Design, build, visualize, and launch virtual network simulations quickly and efficiently. With Cisco Modeling Labs, you can model your network behavior, validate network changes, and troubleshoot issues. Cisco Modeling Labs acts as a test bed for applications that work with the network. With its simple point-and-click interface, you can design or import a network topology and turn it into a virtual network in minutes.
Cisco Modeling Labs 1.3 has now been released for purchase and upgrade.
Cisco Modeling Labs is a scalable and extensible software platform for designing, simulating, and testing network models. This innovative platform uses advanced virtualization technology, such as OpenStack, for simulations. It combines that virtualization technology with the technology of Cisco reference platforms such as Cisco IOSv, NX-OSv 9000, IOS XRv 9000, IOS XE (CSR 1000V) and ASAv to provide a wide range of network modeling options. Cisco Modeling Labs is an ideal solution for conducting predeployment network testing.
With the new clustering architecture, Cisco Modeling Labs is ideal for service providers and enterprise use.
With Cisco Modeling Labs, you can:
