Lab Resources


Resources

The high performance engineering lab is comprised of two parts. The multi-core servers section is equipped with state-of-the-art multi-core processors based systems and switches supporting up to 1 Gbps (Giga Bits per Second) network setup. The cluster section is equipped with a capacity 180 PCs supporting up to 1 Gbps network setup. This lab is extensible and in future will be upgraded to support 10 Gbps network setup. This lab is designed to international standard providing secure internal and external high speed connectivity.
