In this paper, the teaching usage feasibility of open-source electronics platform Arduino is discussed, with regard to the loosely combination status of "Computer Network" course experiments and measurement and control technology specialty. Then the improved solution of "Computer Network" course experiments is proposed and embedded server simulated industrial applications for experimental teaching is designed based on Arduino. Practice shows that the design cost is low and the development cycle is short due to the use of open source hardware. Moreover, the specialty-oriented characteristics can help students to enhance professional knowledge understanding, increase interest in learning and strengthen innovative practice atmosphere.
