Global Knowledge opens new Remote Labs facility

Global Knowledge has opened a new Remote Labs facility at its headquarters in the UK.

According to Global Knowledge, the Labs facility will enable the company's advanced curriculum of courses to be delivered anywhere, using remotely accessed equipment.

The Labs are currently being used to support courses right across Europe and as far as Russia , Singapore , Australia , Brazil and North America.

Global Knowledge says the facility which is located in the company's European Headquarters in Wokingham is capable of supporting over 80 different courses and as many as 1000 delegate students simultaneously.

Richard Pryor-Jones, EMEA President of Global Knowledge, said: "Our Remote Labs infrastructure provides trainers with everything they need to run a full curriculum of Cisco courses. The lab environment has the benefits of emulating the real world.

"In today's global data centre, engineers rarely physically touch the equipment the Remote Labs allows delegates to learn the skills to manage, monitor and configure equipment remotely from their desktop.

"The lab investment is providing fantastic support to our vendors and their channel partners by allowing advanced technology skills to be delivered in countries and regions where it is difficult to provide the right equipment on-site. A standard internet link permits access to the very latest equipment and provides delegates with a very high quality training experience."
