Register for IT For Engineers, our popular industrial networking classes created specifically for engineers.
Moving light years beyond isolated HMI and SCADA systems that pass limited amounts of data, we can now leverage Ethernet, Internet, Wi-Fi and Cellular technologies to relay information anywhere, anytime. To deploy this new technology, design engineers and Industrial IT professionals should be familiar with the important concepts behind Industrial Ethernet. Gain basic knowledge required for implementation of an Industrial Ethernet network. Classes are non-vendor specific.
- Provides engineers with the knowledge necessary to bring Ethernet technology to the industrial controls world
- Helps engineers integrate their own control designs into corporate networks
CLASS 1 – DECEMBER 2, 2021 Network Essentials:
A beginner level class focused on the instruction to the Industrial Network and the principals which guide it’s use. This includes a walk though of the OSI 7 Layer model, network terminology, hardware and media. Designed for little to no experience with networking.
CLASS 2 – DECEMBER 9, 2021 – Ethernet Mechanics:
An Intermediate level class designed to illustrate how and what happens to facilitate ethernet communication across a network. This includes a dive into the Ethernet frame header, redundancy protocols, and virtual local area networks (VLAN). Including a live LAB demonstration of VLAN concepts. During the demo packet capture and analysis tools will be demonstrated.
CLASS 3 – DECEMBER 16, 2021 – IP Mechanics:
An Intermediate level class designed to illustrate how and what happens to facilitate IP based communications across different networks. This includes a dive into the IP header, addressing and subnets, routing basics, network address translation (NAT). Including a live LAB demonstration of NAT (both Source NAT and Destination NAT). . During the demo packet capture and analysis tools will be demonstrated.
