To meet these demands, CEDIA has created a whole suite
of IP Networking courses to improve the understanding and skill set of attendees
within the industry.
The course will enable attendees to implement TCP/IP connected hardware in
many of the situations encountered in the residential environment.
The course is split into three days as follows:
Day 1 – Residential Networking
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
Applying the OSI model to residential network structure
Recognising and understanding basic network hardware
Addressing - using the right addresses for the right job
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
The Client - Server model
'Ports' and 'Services'
Access to LAN
devices from the WAN via Port Forwarding
Securing external access using VPNs
(Virtual Private Networks)
Understanding basic subnets
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 Electromagnetic spectrum
Controlling and maximising wireless
coverage using different Antenna types
Protecting wireless networks with
Expanding wireless networks with additional access
Controlling wireless networks with management systems
certification exam is held on the final day of the week after a revision
session, and comprises 100 multiple choice questions to be completed within two
There will be lots of time during the week for individual questions and topic
reviews. There are a maximum of 12 places available on this training track.
Hours will be from 09.30 to 16.30.
