The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) employs remote access laboratories (RAL) to allow external students to perform practical experiments remotely without the need to travel to USQ to perform these experiments on campus. Many topics require practical experiments as part of their learning experience. One such topic is computer networking. This dissertation details the research, design and implementation of a networking specific remote access laboratory.

The concepts of a remote access laboratory and several existing technologies were researched. Based on this research and the existing practical networking course at USQ the requirements for a networking lab were created an analysed. From this a design was created which comprised of multiple virtual machines, a web interface, a configurable switch, and a program written to supervise the lab. This design was then implemented and tested.
