Packet Tracer from Cisco
I love Packet Tracer.
You can be as creative as you like. You can purposefully destroy your creation and rebuild it, with a new or existing foundation. It’s like a never-ending puzzle, it can go on forever!
It’s not to difficult to master, as long as you can memorize some coding and commands. Everything else is up to you, you choose how you want to connect. There are open and closed doors, locks and chains, clicks and cliché’s! I’m not just talking about packet tracer any more either, I’m talking about computer networking and network engineering.
Click Here to download the Packet Tracer Topology/File on “Routing & Switching, VLAN, EIGRP, IPv4, DHCP”. It’s fully configured and ready to go!
Networking allows us to share information, ideas, communication, and connections to places we could never visit or see first hand with each other.
Think hospitals, police stations, international news, schools, government, politics, search and rescue teams……..
With out networks and interconnections we would still be living in the stone age.
One of the very first networking capabilities that humans developed would be the voice, a way to communicate with others. Gradually over the course of human evolution we moved to smoke signals, cave drawings, writing on stone tablets……..it’s all there.
Since the industrial age (about 150 years after Gazette’s were common) our communications have exponentially expanded with in a short time compared to were we were a couple of hundred years ago. Click the link to read about A brief history of News Papers. And their Evolution.
We need networks. We need to communicate.
