CNRC INTEREST Lab
The Internet teaching and research (INTEREST) lab supports the education in networking and distributed systems for undergraduate and graduate students.
The INTEREST Lab has three racks with the following equipment on each rack:
The following cables are available:
The Lab is currently used for teaching purposes: students gain hands-on experience conducting supervised experiments using the lab's networking equipment. These lab experiments cover the technologies and protocols of the Internet using equipment currently available to large Internet service providers such as Cisco routers and end-systems. Students learn how to engineer wide-area networks and familiarize themselves with currently used technologies such as the Internet Protocol (IP), Address Resolution Protocol (ARP), Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP), User Datagram Protocol (UDP) and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), the Domain Name System (DNS), routing protocols (RIP, OSPF, BGP), network management protocols (SNMP), and application-level protocols (FTP, TELNET, SMTP).
Lab Teaching Objectives
The INTEREST lab was made possible through the CAIDA ITL program which provided the first set of equipment and grants from the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
The current lab manager is Hoon Chang.
