The Networking lab N424 is a 36-seater room all linked back to four racks of Cisco equipment.
Students log on to this PC normally to access university resources as in any other IT lab. The only difference in the configuration is the addition of 3 Virtual Machines on the PC that are accessed through VMware Workstation. Each PC is enhanced with 3 extra network cards that take up the remaining slots in an HP Small Form Factor machine.
As of January 2019, N523 and N424 are directly linked with 8 runs of fiber optic cable that can be used to create larger networks.
