Networking Essentials

Networking Essentials is a new set of training courses that provide both theory and practice in a condensed and focused manner. The courses are designed to provide the tools necessary to not only understand Ethernet technology, but also how to commission, manage and monitor infrastructure equipment. After attending, participants should have a better overall understanding of data transportation via Ethernet.
