The NetSE Lab uses the
Computer Networks Lab
and Wireless Networks Lab
. The lab is currently equipped with a
variety of networking equipment, high-end computers and notebooks,
and a number of supporting peripherals.
The Computer Networks Lab is a miniature version of the
Internet. The available equipment is sufficient to emulate many
traffic scenarios found on the real Internet and to teach TCP/IP
protocols and data communication to students, and to give them
hands-on experience on networking.
The lab has modular
equipment. Each rack has 4 Cisco 2811 Integrated Services Routers, a
3Com switch, 4 PCs as internet hosts, 4 switches, 1 KVM switch and
its set (LCD monitor, keyboard, and mouse), cables and connectors.
One set of
rack equipment is used by 4 students in lab experiments.
Currently there are 5 racks in the lab, and since the design of the
lab is modular and scalable, it can be easily extended if it is
needed in the future.
The Wireless Networks Lab
has also has an
Internet rack, computers, indoor and
outdoor access points and antennas, notebooks, mobile devices like
Pocket PCs (IPAQs like hw6515, h6340), smart mobile phones (like
SonyEricsson P990), GSM/GPRS/GPS/802.11/Bluetooth devices and
modems, wireless development kits, Sensors Networks Teaching Lab Equipment
Mote Sensor Kits),
