Course Description:

Ethernet was invented as a Local Area Network protocol that busted the ceiling of bandwidth at the time (1980’s).  Today Ethernet is more than a LAN protocol.  It runs in metropolitan networks, and even as a Wide Area Network service.  Having hands-on experience configuring and observing how Ethernet, VLANs, and Ethernet switching works is crucial in operating a network today.  This swift, one day, 8 hr. class uses a “follow me” learning approach to build skills, the student will get a clear understanding of Ethernet at Layer 2.

Course Objectives:

To develop a “hands-on” skill set targeted at Ethernet, Ethernet Switching and VLAN networking in the following key areas:

  • Ethernet 802.x
  • Local Area Networking
  • MAC Addressing format, learning, unlearning
  • Ethernet Network Topologies and Cabling Options
  • Loop Prevention in Ethernet networks
  • Broadcast Domains
  • Virtual LANs


The target audience for this course is anyone in Engineering, Test, Customer Support, Technical Marketing, or even Sales and Marketing that requires a solid and complete understanding of the fundamental operations of Ethernet and Ethernet Switching and desires hands-on skills that can be applied to their job function.

Ideal candidates are:

  • Operations individuals that will provide Ethernet configuration and support services
  • Network Design Engineers that need to understand Ethernet and Ethernet VLANs
  • Network Management individuals that are providing element and network management tools
  • Technical sales individuals that must be able to correlate features with functionality
  • Technical marketing individuals that want more than just a basic understanding of Ethernet
  • Certification Track individuals that need to expand their knowledge and studies
  • Network Administrators

Course Prerequisites:

This course is designed to appeal to anyone needing the skills and knowledge of Ethernet and Ethernet Switching. The ideal student will have some experience in networking and operations, however no prior knowledge is necessary.

All students must attend with a lap-top computer with Remote Desktop Connection software supporting Remote Desktop Protocol in order to interface to the Router Labs (this software comes with Windows, and is available free for MAC OSx and Linux). If the course is held at a classroom where computers are available, the Lap-top computer will not be required.

Course Materials:

Students will be provided with a Course Student Guide and a Lab Guide. Also, a lab system for configuration and labs will be provided.
