 Hello Guys! How are you? hope all of you are well. Because this time we will discuss Cisco Packet Tracer, by the way, does anyone know what Cisco actually is? If not, you can see the previous article Understanding and Functioning Cisco (FULL). Okay, without wasting time, let's get straight to the discussion. Cekidot!

What is Cisco Packet Tracer?

Packet Tracer is a simulator of Cisco network tools that is often used as a learning and training medium, and also in the field of computer network simulation research. This program was created by Cisco Systems and is provided free of charge to faculty, students and alumni who have participated in the Cisco Networking Academy. Packet Tracer's main goal is to provide tools for students and educators to understand the principles of computer networking as well as build skills in the field of Cisco networking tools.

Cisco Packet Tracer Functions

1. Packet Tracer allows you to configure and build your network with an easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface. It provides practical experience that you can apply in class and even at work

2. Practice and learn new skills that you can use to complete real-life projects

3. Support multiple CCNA Routing protocol technologies, security, and other critical IT resources

4. The activity wizard allows you to get real-time feedback to enjoy a comprehensive learning experience

5. You can use it to monitor the logistics of parcel transfers, data transfers and more in real time

6. The community feature makes it easy for you to share ideas, practice, and learn from other instructors

7. Allows collaboration between multiple users and friends, offering a competitive learning experience

* End Devices: Contains various kinds of devices such as PCs, Laptops, Servers (generic), IP Phones, voip devices, Phones, TVs, etc.


* WAN Emulation

* Custom made devices: Devices that we can custom according to our needs or desires

* Multiuser Connection

Realtime Simulation Bars

This feature is used to view network simulations and data packets specifically


Cisco Packet Tracer is an application for creating network simulations or for creating a network topology. Besides that, Cisco Packet Tracer is also equipped with various features to make it easier for us to learn.
