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.


Please note – A working knowledge in one or more of IT, electronics or media technology with a recognized technology related academic qualification is required for this course. Delegates need to have basic IT user skills and should bring a laptop that has a wired network port or suitable adapter along with them to the training.
