Packet Tracer 8.0.0 supports labs created in previous Packet Tracer versions 7.4.0T, 7.3, 7.2, 7.1. However, the files created in Packet Tracer 8.0.0 are not backward compatible with previous versions. Please download the latest Cisco Packet Tracer 8.0.0 on Cisco Netacad before using our labs.
All activities included in the new CCNA v7.02 curricula are fully compatible with Packet Tracer 8.0.0. CCNA v7 students should continue to use Packet Tracer 7.3.1. It is highly recommended for CCNA Routing & Switching (v6), CCNA Discovery, CCNA Exploration, CCNA Security students to stay with Packet Tracer 7.2.2 as they could encounter a warning messages in Packet Tracer 8.0.0.

Sample labs provided with Packet Tracer 8.0.0
Sample labs are provided by Cisco with each new Packet Tracer version to help students to discover the new features / devices of the version. They also provide interesting usage / labs ideas for Network teachers to illustrate how network features work. Documentation is included as text boxes in each lab.
Below is the list of new sample labs provided with Packet Tracer 8.0.0 in C:\Program Files\Cisco Packet Tracer 8.0\saves directory :
- beacons.pkt :
- bluethooth Audio.pkt :
- bluetooth tethering.pkt : Bluetooth Tethering enable sharing of mobile phone network connection using Bluetooth.
- paired connections.pkt :
- ipv6_address_prefix.pkt : Lab featuring Cisco 1941 ISR routers. One router is configured as a DHCPv6 server, the other as DHCPv6 client. The client has to be configured with the ipv6 address dhcp command on gigabit 0/0 interface
Dynamic ARP Inspection :
- dai_sample.pkt : Lab demonstrating DAI capability of Cisco 2960-24TT catalyst switch with an ISR4331 router and two wired DHCP clients.
dot1x (802.1x authentication) :
- wired dot1x.pkt : Lab demonstrating the dot1x authentication capability (username / password scenario, not EAP-TLS) of the Cisco catalyst 2960-24TT switch. The authentication port-control auto and dot1x pae authenticator commands are configured on the interface on which 802.1x authentication has to be enabled
- IPv6 OSPF point-to-point capability has been added with Ethernet interfaces
- IPv6 behavior has been improved in Packet Tracer 7.3.1
