It has been said that the future of audio and video is on packet-switched networks. In the past, a label on a cable and the points it was connected between told you almost everything you needed to know about the circuit and signal flowing. The circuit and the signal were almost one in the same. As system topologies for professional audio & video progressed from analog to digital, much of broadcasting technology remained connected by point-to-point circuits. To change a signal path, you changed a circuit path.
Join us for this webinar as Edwin Bukont, M.Sc., CTS, CSRE, E2 Technical Services & Solutions, and Shane Toven, CPBE, CBNT, senior broadcast engineer, KLOVE.com and Air 1 Broadcast Networks discuss the advances in modern packet-switched networks or IP Networks. This webinar will help you understand how to troubleshoot IP networks and differentiate between physical and logical concerns. Participants should already have a grasp of the basics of modern networking through Layer 4 of the OSI model.
