MAKING STRATEGIC NETWORKING DECISIONS- A THREE-DAY TRAINING EVENT

18-20 JULY 2005, THE FORUM, BRYANSTON, SOUTH AFRICA 

Today's telecommunications networks can transport voice, data and image traffic to any location in the world. Traditionally, organisations used many separate networks for the various types of information they needed to exchange. There is now a move towards convergence of several types of traffic into fewer networks. 

Attending the course “Understanding data and multi-services networking” on 18 to 20 July 2005 at The Forum, Bryanston is the best way to fill in the gaps and to quickly inform yourself about data networking, IP, the Internet, ATM and network convergence technology. It has been designed to give you an understanding of data communication principles, practices and terminology and how they are employed within modern communication networks.

The course starts with fundamentals, progresses in a logical order through popular technologies and finishes with a structured overview of mainstream solutions… and how it all fits together.
