IP for Telecom Professionals – MASTERCLASS

Telecom professional configuring IP network and architecture

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 professionals. This is a comprehensive IP Masterclass covering all the theoretical and practical aspects of IP which a telecommunication 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 Wireshark will be used for live demonstration and exercises so as to enhance the learning experience.

  • Chief Technical Officers who wish to have an overall understanding of IP networking technologies and their applications in the Mobile Networks, Satellite Communications, Optical Networks, Wireless Networks, Data Centers, etc.
  • Product Managers who wish to launch IP-based services
  • Telecom Sales Professionals who interface with customers to sell IP-based services or solutions
  • Procurement Professionals who need to deal with Technical Specifications in RFPs
  • Network Engineers, Designers and Administrators
  • Network Managers and Planners
  • IT Professionals
  • Anyone who wish to learn about the role of IP in Telecommunications
