Course Description


Product Details:

This book set consists of three volumes:

  • Data Networking
  • Telephony Networking
  • Convergence Technologies

Data Networking

The Data Networking course teaches students the fundamentals of networking. Through hands-on training, students will learn the vendor-independent networking skills and concepts necessary for entry-level professionals seeking employment in the Information Technology (IT) or telecommunications industries.

In Data Networking, students will learn to identify networking models and topologies, describe the function and purpose of network operating systems, and monitor system performance. Students will learn how various networking components map to the layers of the Open Systems Interconnection reference model (OSI/RM). Students will also learn about the process of packetization; learn to identify key networking protocols; and explore the nature, purpose and operating essentials of protocols that make up the TCP/IP suite. Students will learn about various LAN, WAN and wireless standards, and about wireless vulnerabilities and security. Students will explore the routing process, study Internet addressing, learn to identify address classes, learn about the use of private addresses, and learn to perform subnetting. Students will also learn how to use various TCP/IP diagnostic and troubleshooting tools.

This course prepares students to take the CTP (Convergence Technologies Professional) exam. All CTP courses offer Case Studies for class discussion about real-world skills applications. Guided, step-by-step labs provide opportunities to practice new skills. Students can challenge themselves and review their skills after each lesson in the Lesson Summary and Lesson Review sections. Additional skill reinforcement is provided in Activities, Optional Labs, Lesson Quizzes and a Course Assessment.

Telephony Networking

The Telephony Networking course provides detailed coverage of telephony standards and best practices for North America. Through hands-on training, students will learn the vendor-independent telephony skills and concepts necessary for entry-level professionals seeking employment in the telecommunications industry.

In Telephony Networking, students will learn about basic telephony concepts, including loop-start trunks, common telephony standards, and PBX elements. From Line A and Line B to exchange switches, students will learn how voice and data are routed across the global public switched telephone network.

Students will also learn about key infrastructure issues, including how equipment must be properly tested and secured. This course also focuses on specific troubleshooting techniques. Students will learn how to use common troubleshooting tools, including a digital multimeter, a tone-and-probe kit, a line-test handset (i.e., butt set), and other tools that allow you to wire analogue and digital lines. Finally, students will learn about analogue and digital signaling, including analogue loop-start methods, ISDN and SS7.

Convergence Technologies

The Convergence Technologies course teaches students the fundamental concepts, standards and practices related to converged networks. Through hands-on training, students will learn the vendor-independent networking skills and concepts required for entry-level professionals seeking employment in the Information Technology (IT) or telecommunications industries.

In Convergence Technologies, students will learn to identify the characteristics of circuit-based and packet switched technologies, identify differences between the call flow in convergence-based calls and the call flow in circuit-based calls, and identify the types of signaling protocols for converged networks. Students will identify the transport protocols used for real-time communications, and learn about the functions of gatekeepers and gateways. Students will also compare and contrast the three major signaling protocols for VoIP. Students will learn how to determine whether an existing network is capable of supporting convergent services, and they will identify the specific elements required for a successful VoIP implementation.

Students will also learn about common convergence devices, learn about codecs and their bandwidth requirements, and describe the impact of compressing voice in a network. Students will learn about various wireless convergence technologies, identify standards for transporting facsimile across convergent networks, and identify the features unified messaging. Students will also identify methods for providing video services through a converged solution.

Students will define delay, latency, jitter and wander, and identify their impact on real-time communications; and students will also identify the importance of a jitter buffer. Students will learn about the need for Quality of Service (QoS) and identify QoS technologies used in converged networks. In addition, students will learn to identify the factors that affect the bandwidth of packetized voice, and identify requirements for transporting modem and fax transmissions through a converged solution. Students will also identify industry standards for determining voice and video quality, troubleshoot convergent communications over wireless networks, and identify security concerns and solutions.

This course prepares students to take the CTP (Convergence Technologies Professional) exam. All CTP courses offer Case Studies for class discussion about real-world skills applications. Guided, step-by-step labs provide opportunities to practice new skills. Students can challenge themselves and review their skills after each lesson in the Lesson Summary and Lesson Review sections.
