GNS3 is a graphical network simulator that allows simulation of complex networks.

To provide complete and accurate simulations, GNS3 is strongly linked with:

  • Dynamips, a Cisco IOS emulator.
  • Dynagen, a text-based front end for Dynamips.
  • Qemu, a generic and open source machine emulator and virtualizer.
  • VirtualBox, a free and powerful virtualization software.

GNS3 is an excellent complementary tool to real labs for network engineers, administrators and people wanting to study for certifications such as Cisco CCNA, CCNP, CCIP and CCIE as well as Juniper JNCIA, JNCIS and JNCIE.1
