How to practise on Brocade switches

Hello,

 

Is there a software emulator/simulator so one can practise configuring a Brocade switch? For example Cisco Packet Tracer or GNS3 can be used to experiment with Cisco equipment. 

 

Thanks.

Re: How to practise on Brocade switches

Hi John, this is a much requested tool and unfortunately we do not have a simulator. That said, a number of our instructor-led classes provide access to our remote lab, where students can log into a live environment and perform various lab exercises. Our web-based courses offer simulated lab experiences, where students go through lab exercises through an interactive training course.

Aside from the interactive lab training exercises and the live remote lab environment, there is no open sandbox for people.

If there a particular switch/technology that you're interested in I'm happy to make some recommendations.

Thanks a bunch,

Re: How to practise on Brocade switches

Hi Dipesh, I have an email out to our course developers however I believe the web-based version of that course has only simulated labs (i.e., they are pre-recorded and you follow along with the demonstration). The instructor-led and virtual classroom versions have the rsl.brocade.com access, hence the higher price tag which is used to cover the infrastructure costs of the labs.

 

If for some reason this is not the case however, I will let you know as soon as I hear back from the developers.

 

Thanks very much for reaching out!

Re: How to practise on Brocade switches

Hi Dipesh, I received a reply from one of our course developers regarding the labs in CFD 200.

 

"The Lab Exercise in CFD 200 for both WBT and ILT offerings is a “paper” lab and does not require access to rsl.brocade.com. "

 

Please let me know if you have any further questions, and thanks again for reaching out!
