nettbsws Basic Network Troubleshooting Using Wireshark 21 hours The purpose of the course is to provide the participant with basic knowledge of the Wireshark protocol analyzer. The course focuses on deep understanding of the tool, as the basics for using it for network troubleshooting. The course starts with packet capturing, capture and display filters, statistical features and the basics of the expert system. By the end of the course the participant will be able to perform basic troubleshooting in small to medium size networks. The course is based on theory, class exercise and labs.

muipv4 Understanding Multicast using IPv4 21 hours Transport of baseband audio and video streams across IP networks using multicast signalling protocols is becoming increasingly used in broadcast networks. This 3 day course/workshop covers the theory and practice of implementing these protocols within IP and Ethernet networks. The practical element of the course will use Cisco L3 switches and the multicast streamers and receivers will use the cross -platform VLC application. It is not necessary to have any expertise in the Cisco command line as the configuration of the devices can be instructor-led if required. However the course is intended to have at least 50% practical content and can be customised or even lengthened (to examine the protocols in more detail) if run as a single company event. Assignment and use of the Class D Multicast IP address space. Mapping multicast MAC addresses (L2) to multicast IP addressses (L3). An overview of the Real time Transport Protocol (RTP). Comparison between the 3 versions of the Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) and their use in requesting RTP streams within VLANs. IGMP snooping on a L2 network. IGMP queriers and querier resilience. The use of multicast routing using Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) on an inter-VLAN and/or L3 routed network. The difference between PIM operated in Dense Mode PIM-DM and in Sparse Mode (SM). Registration of multicast streams with a Rendezvous Point (RP). Important timers used in IGMP and PIM protocols. Gateway resilience using Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) and mapping resilient multicast forwarding at L3 and L2 using the Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP). Important timers and parameters in VRRP and RSTP. Operation and use of the multicast routing table to forward IP packets using a multicast destination IP address. The differences between Any Source Multicast (ASM) and Source Specific Multicast (SSM). Forwarding of multicast streams using shortest  path and shared trees. Use of Reverse Path Forwarding for loop avoidance in multicast forwarding. An overview of the Session Announcement Protocol (SAP) and it's use in describing and announcing RTP multicast streams that can be requested using IGMP. Practical: Wireshark will be used to analyse the multicast signalling (IGMP and SAP) and also the multicast media delivery (RTP). Lab 1.  Multicast Forwarding at L2 and IGMP Snooping. Lab 2.  Multicast Forwarding at L3 across VLANs using IGMP and PIM. Lab 3.  Announcement of multicast streams in L2/L3 networks using SAP and the mini-SAP Server. Lab 4.  Load balancing and failover of multicast streams carried in separate VLANs across a resilient Layer 2 network consisting of leaf (access) switches and 2 redundant spine (core) switches. Lab 5:  Multicast forwarding across VLAN boundaries in resilient Layer 3 networks consisting of leaf (access) switches and 2 redundant spine (core) switches. Lab 6.  Multicast forwarding over a routed L3 network using PIM-SM.
