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 (build lists). There is simply no specific correct answer.
This web page holds some sample build lists developed through past discussions in my blog. I will be renewing this discussion for 2010, starting late March. 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.
Note that the information listed here if for your reference, but there is no warranty as to its accuracy. See the site disclaimer for legalese.
