Packet Tracer is a software developed by Cisco in the NetAcad training department. This “simulation” software allows you to design multiple scenarios in the field of networks because it allows you to develop different types of networks with wired and wireless media such as LAN, MAN, WAN; Allows you to use dynamic routing protocols such as OSPF, IGRP, EIGRP, BGP, RIP, and static.
It also allows for the development of convergent networks by implementing equipment with multiple services that act as servers, all transmitted and retransmitted packets (TCP protocol) can be visualized by a traffic analyzer that includes the program, which allows seeing how negotiation is set up Different transmission and routing protocols makes their understanding easier.
Packet Tracer is available for different systems such as Windows (32 and 64 bit), Linux (64 bit only), Android and iOS. You must be logged in to access your content.
Installing it on both Android, iOS, and Windows requires no additional steps than downloading your installer from executable Windows from the relevant application market (Google Play Store, App Store) or Web page.
