The Benchmark Optical Fibre Training Kit – OFT – is a powerful, versatile and cost-effective experimenter kit ideal for training purposes at all levels and was developed in a joint effort by IIT-Madras and Benchmark Electronic Systems. The first trainer kit was built in 1988. Over the years, as per feedback from faculty all over the country, new versions were developed and built. Currently, the OFT is in its fourth version.
The Benchmark OFS IV – the latest in the Benchmark series of Optifical Fibre Training Systems – is designed to provide comprehensive training to students and all levels of scientific and technical personnel on fibre optic devices and digital communication systems.
The Benchmark LAN-T - LAN Trainer - is a versatile laboratory system that supplements courses on computer networks and LANs. Developed by Benchmark Electronic Systems in collaboration with IIT-Madras, the LAN-T exposes users tonetworking conceptsat the physical, MAC, network and transportlayers through a carefully designed series of experiments.
Between two end PCs in a WAN or between a user and a server in the internet, there lies a vast list of equipment such as switchers, routers, firewalls, IDSs, etc., all working 24 hours a day, seven days a week and following various disparate technologies such as Ethernet, WLAN, E1/T1, DSL, SDH, FDDI, ATM, etc.; and, all aimed at ensuring that the end systems or users send and receive their required data without any loss, disruption or hassle.
The Benchmark i-SECURIT is a network and data security training system that has been jointly developed by Benchmark Electronic Systems and AU-KBC Research Centre, Anna University, to educate and train users on different real world network security threats and data encryption methods.
The Ultimate Digital Wireless Communication Training System – SDR Platform : The Benchmark WiCOMM-T – the ultimate Digital Wireless Communication Training Platform – is the actual implementation of modern digital communication systems with direct interface to MATLAB through the Hi-Speed - USB port of a PC.
Benchmark CommLAB-T – Communication systems Laboratory Trainer is a hardware-software platform to teach concepts of analog communication systems. The hardware consists of a Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) for transmission and an Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) for reception. Transmitter & receiver are connected through BNC cord to form a complete communication system.
