Last Chance - July 2018 IP Networking Course

Author: John Scanlan, Published on Jul 12, 2018

Registration ends today, Thursday. Register now.

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.

What the IPVM IP Networking Course Covers

In 12 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) Installation

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.

(9) Cybersecurity

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

(10) Hacking

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.

(11) Wireless

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 (next being held in October 2018).

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 July 17th for 12 times over 6 weeks (Tuesday and Thursday), and will meet at 11:00 am EST 3:00 pm UTC.

The course schedule is listed below:
