The goal is to provide a realistic minimal working network for the students to experiment with. The suggested network space is composed from:
A group of Ethernet switches, preferably industrial (Cisco, Hirschmann, Moxa etc.).
In addition one router (of choice, can be office or industrial), two industrial firewalls.
Depending on the setup: either physical or virtual workstations to generate and analyze traffic.
The expected space setup is a small network with 5 switches and uplink to the router through a firewall. The Networks space is expected to provide infrastructure for selected experiments for the other spaces.
