About this Course

Code TPIP2900
Duration 5 Days

The Internet Protocol (IP) lies at the heart of the transformation affecting almost every aspect of telecommunication network operation. This technology is designed to route data packets between data networks in a resilient way. Initially, it became globally significant because of its role as the routing technology in the Internet. However, IP, and many other closely related protocols and technologies, are today being incorporated into structured fixed and mobile telecommunication networks.


A good theoretical knowledge of TCP/IP is a minimum requirement. This can be gained by attending the Wray Castle TCP/IP Protocol Suite (QS2501) course.

The telecommunications and information technology industries have evolved considerably in the last decade, both in terms of service models and supporting technologies. In particular, the Internet Protocol (IP) is now established as the key underpinning transmission and switching technology for almost all communications network types. Mastery of internet echnologies is now a core skill for telecoms and ITengineers alike. Engineers in these converging industries require not only a theoretical knowledge of how IP networks perform, but also hands-on experience of how to configure network devices and troubleshoot problems. This course provides engineers and other technical staff with the opportunity to gain that hands-on experience. In this five-day course, students are provided with an equipment 'pod' containing state-of-the-art routers and switches and are led through the key theories before completing configuration and troubleshooting exercises. The hands-on exercises account for 60% of the course. Completion of the course will provide students with a solid foundation upon which to ase further self-study towards the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) qualification
