IP Network Essentials for Engineers
This 2 day course will build your understanding of the fundamentals of networking, in which data is transported as packets switched and routed around a common infrastructure. You will learn the key network protocols used and the network layers that are commonly used to understand their scope and function in routing packets between IT hosts and from network to network. The emphasis will be on Ethernet (layer 2) and Internet Protocol (layer 3). You will learn the essentials of enterprise networks and the ways that a network infrastructure can used for media applications.
This course can be delivered online in the current climate and can also be customised on request.

Modern businesses rely on IT networking for much of what they do and IT networks have evolved over the last 50 years to the point that they have the scale and performance to handle video and audio content cost-effectively. This is driving change in broadcast and media businesses. Most are in transition from bespoke digital interconnection standards, such as SDI and AES3 with their dedicated cabling and hardware, to a high-performance IT infrastructure with commodity-based compute-engines running software applications that serve, process, move and store pictures and sound over a suitably designed IT network with common cabling infrastructure. A similar transition has taken place in distribution and playout as IT servers become the norm and content is increasingly consumed by audiences via the internet.
