IP Networking for Broadcast Engineers is an intensive instructor-led class focused on major IP networking topics. The goal is to equip the broadcast engineer with the knowledge and understanding of IP networking fundamentals. The morning will focus on the principals of IP networking including the OSI and TCP models, physical layer technologies, IP addressing, IP subnetting, and applying best practices in the design of an IP address plan.

The afternoon will focus on applying the morning fundamentals to the understanding of routing protocols, switching fundamentals, VLAN implementation, and security best practices in network design.

The lecture will be supplemented with network design examples presented by virtual demonstration and class exercises designed to apply learned concepts in a practical manner. Students will receive a complete set of class notes, class exercises, and reference materials.

This class should not be considered a certification preparation class. However the material presented should provide an excellent background in IP networking technology for those pursuing the SBE Certified Broadcast Networking Technologist (CBNT) or the Certified Broadcast Networking Engineer (CBNE) certifications.

Goals and Deliverables

- Awareness of Major IP Networking Topics (broadcast focused)
