The networking lab has been purpose-built to support the Cisco Networking Academy curriculum, which uses state-of-the-art networking equipment to teach concepts ranging from fundamental networking skills up to enterprise level network engineering. More information about the Cisco Networking Academy can be found here.

The equipment in the lab provides support for the following networking areas:

  • Introduction to Networking (CCNA)
  • Advanced Networking (CCNP)
  • Enterprise Routing and Switching (CCIE R&S)
  • Voice Over IP (VoIP)

Some of the devices in the lab include:

  • 2500 Series Cisco Routers
  • 2600 Series Cisco Routers
  • 2800 Series Cisco ISR Routers
  • 2900 Series Cisco ISRG2 Routers
  • Cisco Small Business SLM224 Switches
  • Cisco Catalyst 2960 Switches
  • Cisco Catalyst 3560 Switches with PoE
  • ADTRAN Atlas 550 WAN/PSTN Simulators
  • Cisco 7945 Unified IP Phones
  • Cisco 2100 Series WLAN Controllers
  • Cisco Aironet 1200 AG Series Access Points
  • HP 10000G2 Series Racks
  • APC 9562 Power Distribution Units
  • IBM x3650M2 Rack Mount Server with multiple virtual machines
  • Many different types of networking cables and interfaces

We are also pleased to announce that we have just recently launched a reservation system that will allow student to book time to use the equipment remotely when it is not being used in class. This will essentially allow the devices in the lab to be accessible at any time and any place.
