Put 10 network engineers in front of a computer, ask them to build a home CCNP lab, and you probably get 10 different lists of gear to buy. There is no one right answer, and you may well pick a different mix than many others that post about this topic on my blog.
This page holds the sample build lists developed through discussions in my blog. I will be renewing this discussion for 2010, starting around March 1st. That series will include some discussion of build lists. The build lists residing here now are samples, and will doubtless change somewhat once I get into this latest lab gear blog series. For now, feel free to review the what’s here.
