IP Networking Course Spring 2022 Overview
Learn to set up an IP video surveillance system: configuring a managed switch, connecting IP cameras, VLANs, QoS, bandwidth management, and network security. Aimed at people with limited experience managing IT networks.
This is the only networking course designed specifically for video surveillance professionals.
Lots of network training exists but none of it really explains how it relates to actual video surveillance systems or focuses on video surveillance problems. The IPVM courses solve this.
The IP Networking course will meet live online, starting May 3rd 2022. This course will meet 12 times over 6 weeks (Tuesday and Thursday for 1 hour from 11am ET to 12pm ET). The course schedule is below:
In 12 sessions, using our industry-leading IP Networking Book, we cover the fundamentals of IP networking as it impacts video surveillance.
The course starts with bandwidth, one of the key challenges of running IP video over networks, breaking down what drives camera bandwidth consumption and the ranges of network speeds available.
Teaches network discovery and setup of IP camera addresses, choosing between dynamic and static, public and private IP addresses.
(3) Network Hardware
Explains how network hardware including switches, routers, extenders NICs, and CPEs are used in IP video surveillance systems.
(4) PoE, VLANs, and QoS
(6) Network Cabling
Explains the different forms of network cabling, the practical tradeoffs between UTP and STP, and best practices in cabling IP networks connected to IP cameras and recorders.
Learn how IT organization BICSI's standards apply to video surveillance projects, including key installation issues of cabling and equipment.
(8) Remote Access
In this class, we'll cover the popular and most secure methods of accessing video surveillance via VPNs, DDNS, 'phone home' methods, and others.
Breaks down the use and tradeoffs of different password approaches, HTTPs, 802.1x, and physical security measures to secure IP cameras and VMS servers.
This class is a survey of recent major attacks on networked security gear, examines manufacturer response, and which common brands are best/worst at protecting against these threats.
Explains how wireless is used in video surveillance, looking at frequency ranges, bandwidth constraints, and tradeoffs of topologies (PTP, PTMP, Mesh, Cellular).
(12) Managed Networks
To cap off the course, IPVM shows and explains a live IP video surveillance system, configuring a managed switch and connecting IP cameras, including VLANs, QoS, bandwidth management, network security, and more.
Who Should and Should NOT Take this Course
If you have IT networking expertise/knowledge (e.g., have or could pass the CCNA or Network+ certifications), you should not take this course. The better course for you is our IP Camera Course.
This IP networking course is for those with limited training in IT networks and limited experience managing them.
The course will be lead by John Scanlan from IPVM. In addition to heading up IPVM's network courses, John is an integral contributor to video coverage and testing. Before coming to IPVM, John worked as a FE for several retailers & banks, owned a small business dealing communications equipment to hedge funds, and before that was a regional IT Manager.
John will lead each session, with others from IPVM moderating questions and providing feedback on related IPVM research and testing.
Additionally, all classes are recorded so you can watch on-demand online anytime.
At the end of classes, you will take a cumulative final exam including multiple-choice and short answer questions. If you pass, you will earn an IPVM IP Networking certificate of course completion (see list of current IPVM Certificate Holders).
See what previous students said:
We send IP Networking students a survey where we ask, "How has this training helped you with your job?"
Here are some samples of responses:
- "I don't feel as overwhelmed dealing with IP based equipment as I did previously."
- "This course and its technical content has opened my eyes and broadened my understanding of all of the different components and equipment that are needed for building both compliant and efficient video surveillance networks."
- "It highlighted some serious security risks and problems that we face every day, things people (including myself) wouldn't even think about."
- "This training has helped with my job as I support integrating surveillance systems with my company's access control products."
- "This course has enabled me to see all aspects of integrating security cameras when planning an installation."
