CAIDA-Sponsored Internet Teaching Labs to Open at 13 Universities
SAN DIEGO, CA -- Thirteen universities across the country will soon implement Internet Teaching Laboratories (ITLs) on their campuses for use in their fall 2000 terms. The ITL project (http://www.caida.org/projects/itl/), sponsored by the Cooperative Association for Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA), includes plans for hands-on teaching laboratories at 25 U.S. universities during the year 2000.
The Internet Teaching Labs are a natural outgrowth of CAIDA's Internet Engineering Curriculum project that aims to improve curriculum resources as a step toward better preparing the next generation of network engineers and technology workers,said Aubrey Bush, Director of the Division of Advanced Networking Infrastructure and Research of the National Science Foundation (NSF).We are particularly excited that CAIDA, through their successful collaborative relationships with the networking industry, has been able to establish this program to place modern networking equipment into university labs.
Cisco Donates Equipment for CAIDA Internet Teaching Laboratory Program
The Cooperative Association for Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA) has announced a generous grant of hardware from Cisco Systems to support CAIDA's innovative Internet Teaching Laboratory (ITL) program to create hands-on Internet teaching laboratories at U.S. universities.
The grant from Cisco Systems, a major sponsor of the ITL program, involves 65 Cisco 7000 routers and includes the routers, interface cards, and software. Many of these routers are being distributed to the existing ITL sites.
