The course is split into three
days as follows:
Day 1 – Residential
Ideal for both beginners and individuals seeking to formalise and increate
their IP (Internet Protocol) networking knowledge, this course will provide
attendees an understanding of IP. With the vast majority of subsystems now
having the ability to be converged over an IP network, this is arguably the most
important topic to ensure attendees have a solid foundation in.
Topics covered include:
- Understanding the 7 layer OSI Model and how it relates
to networking (essential learning)
- Applying the OSI model to residential network
structure and setup
- Recognising and understanding basic network hardware
- IP Addressing - using the right addresses for the
- Basic network
Day 2 – Advanced Residential Networking
Attendees, who have completed the Residential Networking course, are now
ideally placed to study this more advanced course which builds on the knowledge
and skills previously gained.
Once the basics of IP Networking are understood (hint: Can you confidently
explain layers 1-3 of the OSI model?), this course will deliver attendees the
knowledge and skills required to start building more complex networks.
Topics covered include:
- File sharing between IP connected devices
- Remote access with Dynamic DNS
- The Client - Server model
- 'Ports' and 'Services'
- Access to LAN devices from the WAN via Port Forwarding
- Securing external access using VPNs (Virtual Private
- Understanding basic subnets
- Diving Networks using vLANs (Virtual LANs)
Day 3 – Wireless Residential Networking
This course rounds off CEDIA’s Networking School, comparing wireless to other
physical layer types, and explores the behaviours of RF considering data speed,
frequency and coverage. Attendees will learn the importance, and opportunities
of wireless security making sure customer networks are protected and how to
expand a wireless network to cover larger areas.
Typical subjects covered include:
- Understanding Wireless as a physical media
- Radio Frequency transmission as part of the
- Controlling and maximising wireless coverage using
different Antenna types
- Protecting wireless networks with wireless security
- Expanding wireless networks with additional access
- Controlling wireless networks with management systems
You will receieve an examination voucher code to take the ESC-N certification
exam at any Kryterion testing centre (there is possibility of taking the exam
via online proctoring if testing centres are temporarily closed).
There will be lots of time during the week for individual questions and topic
reviews. There are a maximum of 7 places available on this training track.
Hours will be from 09.30 to 16.30.
