How to Download Cisco Packet Tracer Latest Version for Windows, Linux, and macOS
Cisco network simulator program is offered free to Cisco Networking Academy members. If you do not have a Cisco Netacad account, you can easily find and obtain this program over the Internet.
With this simulator program, you can create simple or complex network topologies and then convert/apply the logical topology you have created to the physical network.
Cisco has added significant features to the simulator software. In particular, the appearance of the program is quite different from the older versions. The new look of the Packet Tracer will allow you to design a more intuitive network.
The newest feature of Packet Tracer is that it includes CCNA 7 support without being compatible with previous versions. Therefore, for CCNA 6 or earlier versions, Cisco recommends version 7.2.2. In addition to this release, two new devices have been added to the Cisco 4331 Integrated Services Router and Cisco Wireless Lan Controller 3504.
