CCNA Hardware Question

(Lance F) #1

For the CCNA routing and switching course, is the recommended hardware still what is shown below?

2x Cisco Catalyst 2950 switch (or Cisco Catalyst 2960)
1x Cisco Catalyst 3550 switch (or Cisco Catalyst 3560 or 3750)
3x Cisco 1841 router

Thank you!

Hello Lance

The list of devices you mention are more than enough for studying for the CCNA R&S. Even though there are always advantages to working with actual physical hardware, CCNA R&S can be completed successfully using only Cisco Packet Tracer or GNS3, so there is no need to spend the cash for the hardware.

I wish you success in your studying and future exams!

I hope this has been helpful!
