I need somebody to assist me make a list of the equipment that are essential for setting up a lab(e.g. Linksys Routers, Catalyst Switches and others apart from the obvious which is computers), that will be used in the teaching and training of CCNA students. I intend to have a lab that has twenty workstations and it should have all equipment such that, the students will be guided and taught by a hired instructor who will give them a thorough preparation so that they can sit for CCNA test.
Need a list of the equipment for setting up lab
You will need quite a lot of equipment to set up the CCNA class, some of which are the following:
Since this is a CCNA class and you intend to teach the students about CISCO, I will suggest that you get a CISCO router as opposed to the Linksys router that you have suggested.
You will also need a Cisco switch to connect the 20 computers on the network to the server.
You will for sure a server.
You will network cables and RJ45 connectors. For cables you will need both UTO and fiber.
You will need software called LAN school for teaching the student.
Software called packet tracer will be needed too.
Hope this helps.
