete lab kits as claimed and they fall short when you start configuring labs. This is why we do not offer Lab Kits with less than three routers and three switches. In addition, make sure that your CCNA Routing & Switching Lab Kit has at least three 1800 or 2800 series of routers as the 2500 and 2600 series do not meet the current exam requirements.
Of course you could buy your lab kit piece by piece off of ebay; but…
- What would you get?
- Will it be the right equipment or will you have to return it or resell it yourself?
- What if it fails nine months down the road; who will be there for you?
- What if you have a technical question; where will you get support?
Buy your CCNA Routing & Switching Standard lab kit from us and you will have none of these worries; WE ARE HERE FOR YOU!

Our CCNA Routing & Switching Standard Lab Kit comes complete with everything you need to start studying for your CCNA R&S career. With one Cisco 1941 router running IOS 15.7 and two 2801 routers running IOS 15.1 and they have…
… allowing you to create many different configurations and complete most of the labs that are in the video training course that’s included with your lab kit.
In addition you get two Cisco layer 2 switches and one Cisco layer 2/3 switch:
Many other kit provider’s use lower end 2950 switches with the Standard Image IOS as does our CCNA R&S Basic Lab Kit. These switches are very limited and cannot be upgraded to the Enhanced Image software.
- One Cisco 3560v2 PoE (Enhanced Multilayer Software Image) Layer 2/Layer 3 switch running IOS 15.0
- Two Cisco 2960 LanLite Layer 2 switches running IOS 15.0
The 3560v2 switch is a layer 2/layer 3 switch with advanced QoS, rate limiting, ACLs, basic static and Routing Information Protocol (RIP) routing functions, advanced hardware-based IP unicast, IP Multicast routing as well as policy-based routing (PBR), IPv6 routing and IPv6 ACL.
The 2960 LanLite switches feature voice, video, data, highly secure access, delivering scalable management. Enhanced security including Cisco TrustSec for providing authentication, access control and security policy administration.
Additional Equipment Included:
The new exam will also cover wireless technologies and security. We are including a Cisco Aironet 1242 802.11a/b/g Access Point which teaches you technologies such as AES encryption, WEP and WPA security and much more.
Four HWIC-1DSU-T1 serial cards and two WIC-1T serial cards. This allows you to gain knowledge on both types of serial interfaces to learn Frame-Relay and T1 connections. (Frame Relay is no longer on the exam however, it’s still good to learn it). Of course there are plenty of cables to wire up all those ports in your labs.
Additional Training Information:
Training is provided by CCIE Chris Bryant’s video CCNA R&S course which covers the current 200-125 Routing & Switching exam PLUS we include Chris’ CCNA Security (210-260) video course at no charge to you.

Additional configuration information:
*To configure the routers and switches, you need a computer with a DB9 serial port to use with the console cable. However, most of today’s computers do not have this port. Please note that when resetting a password on some Cisco devices, you need to press CTRL-BREAK while the unit is first powered on. Many of the “cheap” USB to serial adapters do not pass this code, ours does! You can find it by clicking HERE!
