The SIGITE Computing Curricula suggests that a hands-on laboratory component is essential in teaching networking courses. However there are some drawbacks and limitations including high costs of implementation and maintenance, security risks to the campus network, and a limited number of practical guides that feature both design and implementation. Furthermore, with the advancement of other approaches such as virtualization and simulation it has become increasingly difficult to justify funding a hands-on laboratory.
IslaNet is an isolated and secure approach to implementing computer networking laboratories which produce a low-cost model, focused on hands-on implementation. IslaNet uses various components from other approaches to mitigate, or in some cases, completely eliminate the risks and deficiencies that traditional hands-on laboratories introduce. The laboratory objectives are derived from the SIGITE Computing Curriculum to provide a solid, well developed foundation. IslaNet offers concept, design, and implementation using a unique multi-layer approach.
