Protocols, Addressing, Routing

In the IT world, the TCP/IP protocol stack plays a predominant role. Even applications such as telephony, which formerly had nothing to do with IP, are increasingly being migrated to IP. No networker can do without knowing this protocol. The know-how imparted in theory and practice enables the participants to actively plan, set up, operate, and administrate IP-based networks.

Course Contents

• Routing and Routing Protocols (RIP, OSPF, IS-IS, and BGP-4)
• ICMP for Troubleshooting
• TCP: Ports, Flow Control, and Acknowledgment
• UDP and its Particularities
• Standardized Applications: HTTP, Telnet, SSH, DHCP, FTP...
• Voice over IP
• Hands-On Exercises at the Test Network

 Each participant will receive the comprehensive course documentation of the ExperTeach Networking series in German language. Optionally, we provide the printed version or an ExperTeach e-book.

Target Group

The course at hand imparts the basic know-how required for any networker. It addresses anyone who wishes to deal with the TCP/IP world from a technical viewpoint.

Knowledge Prerequisites

Basic network know-how as imparted e.g. in the course Networking Technologies is the prerequisite for a successful participation in this course.

Supplementary Courses

If you wish to deal with the topic of routing in depth, you should consider attending the overview course State-of-the-Art IP Routing - Routing Protocols-Compact or the special courses BGP-4 - The Routing Protocol in Detail, or OSPF - The Routing Protocol in Detail. If you are interested in MPLS, you should attend the MPLS - Architecture & Design in Detail course as the next event. Would you like to learn about the successor of IP, IPv6? In this case, you should choose the IPv6 - Addressing, Routing, and IPv4 Interworking course.
