Boson Courseware Lab Pack for NetSim

A Lab Pack for NetSim is a free component of all Boson Courseware Kits. The Lab Pack allows you to perform the Courseware Lab Guide exercises in NetSim. Using the Lab Pack for NetSim is optional, as the labs can also be performed on real equipment. An active license of the corresponding NetSim 11 CCENT, CCNA or CCNP is required to use the Lab Pack for NetSim. (A higher level of NetSim will also work. For example, if you have an active license of NetSim 11 for CCNP you can use the Lab Pack for CCENT or CCNA.)
