Advanced Telecommunications Laboratory

The Telecommunications Laboratory is a space designed to carry out tests and experiments related to the transmission of data through telecommunication networks, the implementation of IoT applications, wireless transmission and other communication concepts.

The laboratory is equipped with a wide range of specialized tools and equipment to carry out these tasks.

In addition to networks, the lab has IoT devices such as sensors, actuators, and other devices connected to the Internet, which allow researchers to experiment with deploying and managing IoT applications. Data collected by IoT devices can be analyzed and visualized using specialized software in the lab.

The laboratory also has equipment to carry out transmission tests, including antennas, oscilloscopes and spectrum analyzers. Students can use this equipment to assess signal quality and the ability of the network to transmit data in different conditions and environments.

The main objective of the telecommunications laboratory is to provide a practical learning environment for students specializing in this area of ​​study equipped with equipment and tools that allow students to explore and experiment with the theoretical concepts they have learned in the classroom.

Among the main functions of a telecommunications teaching laboratory are:

  • Provide students with hands-on experience in the design, implementation, operation, and maintenance of telecommunications systems.
  • Develop skills in problem solving, decision making and teamwork by carrying out projects and experiments in the laboratory.
  • Promote research and innovation in the field of telecommunications by carrying out research and development projects in collaboration with companies and institutions in the sector.
  • The mission of the telecommunications laboratory is to help students develop practical skills and knowledge in the field of telecommunications through quality education, research and innovation in the sector.
