Build Virtual Labs with netlab

blog » tags » netlab

The netlab tool will help you be more proficient once you decide to drop GUI-based network simulators and build your labs using CLI and infrastructure-as-code principles.

You can also use netlab (potentially together with GitHub Codespaces) to build online, easy-to-consume, hands-on training solutions. I used that approach to build the BGP labs.
