Professional Certificate of Competency in Advanced TCP/IPBased Industrial Networking (Blended Learning)

Course Description


This professional development course is designed for engineers and technicians who need practical knowledge in the design and troubleshooting of Industrial Ethernet networks, as well as the selection, installation, and configuration of components such as routers and switches.

This course deals in depth with the underlying TCP/IP protocols, and specifically addresses both design and configuration issues related to IPv4 and the more recent IPv6.

Learners are able to:
• Covers the more advanced aspects and applications of Ethernet such as advanced switching and routing, CCTV over IP, Modbus, Industrial Security, Intrinsically Safe applications, switched rings (including the latest IEC 62439-3 redundant ring standard), and highly deterministic Ethernet-based field buses (e.g., for servo control) capable of 1-millisecond repetition rates and jitter of less than 1 microsecond.
• Access to remote laboratories and cutting-edge simulation software, allowing you to achieve hands-on outcomes.
