To support teaching and research activities of the chair, Cisco kindly donated a rack full of hardware equipment, that is colloquially referred to as Pool of Devices (POD) . The POD supports our research (on high speed software routers, on ICN, etc.), as well as our advanced teaching activities (with practical activities that run over the POD).
Additionally, thanks to the funding of the chair, we have been able to aquire two Sparkboards (locat ed in the meeting rooms I304 and I426 at the Italie site). The Sparkboards are very cool gears that allow us to productively meet in a videoconference, screensharing and enjoy advanced functionalities such as interactive whiteboard.
