Networking Technologies Fundamentals

10:04:00 How Networks Really Work

This webinar will help you understand how networking technologies really work and why they were designed that way.

Mathematical Foundations of Networking

We usually design networks based on our intuition, past experience, or vendor-provided best practices. Other disciplines like Electrical Engineering are more rigorous and apply math tools to their problems. These webinars will help you understand the math basics of network topologies, reliable designs, and queuing.

2:07:00 Network Connectivity, Graph Theory, and Reliable Network Design

This webinar will give you basic familiarity with graph theory, an understanding of what connectivity in networks means mathematically, and a new perspective on network design.

2:15:00 Reliability Theory: Networking through a Systems Analysis Lens

This webinar will give you basic familiarity with reliability theory, an understanding of what reliability of a network means mathematically, and a new perspective of systems reliability.

1:15:00 Queuing Theory

This webinar will give you basic familiarity with the queuing terminology and mathematical principles underlying the various queuing models.

Soft Skills

Being a good networking engineer is more than just having the prerequisite knowledge and understanding the networking technologies. You should also be able to figure out the best way to solve actual business needs (as opposed to implementing requirements that come down the stack) and pass your knowledge to less experienced colleagues.

2:00:00 Business Aspects of Networking Technologies

This webinar will put you in the right mindset when evaluating new technologies or designing new networks or services, and help you refocus on what really matters: the business needs of your organization.

42:00 Developing engineers through the mentoring process

This webinar approaches mentoring through the perspective of a typical engineer looking for understanding, tools and processes one can use to get good results instead of typical disappointments resulting from reading too many motivational blog posts.
