01 Jun Multicast Zero-to-Hero
The Micronics IP Multicast Zero-to-Hero course is designed to teach the students about IP Multicast as a technology in and of itself, not as an afterthought to unicast and very often, security. The course begins from the very basics of Multicast – starting from how to properly interpret a Multicast Routing Table’s output. But by the end of the course, topics as complex as inter-domain Multicast Routing would have been covered.
As you have come to expect from Micronics, the focus of the course is to help the students develop a solid foundation upon which they can build as they get deeper into the course. The goal, ultimately, is not just to teach the configuration of IP Multicast, but to provide a deep, conceptual understanding of it. The course runs for 5 consecutive Saturdays.
The format is vendor agnostic and the demos are performed on IOS-XE, IOS-XR and Junos devices.
There are no formal prerequisites for IP Multicast Zero-to-Hero, but we recommend you have an understanding of IP routing and IP routing protocols at CCNP level.
