The lab is intended to provide practical examples of application in computer networks and to enable students to conduct independent experiments in the following areas of teaching and research:

•    Network development and configuration
•    Ensuring reliable and secure communication
•    Using network management and monitoring tools for analytical purposes

Teaching and Research
