Department Laboratories

 

Digital switching systems laboratory.

This laboratory is equipped with integrated digital switching units. These units facilitate the study of switching parameters, control units, input and output devices, and subscriber's registration. This laboratory also supports switching maintenance, and testing of subscriber circuits and connection circuits.

Private automatic branch exchange (PABX) laboratory.

This laboratory comprises a group of private automatic branch exchange (PABXs) that supports training of engineers and technicians.

ATM Switching laboratory.

This laboratory contains a main ATM switching unit and three ATM units used as terminal switches. These switches are connected through optical fiber and local area data network. The laboratory demonstrates methods of connecting ATM switches to digital exchanges and private branch exchanges (PBXs).

Laboratory for transmission of video and voice over Internet protocol (VoIP).

This laboratory contains state of the art equipment and devices that are used for the establishment of a system for the transmission of video, and voice signals through data networks. This facilitates the study of the protocols, specifications, properties and requirements necessary for transmission of voice over Internet protocol (VoIP). The two videoconference units in this laboratory are connected via the institute local area data network.

Signaling systems laboratory.

This laboratory concerns with signaling systems used for interconnection between exchanges, such as common channel signaling (CCS), channel associated signaling (CAS) signaling system number 7 (SS7).

Integrated service digital network (ISDN) laboratory.

This laboratory concerns with transmission of video, voice and data using integrated service digital network (ISDN).
