**Requirements: **Hands-on portion requires a PC or Apple computer with a USB C port or bring your own dongle with network capabilities. (No Chrome Books or Tablets.)
Prerequisite: Dante Certification Level 2, Second Edition
After completing Dante Certification Level 3 (2nd Edition), students will understand the fundamentals of Layer 3 enterprise networks and how Dante Domain Manager helps span massive network topologies for discovery, synchronization and media transport. Since this class covers the individual streams Dante uses, students will also be prepared to engage with converged networks where IT policies block all traffic by default.
Before attending this class, students should have passed Dante Certification Level 2, Second Edition. The original Level 2 class will not be sufficient for the topics that will be discussed in this session — the new Level 2 class has substantial new content that must be understood to succeed in this class.
After going through Level 3, students will have a chance to see a Dante ecosystem using Dante Domain Manager. Students then will be able to connect networks together and use Dante Domain Manager to add DDM features to their own Dante Ecosystem.
This “Live Prep Session” is an abridged version of the classes that are available “on-demand” at https://audinate.com/certify. The focused live session addresses topics most people understand least and will cover the essential skills to set those topics up.
For the best score on the Dante Certification Tests, it is still recommended that students also watch the on-demand classes, which do cover all tested topics. The benefit of the live class is the opportunity to ask questions of the instructors and work with a live system.
The certification tests are taken online. Time is not allocated for the certification tests in this session, though students are welcome to remain after the class (up to 45 minutes) to take the test or complete them at another time. If the after-class time is not enough to complete the test,
Upon completion, attendees will:
Understand the basics of Layer 3 networking commonly employed in enterprise networks and appreciate why networks are designed that way at scale.
Be able to design, setup and maintain a Dante system in a Layer 3 environment using Dante Domain Manager.
Gain an understanding of networking that should foster exceptionally informed conversations with IT departments, helping attendees build a better, collaborative relationship with members of that department.
Have brought Dante Domain Manager into the networks they built in Level 1 and Level 2 to help manage their devices like a brief introduction. This is ideal for AV technicians who are taking on more responsibility with network management or whose Dante networks are growing to the point that it may be wise to engage some managed switch features.
**Registration Notes: **_Because this class requires a network switch per student, the number of seats is limited. This course is ideal for technical associates or business partners to take the class together. When the class fills up, we will have a link for wait list so you can be bumped in if someone drops out. _
