In this course, participants will learn the essentials of Ethernet and IP networking. The curriculum begins with cabling and works up to switching and routing, covering types of traffic that exist in the network, the associated addressing and how the devices themselves handle or distribute the traffic.
The Practical portion provides instruction on how to commission an Ethernet switch as well as how to segment and manage traffic for efficiency and performance. There are hands-on sessions for troubleshooting, switch security, traffic segmentation via VLANs, traffic filtering and network resiliency via redundancy.
End Users, System Integrators, Controls Engineers, Distributor Automation Specialists, and anyone who wishes to properly troubleshoot, maintain, evolve, and support an Industrial Ethernet network.
No previous knowledge of the subject is required. The participant should bring a laptop with Ethernet connection and an operating system CD. Administrator rights are required.
