Course Level: introduction- to intermediate- level

These two webinars focus on TCP/IP based networking fundamentals in an Ethernet environment. Subjects include TCP/IP and UDP Fundamentals, IP Addressing, Sub-netting Basics, an Introduction to IPv6, Switching Fundamentals, VLAN Use, Routing Fundamentals, Quality of Services (QoS) Basics, and Networking Security Concerns. Where appropriate, the application focus will be oriented towards a broadcast technical plant. Due to the amount of material to be covered in detail, the webinar will be presented in two parts. It is recommended that both parts be undertaken.
