This Hands-On course will enable attendees to upgrade their knowledge about how Video and Television is carried over IP in state-of-the art systems. At the end of the course attendees will better appreciate how reliable distribution systems using Quality of Service networks can be engineered and faults found using open source and freely available tools, in particular Wire Shark.
TV and video delivery systems increasingly run over networks based upon IP within TV head-ends as well as for delivery and distribution to customers over access networks. Engineers need an appreciation of how these services can be deployed reliably in redundant systems.
The course will comprise extensive Hands-On labs deploying learning by discovery techniques to reinforce practical field service skills.
The course will teach you how to analyze traffic running between networks and set top boxes, between switches and routers within distribution networks, multiplexer streams running between head ends and network management systems as well as locating the source of blocking, freezing and picture breakup.
Attendees will also analyze the protocol exchanges and experiment to identify how failures impact the service and how security attacks can be detected and defeated.
This class can also be customized to add additioanl Hands-On sessions monitoring and troubleshooting live services, upon request.
