Overview

 

Cisco® Virtual Internet Routing Lab (VIRL) is a multi-purpose network virtualization platform that provides an easy way to build, configure, and test new or existing network topologies with an intuitive user interface (UI). VIRL enables customers to support critical missions, such as designing, training, release testing, and configuration staging, without the expense of buying and staging real network hardware. This demonstration requires familiarity with Cisco networking architecture and routing fundamentals.
