Huawei Technology has developed the eNSP (acronym from Enterprise Network Simulation Platform) environment. It is a free environment which is a simulator of Huawei solutions enabling self-study and preparation for the whole certification path of Huawei Technologies (eg full pathway certification routing and switching: HCNA, HCNP-R & S, and HCIE-R & S). Therefore, this environment allows you to fully prepare for raising your qualifications and experience in handling Huawei solutions and to obtain certification of this manufacturer and each level.

The article presents the possibilities of the Huawei eNSP environment to build a large, complex topology that can be used to learn and gather experience in the configuration and maintenance of a large computer network based on the solutions of the Huawei Company. The capabilities of handling various protocols/dispatches occurring in a typical real corporate network were being migrated.

Also examined the possibility of providing students or groups of students (also remotely) with prepared patterns of such a network in the aspect of later checking and analysis of prepared configurations. This is an important issue because it can also help companies during the recruitment process of new employees to verify their skills without the need to use expensive network devices.
