Wireless LAN Operations Courses

WLAN course1

We are told that 60% or more of customer calls to their service providers are wireless networking related.  The courses in this category have an immediate impact by reducing call backs, reducing truck rolls, and improving customer service.  From the CSR, to the field technician, the following courses efficiently address this need for improved understanding and skills in WLAN Operations.

 

IPv6 Courses

v6cloudWith the supply of IPv4 addresses exhausted, everyone in networking is scrambling to convert their networks and their knowledge/skills to IPv6.  Tier 2 and Tier 3 Rural networks are rapidly tackling the challenge of conversion to IPv6.  Most tier 1 service providers are already done.  These Hands On courses teach IPv6 from the basics to the advanced subjects.  Whether you are a field technician, central office engineer, or IT person, you need a solid hands-on skill base on IPv6.

Wireshark Courses

WiresharkFinWireshark Packet Analysis skills are critical in today's networks.  Whether you are a field tech, a data center engineer, or a generalist in IT, you need to know how to use Wireshark.  This free tool has been under the radar, or even kept off the radar, for far to long.  The most common problem reported is "my network is running slow".  Swapping equipment, or re-booting gear, temporarily masks the problem.  The solution is to capture and analyze packets, and learn how to troubleshoot the issues, while learning how the Internet actually works!  Here are the most popular Wireshark classes.

IPv4 Courses

v4cloudThe great Internet that we know and love suceeded because of the Internet Protocol version 4.  The courses in this category will provide hands on skills and knowledge training focused on IPv4 operations.  Knowing these subjects is critical to supporting Internet based services for any technical person, whether you are in support, or installation and maintenance.

Wireless Courses - Wi-Fi and Cellular

wirelessicnUnderstanding Wireless, both Wi-Fi and Cellular technologies, is critical in today's networks as everyone uses wireless in some form or fashion.  The courses in this category are targeted to developers and testers using the appropriate level of technology depth to provide knowledge, understanding and skills in their job functions.

Enabling the Internet of Things Courses
