Hands-On TCP/IP Networking Workshop

Hands-On TCP/IP Networking Workshop: TCP/IP is the communications protocol suite on which the Internet and most commercial networks operate. In this course, we will cover a comprehensive technical overview of TCP/IP. Extensive hands-on exercises provide the practical experience you need to configure a host, employ TCP/IP tools, use application services and access TCP/IP-based internetworking.

This workshop is a structured approach to the concepts and principles of the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) protocol suite, how the most important protocols function, and their basic configuration.

Who Should Attend

Technicians, Engineers, and Supervisors Operations individuals that will provide IP configuration and support services Development Engineers that must know TCP/IP networking in order to provide hardware and software solutions Network Design Engineers that need to understand TCP/IP services and applications Network Management individuals that are providing element and network management tools Network Administrators and IT professionals Technical sales and marketing individuals that must be able to correlate features with functionality Certification Track individuals that need to expand their knowledge and studies

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the students will:

  • Learn the essential elements of the TCP/IP protocol suite
