University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory
About the UNH-IOL
The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) tests networking and data communications products. Since 1988, the laboratory has fostered multi-vendor interoperability while preparing students for careers in the industry. The laboratory has grown steadily into one of the industry’s premier independent proving grounds for new technologies.
Industry-Recognized Tests and Reports:
The UNH-IOL maintains a strong reputation for independent, vendor-neutral testing with a focus on quality assurance rather than marketing or promotional goals. The confidential test reports the UNH-IOL provides to its members are recognized throughout the data communications industry as evidence of interoperability and conformance to technical standards.
Expertise and Infrastructure:
Membership in the UNH-IOL can be viewed as an extension of in-house testing and Quality Assurance. UNH-IOL engineers have a thorough knowledge of both industry standards (including IETF, IEEE, and ITU-T) and the methods for testing them.
This testing is conducted in the laboratory’s 32,000+ square foot facility, which houses a multi-million dollar array of test equipment and the latest devices from member companies. In return for their latest devices and support, Members are entitled to high-caliber interoperability and conformance testing against other vendors’ devices without having to incur the capital expense of setting up and operating their own test facilities.
Training Tomorrow’s Engineers:
The UNH-IOL is the only full-scale, non-profit test lab in the world that balances industry expertise with the real-world training of future engineers.
More than 100 graduate and undergraduate student employees work with full-time UNH-IOL staff, gaining hands-on experience with developing technologies and products. The companies and organizations that work with the UNH-IOL benefit from cost-effective testing services, as well as the opportunity to recruit future engineers from the UNH-IOL workforce.
