Brocade Network Industry Protocol

3 days


This Instructor-led course provides an extensive view of networking concepts and technologies while exploring the standardized protocols used in networks today. It can also serve as a foundational course preparing students that are entering into the IP networking field needing a working knowledge of a networks structure and function. Studies include the physical and logical understanding of basic networking operations, Layer 2/3 addressing and standardized multi-vendor supported core, management and monitoring protocols. Multi-cast forwarding using PIM and IGMP protocols are discussed and an overview of popular WAN technologies deployed past in present.


This course is designed to complete an attendee's network foundational knowledge of common Industry Standard Protocols. This course also provides required knowledge for aspiring students seeking to become network administrators, system administrators, network architects, systems engineers, and technical support engineers engaging in installation, configuration, maintenance, and basic troubleshooting of IP networks.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
