IP Workshop

5 Days / 10 Live Online Sessions (0900-1230) / Technical Level: Level 3

Course Code: IP2900

Course Summary

The Internet Protocol (IP) is the key underpinning transmission and switching technology for almost all communication network types and a core skill for telecoms and IT engineers. Theoretical knowledge of how IP networks perform and hands-on experience of how to configure network devices and troubleshoot problems is offered through this intensive five-day course. Delegates work with a state-of-the-art equipment ‘pod’ whilst being led through the key theories.

Who would benefit

Engineers who require a thorough understanding of IP protocols and network architecture, together with hands-on experience of router configuration, testing and fault finding.


A good knowledge of TCP/IP is required. This can be gained by attending Wray Castle’s TCP/IP course (QS2501).
