Networking Technologies

The Relevant Details at One Glance


In the past years, the networking world has been strongly influenced by a trend away from classic technologies towards All-IP. In this context, the course at hand offers you a comprehensive overview of current networking concepts—from transmission technology to the Next Generation Network. This is done both from the viewpoint of network operators and of enterprise structures. The course imparts a conceptual understanding of the different networking technologies and their fields of application. As a result, the participants will learn to use the corresponding terminology competently. New developments such as Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) round off the table of contents.
