New Tool Enhances WAN Education

Helping students understand Wide Area Networks (WAN) without live demonstrations can be a lot like teaching auto mechanics without a car. Often, educators have had to teach WAN theory without the ability to show students in a hands-on way how theory translates into practice. But that is changing, because after two years of research and a year of testing in a college computer lab, Sangoma Technologies Corp. has developed the WAN EduKit. The kit works on Windows- or Linux-based PCs to give students a real-time, well-documented lab environment that lets instructors demonstrate a variety of WAN protocols, including X.25, Frame Relay, HDLC, SDLC, PPP and SS7. Sangoma's WAN EduKit sells for $549 and comes with a money-back guarantee. For a demonstration, visit www.sangoma.com/wek2.htm or call (800) 388-2475, Ext. 150.
