Advanced IP Networking for Telecom Professionals

IP phone in data centre room

These days, telecom is incomplete without IT. Mobile communications, optical fiber communications, data center, IMS, etc, all depend heavily on IP technologies. Having a good grasp of these topics would certainly lend a competitive edge to telecom professionals. This is a comprehensive IP masterclass covering all the theoretical and practical aspects of IP that a telecom professional needs to know.

The course begins with detailed explanation on IP basics, before progressing in depth and branching out to other modern IP technologies like IPv6, IPv6 networks and deployments, security, IP/MPLS networks, management VPNs etc.

It also covers other modern real-life applications, such as mobile networks/fixed networks, of IP protocols and equipment, as well as the design and operation of these networks. It also includes topics like IP QoS, IP security, network management, MPLS, tunnelling, etc, which are essential for any telecom professional.

Practical hands-on examples will be included for a good understanding of IP. Simulation tools like Packet Tracer and Packet Tracer like Wireshark will be used for live demonstration and exercises so as to enhance the learning experience.
