Interoperability Lab at University of New Hampshire


Published on

The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) is an establishment visited by vendors and visitors traveling from all over the world to test their company’s technical equipment, devices and software, or to learn about the services we offer to our customers and others come to learn about opportunities we have for students interested in technology. Some of our guests are here to attend what we call Plugfest events, these events entail multiple technical companies coming together and testing their products with other company’s products. Other vendors come for “in-house testing”, which is a single company of one or more representatives coming in to test their products in our lab.
