Faraday Lab

WISP is housed at a dedicated lab space in the 3rd floor of ESL GCI for wireless experimentation research in cellular networks, Wi-Fi, and IoT security. It is an RF-shielded 230-square-feet lab space, and named Faraday Lab accordingly, which provides a safe space for experimentations without violating RF spectrum regulations with regard to licensed bands. In addition, the lab includes desks for the students to work at, a GPS cable connected to an antenna on the roof, a whiteboard, a digital screen, and other computing recourses,

Some of the major equipment currently available in this lab includes two laptops, four Ettus USRP B210s with GNSS antenna module, two NI-USRP RIO 2944R software-defined radios, two Ettus N210 USRPs with UBX-40 boards and GNSS antenna module, one NI-USRP 2922 software radio, several LimeSDR devices, and two Cohda Wireless equipment for V2V research, plus RF cables and other accessories. The RIOs have 10 MHz to 6 GHz frequency range and 160 MHz simultaneous bandwidth while the LimeSDRs support 100 kHz to 3.8 MHz frequency range and 61 MHz simultaneous bandwidth.
