New Equipment Enhances Accenture Information Technology Management Lab
Among improvements is increased network capability. Along the perimeter of the classroom, assistant professor John D'Arcy can set up four networks, each with five personal computers and a server. This is conducted in isolation from the Internet and the university computer system to avoid any network vulnerability. When the class is complete, the computers are rebooted and reconnected to the Internet. For each of the local area networks, the server has a 42-inch screen. This allows students to look over from their PCs and easily see what impact their work has on the server.
