Cisco Modeling Labs

Cisco Modeling Labs is our premier platform for network simulation. With an easy-to-use HTML5 UI and a comprehensive API, Cisco Modeling Labs makes it fun to design, test, troubleshoot, and learn.

Welcome to the world of network simulation

Cisco Modeling Labs is an on-premise network simulation tool that runs on workstations and servers. With Cisco Modeling Labs, you can quickly and easily simulate Cisco and non-Cisco networks, using real Cisco images. This gives you highly reliable models for designing, testing, and troubleshooting. Compared to building out real-world labs, Cisco Modeling Labs returns results faster, more easily, and for a fraction of the cost.
