IP Foundation for Broadcast Engineers (CCIPFM)

( Duration: 5 Days )

The IP Foundation for Broadcast Engineers (CCIPFM) training course introduces you to Internet Protocol (IP) networking and the Cisco IP Fabric for Media (IPFM) solution. You will learn to migrate from Serial Digital Interface (SDI)-based deployments to an IP-based infrastructure, as well as the basic principles of IP technologies including: Ethernet functions and standards, Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) stack, and Cisco IPFM deployment. Through a combination of lessons and hands-on labs, you will explore the Cisco Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) Media Controller, including deploying and troubleshooting the DCNM Media Controller to manage and automate flows through the fabric and configure basic IP functionality.

By attending IP Foundation for Broadcast Engineers (CCIPFM) workshop, delegates will learn to:

  • Identify the components of a computer network and describe their basic characteristics
  • Describe network fundamentals and explain a simple LAN
  • Describe hardware and wiring that is used to build a network
  • Describe the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) reference model
  • Explain data link layer characteristics, Ethernet protocol, and switch operation
  • Introduce students to key network layer components, definitions, and standards
  • Explain the purpose and functions of the transport layer
  • Describe end-to-end packet delivery
  • Describe basic routing functionalities
  • Describe multicast networks, applications, and protocols
  • Explain data center architecture in each layer, and describe new leaf-spine topology approaches
  • Explain virtualization and Software-Defined Networking (SDN)
  • Describe the overall solution and how it works, and identify all components of the solution and their functions
  • Understand initial sizing and capacity
  • Explain the basic requirements for IPFM
  • Describe how Non-Blocking Multicast (NBM) and multicast function in the IPFM
  • Demonstrate and verify Precision Time Protocol (PTP) clocking
  • Describe the DCNM Media Controller
  • Demonstrate the DCNM Media Controller configuration and verification
  • Explain how to deploy an IPFM solution in a high-availability manner
  • Use the DCNM Media Controller to monitor fabric and to troubleshoot basic connectivity and performance issues
  • Understand the approach and basic steps involved in responding to alarms and other notifications

  • Basic computer literacy including operation system navigation skills, internet usage skills, IP address knowledge, and understanding of networking protocols
  • Knowledge of broadcast industry requirements and standardization
  • Familiarity with data center network architectures
  • Understanding of TCP/IP networks
  • Ability to configure basic unicast and multicast routing
  • Familiarity with Cisco Nexus Command Line Interface (CLI)
  • Use of basic Linux commands
