IABM Training - Advanced IP Networks for Engineers - London

21st March -22nd March 2019

Advanced IP Networks for Engineers


IABM Advanced IP Networks for Engineers course

This 2 day course builds on the content covered in the IP Network Essentials for Engineers course giving more detail on the protocols involved in streaming video across IP networks.

Delegates will build practical networks hands-on to deliver unicast video streams across routed and switched networks. The resilience of the network to deliver video streams at layer 2 (spanning tree / rapid spanning tree) will be compared and contrasted practically with the failover of routing protocols at layer 3 (OSPF routing protocol). Layer 3 switches will be used for interconnecting networks and typical commands required for these exercises will be covered on the course.

Please note, Delegates should have attended the ‘Network Essentials for Engineers’ course or have the equivalent knowledge and experience.
