IP Network Fundamentals with Practical Hands-On

Tools used for the practical configuration of IP network

This course is a unique blend of telecom and IP technologies, tailored for network beginners interested in the challenging and exciting world of networking technologies. It is ideal for anyone who wants to learn the basics of switching, routing, IP addressing, and carrier ethernet transport technologies. Course topics include essential technologies, structures, functions, and data transmission methods in modern LANs and WANs. Hands-on labs offer participants the opportunity to build a simple network from scratch, and then observe the network behavior with a protocol analyzer. Practical sessions are held after each module.

  • 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
