Course summary

This course is an excellent introduction to the workings of IP networking. An important part of any network is the local LAN connection; this course breaks open the LAN, and looks at the Ethernet technology, Switching and Virtualised LANs or VLANs.

Who would benefit

This course is aimed at any network engineers in planning, design, implementation or support as well as management roles. It provides the right level of introduction to the world of LANs which can also be a stepping stone to the broader implementations of Ethernet in the Metro Ethernet or Carrier Ethernet worlds.

  • LANs, MANs and WANs
  • The Link Layer Protocols
