I've been asked to simulate a topology, which requires me to implement 2 CCTV cameras in a network using Packet Tracer. However I realise that their isn't IP Cameras in PT, so how best can I simulate this? Can I use webcams? Is there another loophole using this software?



Without knowledge of why you're attempting to simulate this I cannot give full guidance. I can however point you toward some possible solutions:

Use GNS3 or EVE-NG to simulate the network. Use a linux VM inside the virtual environment to simulate the role of the IP Camera. Most IP cameras stream using HTTP or RTP, this could be mimic'd by just standing up a small web server on the linux VM.
