IP Networking Course Fall 2015 (CLOSED)

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Oct 08, 2015

This is the only networking course designed specifically for video surveillance professionals.

The next IP Networking for Video Surveillance Course starts next Tuesday, October 13th.

Lots of general network training exists but none of it focuses on actual video surveillance systems or video surveillance problems. The IPVM courses solve this.

What the IPVM IP Networking Course Covers

In 10 sessions, using our industry-leading IP Networking Book, we cover the fundamentals of IP networking as it impacts video surveillance.

(1) Bandwidth

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.

(2) Addressing

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

Breaks down the key issues and options in using PoE to power IP cameras and the use of VLANs and QoS with network switches.

(5) Protocols

Covering TCP/UDP, Unicast/Multicast, NTP and SNMP, we explain the tradeoffs of each of these for using IP cameras.

(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.

(7) BICSI

Learn how IT organization BICSI's standards apply to video surveillance projects, including key installation issues of cabling and equipment.

(8) Network Security

Breaks down the use and tradeoffs of different password approaches, HTTPs, 802.1x and physical security measures to secure IP cameras and VMS servers.

(9) Wireless

Explains how wireless is used in video surveillance, looking at frequency ranges, bandwidth constraints and tradeoffs of topologies (PTP, PTMP, Mesh, Cellular).

(10) 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 (next being held in January 2016).

This IP networking course is for those with limited training in IT networks and limited experience managing them.

Course Calendar

The IP Networking course will meet live online, starting October 13th for 10 times over 5 weeks (Tuesday and Thursday at 11am - 12pm ET / 15:00 - 16:00 UTC).

Additionally, all classes are recorded so you can watch on-demand on-line anytime.

Here is the schedule / calendar:

Certification

At the end of classes, you will take a comprehensive final exam including multiple choice and essay questions. If you pass, you will become IPMVU IP Networking certified (see list of IPVM Certified Professionals)
