CEDIA Takes Home Networking Workshops on the Road

Workshops Hosted at Institute of Audio Research July 11, 2017
Why This Matters

The Principles of Networking Workshop introduces participants to networking fundamentals such as IP addressing, wireless network planning and implementation, antennas, network performance, and wireless security.

 
CEDIA will be hosting a series of hands-on networking workshops at the New York City-based Institute of Audio Research. Two of the workshops will cover introductory networking topics and one will cover advanced concepts. 

"Knowing how to properly configure and secure a home network is one of the most valuable and important skills sets an integrator can have in this age of ever-expanding connected devices,” said Dave Pedigo, CEDIA VP of emerging technologies. “Our networking courses regularly sell out so when the opportunity came to take this training on the road, we knew we had to do it.” 

The Principles of Networking Workshop introduces participants to networking fundamentals such as IP addressing, wireless network planning and implementation, antennas, network performance, and wireless security. This two-day workshop will be offered August 4-5, 2017 and September 22-23, 2017.

CEDIA will offer the Advanced Networking Concepts Workshop October 27-28, 2017. Participants can look forward to eight in-depth, hands-on lab exercises that will test their skills in setting up virtual local area networks (VLANs) and virtual private networks (VPNs).

Registration for each of the workshops is open, with a cost of $750 for CEDIA members and $950 for non-members. Early bird savings are available. Additional information, including how to register for the networking workshops can be found online
