The functioning of modern businesses is increasingly dependent on the reliability and security of computer networks. Contemporary networks are built both within company branches and between them, thus enabling improved work efficiency. The exchange of electronic documents and the rapid delivery of information reduce the time that is spent on processing, thus enhancing productivity. Furthermore, the growing popularity of remote work necessitates the use of cryptographic techniques, authentications, and authorizations.
The Computer Networks Laboratory serves as a platform for imparting knowledge that covers the fundamentals of modern computer-network construction as well as advanced techniques for securing the traffic among these networks and ensuring the quality of the transmissions.
The Computer Networks Laboratory is located in Room 4.23 in Building D-17.
The laboratory is used for educational purposes in such subjects as "Computer Networks," “Virtual Private Networks,” “Future Internet Technologies,” and “Distributed Systems.” It also hosts training sessions that are conducted by the Cisco Networking Academy at the Department of Computer Science at AGH University of Science and Technology in collaboration with Cisco Systems as part of the Cisco Networking Academy program.
The equipment and software that are available in the laboratory enable the creation of an isolated campus network (connecting any remote branches of a company) and the management of the processes within such a network, including the following:
- • routing selection for information transmission in local and wide-area networks.
- • Network communication security mechanisms.
- • Device and user authentication mechanisms.
- • Quality of transmission control mechanisms.
- • Wireless communication.
The laboratory equipment includes the following equipment:
- • networking devices for local communication (such as network switches and wireless access points);
- • routing devices for selecting routes in local and wide-area networks based on IPv4 and IPv6 protocols (including routers and Layer 3 switches);
- • PC workstations with Windows 10, Linux Kali, and Linux Ubuntu 16.04 operating systems and equipped with software that supports network services, including sniffers (Wireshark, Ostinato, Yersinia), syslog, RADIUS, FTP, TFTP, SNMP, frame generators (PackEth), remote hardware management (Cisco SDM), and SHTTPD web servers;
- • PCoverIP terminals (Samsung NC240);
- • hardware network filters (firewalls);
- • two multimedia projectors.
