Training Dept. to Lead Workshops at CEDIA EXPO

The seminars will focus on Ethernet- and TCP/IP-based networks.

Indianapolis, IN–Training Dept. seminars will offer two new all-day workshops on Home Networks at CEDIA EXPO.

Home Networks Fundamentals one-day workshop provides a firm foundation in the technology and hardware of Ethernet and TCP/IP based networks for the home. It covers what custom installers need to know to offer home network installation to customer including WAN access technology, how to compare service providers, consumer vs. professional equipment, and network architectures to support distributed AV applications. This course demystifies the complexities of home network protocols, wireless operation, LAN security, router operation and selection, and much more. The course will demonstrate actual network equipment operation and configuration in the class.

The Advanced Home Network Design and Installation one-day workshop covers the more “advanced” aspects of designing and installing home data networks to support everything from audio and video streaming to remote device access. The course covers what it takes to offer a broadband and highly secure data network integrated with the Internet that can be used by the dealer/customer to support any present and future data network application. It teaches the practical design issues of the network architecture, equipment selection, maintaining network security, equipment configuration, and proper documentation. The course will also demonstrate actual network hookup and configuration using a network designed in the class.

Grayson Evans, owner of Training Dept. Seminars said, “The biggest request I got in my previous one day home network classes was to separate the material into a “basics” class and an “advanced” class to allow more time to cover the complex issues in more detail. These courses are the result of a year of redesigning and expanding the latest home network material to provide for both those relatively new to home network technology, and those who know the basics but want training in more complex issues such as network design for bandwidth optimization, security, media streaming, and expandability. “

Dates, times, and costs for the courses:
Home Network Fundamentals: Sept. 4th, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. , $395
Advanced Home Network System Design and Installation: Sept. 5th, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., $395 ($695 for both courses)
