This article shows you how to set up Cisco Packet Tracer 8.1.1, which is used to prepare for Cisco exams, on Windows 10.

Cisco Packet Tracer is a powerful network simulation application that students can use to train on ccna and ccnp and enable them to create different networks using unlimited devices. Cisco simulator software offers simulation, visualization, creation, evaluation, and collaboration capabilities, making teaching and learning complex technology concepts easy.

A simulation-based learning environment helps students develop skills such as decision-making, creative and critical thinking, and problem-solving. In addition, using the Package Tracer allows you to easily teach and demonstrate complex technical concepts and design network systems by creating network academy curricula.

Cisco Packet Tracer is preferred by beginners who want to improve their network knowledge and advanced users planning to create more advanced network topologies.
