The IP Foundation for Broadcast Engineers (CCIPFM) v1.0 course introduces you to IP networking and the Cisco® IP Fabric for Media (IPFM) solution. The course is designed for broadcast engineers who will use IP technologies to replace Serial Device Interface (SDI)-based deployments. No prior IP networking knowledge is required. You will learn the basic principles of IP technologies, including Ethernet functions and standards, IP, the TCP/IP stack, and other technologies used in modern networks. You will also learn about Cisco IPFM deployment, operation, and troubleshooting.
The course also covers the Cisco Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) Media Controller, a core component of the Cisco IPFM solution. Lab exercises focus on how to configure basic IP functionality on switches and servers, how to build IP fabric as a baseline for a complete IPFM solution, and how to deploy and troubleshoot the DCNM Media Controller to control flows through the fabric.
