Réseaux, concepts et mise en œuvre

This training on networks will allow you to understand and implement all the fundamental concepts specific to corporate computer networks. All the really important aspects will be discussed, in particular the functionalities and the implementation of the interconnection equipment, with an emphasis on routers, the essentials of TCP / IP and higher level protocols such as DNS, DHCP, HTTP etc. ... Finally the participants will be able to configure and interconnect client workstations under Windows or Unix / Linux.




This course concerns engineers, technical sales representatives, project owners, IT specialists, IT correspondents looking for a technical introduction to networks. It is an excellent basis for taking more advanced courses in the same field.


Participants must know how to use at least the main applications of a Windows workstation (email, Web browser, office automation, etc.)
