11 Top Science & Technology Research Labs

The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) is a neutral, third-party laboratory that tests networking and data communications products for quality assurance. According to the UNH-IOL, its facility occupies more than 32,000 square feet and houses a “multi-million dollar array of test equipment and the latest devices from member companies.” These companies exchange their devices and support for interoperability and conformance testing against other vendors’ devices at the lab. The lab also provides hands-on experience to the UNH graduate and undergraduate students who work with full-time UNH-IOL staff, and offers outreach about STEM education and careers to surrounding school systems and communities.
