This course builds on the experience gained from Industrial Ethernet (CT1), providing network experts with intensive theoretical and practical knowledge about TCP/IP, IP communication and multicasting. Special emphasis is placed on deploying TCP/IP and multicasting in complex industrial environments. This enables participants to provide comprehensive support, both for demanding projects and their daily work.

Additional notes

Industrial networks must connect an ever-increasing number of technologies and users - while at the same time becoming more flexible. To keep pace with the growing size and performance requirements of these complex networks, system administrators and support technicians need comprehensive technical and practical knowledge about IP communication, multicasting and network security.
