Course Objectives

  • Define what IIoT is and identify IIoT architectures.
  • Identify IIoT market verticals, and their motivations and requirements.
  • Explore Cisco IIoT networking devices, how they are different from other devices, and use common administrative tools for managing them.
  • Explore industrial communications protocols for control and automation, and how they have been adapted to run on top of a TCP/IP network infrastructure.
  • Describe wireless protocols used in IIoT environments, including architectures and devices used.
  • Understand the TCP/IP protocol stack and how it is used with other protocols in IIoT environments.
  • Discuss network protocols for clock synchronization between network devices, and describe available tools for IIoT network administration.
  • Discuss wireless technologies used in a core LAN, and their relevance to IIoT implementations.
  • Explore field WAN technologies and how they are used in IIoT environments.
  • Explore legacy protocols and explain the methods available to transport non-routable protocols over modern networks.
  • Explain fundamental concepts of Quality of Service (QoS) related to IIoT network environments.
  • Discuss Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) operation, components, terminology, and features, and explore its use in IIoT environments.
  • Explore Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPN technologies and describe the way they can be used on IIoT deployments.
  • Describe Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology and its use in IIoT environments.
  • Explore Layer 1 and Layer 2 high availability technologies and redundancy mechanisms.
  • Describe Layer 3 high availability and the need for Layer 3 redundancy in IIoT deployments.
