Students who attend the Advanced Industrial Ethernet course will walk away with the foundation to deploy a complex and distributed Ethernet network in their facility. Our courses are taught by instructors who have a background in the industrial world which allows them to offer perspectives unique to challenges that Controls Engineers and Technicians face on a day-to-day basis.
Topics discussed during this one-day training include:
- Spanning Tree Protocol – Basics of the IEEE 802.1D standard as well as differences between Cisco Per-VLAN Spanning Tree (PVST) and Multiple Spanning Tree (MST).
- Inter-VLAN Routing – Use cases for applying inter-VLAN routing.
- Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP) – How to effectively use DHCP on the plant floor.
- Multicast – Why do we use multicast and what are its advantages/disadvantages.
- Redundancy Protocols – Resilient Ethernet Protocol, EtherChannel, and Flex Links.
- Network Address Translation (NAT) – Overview of the versions of NAT and their implementation.
- Security – Access Control Lists (ACLs), port security, and concept of least privilege.
