Wireless Networking Lab

The Wireless Networking Lab supports both graduate and undergraduate studies in the fields of computer networking and network-based services. This lab contains one of the largest collections of computers and technology of any of our teaching labs, and is divided into two sections: the first provides a large number of Linux and Windows-installed computers for graduate courses and research, while the second provides "hubs" that consist of multiple computers, ethernet switches and routers and are used for projects and undergraduate courses.

Undergraduate courses in this lab introduce students to hardware, software, and concepts found within the networking field, while more advanced courses focus on wireless and cellular networks and technology. Additionally, the lab supports graduate research as well as undergraduate projects. In conjunction with other labs, the Wireless Networking lab supports the Master of Science degree in Computer Networking (MSCN) and its concentrations (e.g., SSME). As a joint effort between the College of Engineering and the College of Management, the program blends the technical and management aspects of computer networking in order to offer students a truly unique educational opportunity.
