Logical and physical workspaces
The logical workspace allows student to get a global view of the network through realtime or simulaton mode. The devices are added, linked, and configured on this workspace.
The physical workspace gives a physical dimension to the logical network topology. This workspace is particulary important for wireless labs, where the distance parameter is one of the factors that determine if a device is able to connect or not connect to another device. The physical workspace is divided into four layers to reflect the physical scale of real life environments:
- Wiring Closet.
