Network Bootcamp: From the Home Network to Intermediate Dante in Two Hours With Patrick Killianey
Please note there is a fee associated with this registration.
Everything is going to IP - audio, video, lighting, and control are all good examples. This session forms a great base networking skillset for anyone working in audio or video in live or production environments. If you're comfortable setting up a home network, this session offers the concepts to understand intermediate sized systems and the terminology to interact with an IT department, as needed.
Throughout this class, network concepts will be brought to life on a live Dante™ network. Traffic patterns will be viewed through common utilities like Dante Controller, so attendees can gain a better understanding of how data flows and how the optimizations tools impact the traffic, as well as some guidelines to estimate the load the network can safely manage. Objectives:
Learn the Basics of Networking Logic: IP Address. Subnet Mask. Gateway. Reserved LAN Ranges. IP Addresses to Avoid. DHCP Devices with Multiple NICs
Learn How Traffic Can be Optimized: TCP vs UDP. Hubs vs Switche. Unicast, Multicast and Broadcast. QoS (Quality of Service). PTP (Precision Time Protocol) and Clocking
Structural Elements and Intermediate Logic: Trunk Lines. Broadcast Storms. STP (Spanning Tree Protocol). LAG (Link Aggregation Groups). VLANs & VLAN Tagging
