In stock

The Hikvision Networking Fundamentals course is designed to give an overview of networking within a video security network.  Networking terminology is critical in communications within the networking community in designing and implementing a video security network. The course covers the different types of communication within the network, including unicast and broadcast traffic and their impact on performance.  A basic understanding of networking protocols including IP addressing, aids in the understanding of industry standards as well as in the design and implementation of the video network.   The function of switches within the network environment is covered including the basic functions of the filtering of traffic for the best performance.  Basic network design will be explored to provide the best performance within a stand-alone video network or one added to an existing network. Basic troubleshooting tools will be used evaluate network performance and find issues.
