This course is designed for field operations, engineering, and NOC technicians supporting national data and voice networks seeking to develop their knowledge and skills around Ethernet and IP. IPv6 addressing is also introduced. The course also covers fundamental router administrative commands and backup and restore procedures.
This course provides training on key Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) concepts and protocols so network professionals can effectively plan, deploy and manage a TCP/IP enterprise network. Participants will learn to build an enterprise network and analyze TCP/IP application and protocol information.
This Course provides an overview of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), IP Multimedia System Architecture (IMS) and Long Term Evolution (LTE). This curriculum includes an overview and architecture of MPLS, IMS, and LTE fundamentals.
This course provides information on the next generation of mobile broadband technology, Long Term Evolution (LTE). LTE represents an evolution from existing 3rd generation (3G) technologies to 4th generation (4G) mobile broadband technologies. LTE delivers increased peak data rates, improved spectrum efficiencies, reduction of air interface latency as well as other benefits. LTE provides a platform for bandwidth intensive mobile broadband applications such as video conferencing, mobile, online gaming and many other social and business applications. LTE is also optimized for IP traffic, allowing for additional benefits in terms of speed, integration and scalability. The course examines the market forces behind the creation of LTE, LTE’s core components and architecture, air interface, protocol stacks and control and user planes. The course traces a data call from an LTE enabled device or user equipment (UE) through the architecture out to the Internet and back to the UE. The course details the workings of the UE from power up to network acquisition as well as tracking and handover procedures for the mobile UE. Quality of Service (QoS), a key feature of LTE is discussed in all its aspects, from the radio network, through to the core network. The course also overviews key technologies and concepts associated with LTE including the IP Multimedia System (IMS) Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS), IPv6 and advanced antenna technologies such as MIMO. The course concludes with a discussion of how LTE integrates with existing 2G and 3G networks and architectures.
This course provides training on the technologies deployed in the network to accommodate the transition to Carrier Ethernet. The course starts with a review of the OSI model followed by an in depth analysis of the Transport Layer, Network Layer, Data Link Layer and Physical Layer. Some of the technologies examined include UDP, TCP, IP, Ethernet, ARP, RARP, Ethernet over SONET/SDH, PBB and MPLS. The course diagrams Ethernet backhaul architecture. Fiber optics is discussed in great detail including how fiber optics technology transports data signals and the standards for fiber optic cables. The course also covers the basics of fiber optic cable maintenance. The course includes a module instructing the basics of Carrier Ethernet and MPLS, both important transport technologies utilized in the backhaul. The course focuses on Carrier Ethernet’s structures and service models and MPLS’ ability to transport different types of traffic.
With increased demands in voice, data and video traffic over mobile broadband networks, existing T1 and other connections between the provider network and the cell site can no longer provide the bandwidth needs to meet the Service Level Agreements of the service provider’s customers. Mobile broadband wireless providers will deploy Ethernet in the backhaul primarily over fiber optics to ramp up to Gbps speeds.
This advanced networking course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to describe and understand the concepts associated with Digital Video and MPEG encoding. Participants will also be provided with the knowledge and skills to configure, monitor and troubleshoot a multicast enabled IPv4 network. This course is designed to transfer technical expertise IPv4 multicast technology and its applications, including video delivery. The course includes discussions on multicast addressing, functions of a multicast enabled network, the protocols required for multicast operation including IGMP and PIM, RP configuration, and multicast deployment models and design. Documentation Course materials consist of an IP Multicast - Digital Video Delivery student manual. The course will utilize Dynamips to for the hands on multicasting lab exercises.
