NDG has worked closely with the Cisco CCNP v7 lab team to develop these labs and to ensure compatibility with NETLAB+.
CCNP v7 ROUTE is supported by one or more of the following NETLAB+ pods. The supported lab list (below) provides a list of CCNP ROUTE v7 compatible labs and the pod types that can be used for each lab.

To enable the CCNP v6.0 ROUTE labs, create a class and check the appropriate global labs in the class settings as described in the table below, depending on the pod(s) that will be used.
Cuatro Router Pod
||AE CCNPv7 ROUTE - CRP||On the Global Labs section of the class settings, check "AE CCNPv7 ROUTE - CRP" if the CRP will be used to perform the labs.|
|Multi-purpose Academy Pod||AE CCNPv7 ROUTE - MAP||On the Global Labs section of the class settings, check the "AE CCNPv7 ROUTE - MAP" if the MAP will be used to perform the labs.|
|Multi-purpose Academy Pod w/ASA||AE CCNPv7 ROUTE - MAP/ASA||On the Global Labs section of the class settings, check the "AE CCNPv7 ROUTE - MAP/ASA" if the MAP w/ASA will be used to perform the labs.|
Cuatro Router Pod and/or
Multi-purpose Academy Pod
|AE CCNPv7 ROUTE - CRP and
(AE CCNPv7 ROUTE - MAP and/or AE CCNPv7 ROUTE - MAP/ASA)
|On the Global Labs section of the class settings, check both the "AE CCNPv7 ROUTE - CRP" and ("AE CCNPv7 ROUTE - MAP" and/or "AE CCNPv7 ROUTE - MAP/ASA") if the CRP and the (MAP and/or MAP w/ASA) will be used to perform the labs.|
The Skills exam is contained in a separate lab package and is enabled in the class settings separately from the core CCNPv7 ROUTE labs. This allows instructors to defer access to the exam until the end of the course. To enable the SBA, select global lab AE CCNPv7 ROUTE SBA.
Always select the correct lab exercise for the lab being performed. Students or teams should schedule the correct lab exercise from the catalog. NETLAB+ will only show those labs for which the required pod type is available. A lab that works on different pod types may appear more than once if your system is so equipped. Instructors should select the correct lab from the Exercise tab during instructor-led lab reservations. This can be done as many times as needed during the reservation.
Importance of Choosing the Correct Lab Exercise
Several of the labs may differ from the standard pod topologies. This is handled by NETLAB+ Dynamic VLAN Mapping technology. Always select the correct lab exercise for the actual lab. This insures that NETLAB+ will set up VLANs on the control switch such that lab devices and PCs are placed in the correct LAN segment for the exercise being performed. Selecting the correct exercise will also make the completed lab output easier to find in the archive.
NETLAB+ will configure the routers with initial configuration files that include basic IP connectivity. Please verify this configuration by pinging the network interfaces before starting the lab exercise.
The routers used must meet minimum IOS requirements specified by the curriculum. The following recommendations are based on the CCNP v7 Equipment List (available on Academy Connection). Other router and switch models may be used. Please consult Academy Connection NetAcad Maintenance - Image & Hardware Support Assistance with Legacy Equipment and Software.

1Switches S1, S2 and S3 are not needed for ROUTE. If you are also using your MAP or MAP w/ASA to support other courses such as CCNP TSHOOT v7 or CCNP SWITCH v7, please follow the device requirements for S1, S2 and S3 appropriate for your course selections.
