  • Solid foundation in IP-based systems
  • Coverage of core protocols used in Internet
  • Familiarity with technologies used to implement IP
  • Understanding of strengths, weaknesses, performance abilities, and limitations of various IP-based systems
  • Coverage of the Internet and TCP/IP networks
  • Network security basics
  • We can adapt this TCP/IP Networks Advanced Training course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
  • If you are familiar with some aspects of this TCP/IP Networks Advanced course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
  • We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the TCP/IP Networks Advanced course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
  • If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the TCP/IP Networks Advanced course in a manner understandable to lay audiences.

The target audience for this TCP/IP Networks Advanced Training course:
