Packet Tracer is a network simulation program that allows students to experiment with network behavior and ask “what if” questions to gain a thorough understanding of what can and can not be achieved with their networks. As an integral part of the Networking Academy comprehensive learning experience, Packet Tracer provides simulation, visualization, authoring, assessment, and collaboration capabilities, and facilitates the teaching and learning of complex technology concepts.

Packet Tracer Network Simulator explains the features and uses of Packet Tracer with the help of practical examples that will help readers to create their own complex topologies and emulate learning environments. Readers will learn about different connectors, start creating network topologies, and configure them with Cisco commands. The book will show readers how to set up wireless devices and how to demonstrate their proximity with physical simulations. By the end of this book, readers will be able to make the best use of their simulator to create and plan limitless network topologies.
