Laboratory classes for Computer Networking are conducted in room B232.
Capabilities & instrumentation
The networking Laboratory includes three racks populated with wired and wireless equipment that allow students to login to the devices and perform various laboratory exercises on wired and wireless network technologies. All the devices are connected to access servers, which allow students to login to the devices and perform their labs remotely from anywhere on the campus or from home.
On the wired side, we have several Cisco routers and switches both on the enterprise as well as service provider (ISP) gears, including Cisco 2500, 2600 series of routers, and 2900 and 3500 series of switches. We are in the process of adding higher end routers and switches such as 3900 and 6500 series in near future. On the wireless side, we have several stand-alone Cisco enterprise gear 1200 series Access Points (AP) and 3500 series Light Weight APs, as well as several 2100 and 4400 series Cisco wireless LAN controllers. The racks are also equipped with two super-power Dell PowerEdge R710 servers for virtualization and cloud computing labs.
