BCU SE - Introduction to Packet Tracer 19/20

Birmingham City University



The Introduction to Packet Tracer self-paced course is designed for beginners with no prior networking knowledge. Packet Tracer is an exciting network design, simulation and modelling tool that allows you to develop your skill set in networking, cybersecurity, and the Internet of Things (IoT). It allows you to model complex systems without the need for dedicated equipment. It is used across numerous Cisco Academy courses to help develop and assess the skill set necessary for successful completion of the course.

At the completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Explain the function and installation of Cisco Packet Tracer.
  • Investigate the Packet Tracer User Interface.
  • Investigate network functionality using Packet Tracer Simulation mode.
  • Investigate the Packet Tracer Physical view.
  • Explain Packet Tracer File and Assessment types.
  • What IoT devices are available in Packet Tracer.
  • Where IoT devices are located.
  • How to connect IoT devices to your network.
  • How sensors interact with smart devices.
  • How different IoT devices work.
  • Basic configuration of smart devices.
  • Create and connect IoT devices into a small home network using the built-in registration server of the home gateway or a dedicated registration server.
  • Describe the types of environmental controls that are available in Packet Tracer.
  • Configure environmental controls within containers.
  • Explain how smart devices interact with the Packet Tracer environmental elements.
  • Adjust environmental elements.
  • Set conditions so that IoT devices will take action.
  • Create a new Thing.
  • Connect a Thing to the network.
  • Use available scripts for a new Thing.
  • Access the programming environment.
  • Review and modify existing scripts.
