The main objective of this course is to provide foundational knowledge of IP Routing, Switching and Network Access Technologies to Telecom professionals with little or no prior knowledge of IP.
This course aims to explain the principles, concepts and common implementations of IP routing, switching and transmission technologies within the context of a telecommunications working environment.
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Understand IP data encapsulation concepts, protocol layer interactions of the TCP/IP protocol stack, and related Transmission and Network Layer concepts
- Understand and implement IP Address Classes, CIDR and VLSM methods
- Understand basic IP QoS, Security and VPN concepts
- Understand MPLS concepts, topology and implementation,
- Understand Network Access protocols, standards and technologies commonly implemented for IP transport, including DWDM, LAN PHY , WAN PHY, SDH and Carrier Ethernet
- Demonstrate basic IP technology concepts on a simple network
Duration and Training Format:
3-day instructor-led workshop with labs.

What is so unique about Telefocal's 'Fundamentals of IP and Network Access Technologies' course?
Telefocal's 'Fundamentals of IP and Network Access Technologies' course is a unique blend of basic IP technologies and transport technologies specially designed for the participants who are to perform the duties in telcos environment.
This is a combination of IP technologies and the underlying transport technologies.
The contents delivered will provide a good knowledge for those who are at the front end dealing with corporate customers.
Front end officers will be proficient in IP as well as IP Transport technologies and will be able to offer products with different underlying technologies.
Participants will be able to offer finished products like IPL, IEPL, IP Transit (with Tier1 and Tier 2), IP Peering (public, private, partial or paid) and raw products like Half circuits over SDH, DWDM, LAN PHY, WAN PHY and Carrier Ethernet.
