*Although all devices can be added to a custom topology, the commands needed to configure some devices are restricted depending on the license version. For example, 3550 switches can be added to a CCENT or CCNA custom topology. However, the commands needed to configure a 3550 switch are only supported in NetSim for CCNP.

**BGP is limited to the lab included with NetSim at the CCNA level. The BGP command set is not limited to a specific lab at the CCNP level.
