Testing Internetworking Protocols

( Duration: 2 Days )

Internetworking Protocols Testing training course provides the methodology for testing Ethernet, VLAN, IP and QoS devices. This course provides in-depth coverage of performance testing and covers the relevant RFC’s focused on Performance testing. The Course also covers IP networking concepts and will give the Participants the details on building the test suites required for Performance testing.

This course also builds the good background for Engineers who will be using the network test tools for functional, performance and scalability testing.

By attending Internetworking Protocols Testing workshop, Participants will learn to:

  • Explain fundamental ideas associated with Ethernet and the PPP point-to-point protocols. For Ethernet, explain CSMA/CD and MAC addresses
  • Explain the fundamental concepts associated with modern Ethernet switches, including full-duplex and collision-free networks, VLANs, spanning-trees, and adaptive-learning
  • Explain how ARP works in IPv4 and explain how broadcast can be used for link reachability.
  • Setup a host and network in terms of IP addressing
  • Explain how trace-route and ping work, as well as ICMP redirects, and other ICMP mechanisms
  • Work with IPv4 addresses in terms of subnetting, VLSM, and supernetting
  • Explain the basic ideas behind sliding window protocols in general, and the TCP protocol in particular
  • Compare and contrast TCP and UDP in terms of the applications that use them
  • Compare and constrast vector-distance and link-state routing algorithms
  • Explain the architecture of application-layer protocols including HTTP, FTP, SMTP, DNS, and TELNET
  • Describe how layer 3 and layer 7 firewalls operate
  • Explain network attacks based on arp-spoofing, and IP address spoofing
  • Explain techniques involved in the Morris worm, and other network-based attacks
  • Program network-based applications using the socket mechanism

  • Basics of networking protocols and network fundamentals
  • C programming
  • Data structures
  • Process management including client-server abstraction
  • Finite-state machines

  • QA /Test Engineers & Leads
  • Network Analysts
  • Technical managers responsible for hands-on Device and system testing for performance analysis, validation and verification
