Students who attend the Basic Industrial Ethernet course will walk away with the confidence and knowledge to design a simple Ethernet network and implement it 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:
- Physical Cabling – Students will learn the basics of copper and fiber cabling, TIA standards, and Structured Cabling implementation.
- Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) Model – How it applies to networking and guides manufacturers of networking technology.
- Switch Theory – How switches function and what role they serve in a network topology.
- VLANS – Configuration and implementation.
- IP Addressing – What is an IP address and how is it derived.
- Subnetting – What is subnetting and considerations around subnetting.
- Industrial Protocols – Basics of industrial protocols and their history.
