certexams-logo-small CCNA Network Simulator has been updated to include Graphical User Interface (GUI). Conventionally, a network administrator needs to configure a router or a switch using CLI (Command Line Interface), with the exception of some Wi-Fi routers that allowed GUI configuration. Cisco, as part of its product enhancements, has been working on improving the user interface, and have come up with Cisco Configuration Professional, a GUI tool that allows network administrators to configure and troubleshoot Cisco network devices using a visual GUI interface. Certexams has introduced a limited version of the GUI based Network Configurator that allows users to do mundane tasks such as assigning IP addressses and subnet masks,  setting up DHCP, assigning host name, etc. The GUI is intended to provide some hands-on experience of working with CCP (Cisco Configuration Professional) and simulates the CCP navigation.

A typical screenshot of the feature may be seen the figure. As seen in the figure, the GUI consists of a left pane that outlines the configuration tasks, and when selected, the right pane provides the work area, where the user may select or type-in appropriate configuration. Several labs have been given to familiarize the user to configuring the network using GUI. However, this being the first release, more enhancements may be expected to Network Configurator. More configuration tasks, as well as new labs will be added in due course of time.

Available labs may be viewed here:

MPLS has become very popular during recent years to accommodate gigabit switching speeds over wide area networks. Traditional IP routing uses enormous processing overhead and slows down packet switching speeds. MPLS allows packets to be forwarded by looking at the label (Just like switch looks at Layer 2) rather than having to be passed up to Layer 3 (the IP header). Each packet gets labeled on entry into the service provider’s MPLS network by the ingress router. All the subsequent routing between nodes is based only on the MPLS label that was attached by the previous MPLS enabled router. The router doesn’t have to look at IP header, thus saving enormous processing load. Alter the packet traverses though the MPLS network, the egress router removes the label(s) and forwards the original IP packet toward its final destination.

Network Simulator with Designer for CCNA has been updated to include MPLS commands and several MPLS labs. For complete list of labs included, please visit the page here:

The software consists of hundreds of labs for hands-on practice. The simulator is intended for beginners who desires to have hands-on experience in designing and implementing router/switch network in a simulated environment.

Vijayawada – The New Capical of Andhra Pradesh!

Nara Chandra Babu Naidu

AP cabinet, headed by the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, has finally resolved to announce the capital of Andhra Pradesh. It is going to be developed around Vijayawada on the banks of river Krishna.

It may be recalled that the state had been divided by creating a new state of Telangana,  and the state of Andhra Pradesh remained without capital for over 6 months. The existing capital of AP (Hyderabad) had been announced as the capital of Telangana.

Vijayawada, along with Guntur, Tenali, and Mangalagiri (called VGTM) is going to form the new capital of Andhra Pradesh. The whole region is likely to be part of greater Vijayawada.

The state is still looking at the center for implementing the promises that it had agreed to while dividing the state. Most notable among these are:

1. Financial help in the development of new state capital

2. Declaration of residual state of AP with Special Ss, which means that the companies enjoy tax holiday for a pre-determined period of time (about 5 to 10 years).

3. Special package to backward districts in AP

4. Completion of Polavaram Dam

however, no significant funds have been allocated for so far for development of state by the Modi government so far.  Also, the special status is still pending. It remains to be seen whether the AP govt will succeed in getting required resources and assistance for the central government to fulfill its promises to the people of AP.

Good luck!

2. Visited Bhutan for improving bilateral trade and cultural relations.

3. Presented first budget,in which he contemplated smart cities, and bullet trains.

4. Visited Japan for investments in India and exchange of cultural activities. Japan promised to invest up to 35 billion USD in India during next 5 years.

5. Expedited road and rail constructions in border areas to improve movement of army personnel, and civilians in border areas.

6. Chinese premier will be visiting next week with a proposal to set up technology parks in Ahmadabad and Pune, with investment up to 7 billions.

7. The GDP of the country seen a small improvement during the first 3 months of this FY 2014-15, which may be primarily distributable to Modi sentiment.

There are great expectations from Modi government, and it is generally believed that the economic, social, and defense areas are going to be strengthened over the next few years.

Good luck!
