UNIMAS-SACOFA Telecommunication Laboratory

UNIMAS-SACOFA Telecommunication Laboratory is located at Level 1, Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Faculty of Engineering. It was officially launched by YBhg. Datu Dr Hatta Solhi on 31st July 2015 from the collaboration between UNIMAS and industrial partnership, SACOFA Sdn. Bhd. It is called ‘one-stop centre’ based on infrastructures and telecommunication services in Sarawak. This laboratory is used to provide a platform for the students and staff to acquire knowledge, skills and hands-on experience in operating widely used equipment in the telecommunication industry. With these additional skills, the students will improve their employment chances after they graduated from UNIMAS. This lab is equipped with 16 personal computers (as designing devices equipped with special software from Huawei, eNSP and UTP2000) and a server room consists of two sample network VLAN6 and VLAN 9 which includes devices such as firewall, routers, switches, optical devices, backup batteries for both data and computer networking and optical fibre communication.
