Gigabit Ethernet Training

Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) training provides a technical introduction to Ethernet and GigE. GigE builds on top of the Ethernet protocol, but increases speed tenfold over Fast Ethernet to 1000 Mbps, or 10 gigabit per second (Gbps) and beyond. Gigabit Ethernet allows Ethernet to scale from 10/100 Mbps at the desktop to 100 Mbps up the riser to 100+ Gbps in the data center.

Who Should Attend

This course provides the engineers and technicians need to get out in front of this wave of change. Much more than an overview, this class provides a thorough understanding of the 10G-400G Ethernet: its protocol, its core functionality, the various options, and error recovery strategies.

Course Objectives

This course provides you with a comprehensive technical foundation in Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet. Upon completion of this course, the attendees will be able to:

  • Identify the concepts of Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, 10, 40 and 100 and 400 Gigabit Ethernet networking.
  • Identify how to design, troubleshoot and maintain an Ethernet network and improve its performance.
