Multicast Zero-to-Hero

Multicast Zero-to-Hero

Course Description:

 

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.

Prerequisite Knowledge:

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.

 

Course Delivery Method:

This boot camp is delivered online through Webex.

 

Boot Camp Hours:
