Cisco has released a number of apps for the iPhone and one of them is the Cisco 3D catalog. It’s not something I would have intentionally looked for but it may come in handy for those who are just starting out in their certification process, especially since many labs are remote these days. I know for a fact that some students have never seen the actual equipment they are certified to work with. So this is where the catalog may come in handy. It provides a 3D view of some of Cisco’s popular products. Not everything is here, but it’s better than something. The home screen displays three options:
- UCS Servers
Each product displayed provides some technical details by tapping on markers displayed on the image. Overall its nice, but the resolution is disapointing.
Again if you are studying for certs and have never seen the equipment before it’s nice. Give it a test drive. If you don’t like it or use it you can just as easily delete it. My main gripe is the resolution.
