Fundamentals of IP and Network Access Technologies

Telecom professional configuring Virtual Private Network (VPN) to mask IP address on mobile phone

This course provides foundational knowledge of IP Routing, Switching and Network Access Technologies to Telecom professionals with little or no prior knowledge of IP. It aims to explain the principles, concepts and common implementations of IP routing, switching and transmission technologies within the context of a telecommunications working environment. Practical and Labs exercises will be covered.

  • Network Engineers, Designers and Administrators
  • Product Managers who wish to launch IP-based services
  • Telecom professionals with little or no prior knowledge of IP
  • Non-Telecom professionals who are also keen to learn the Basics of IP technologies
Instructor-led Training
