Understanding Cisco Industrial IoT Networking Foundation (INFND)

Course Description

Understanding Cisco Industrial IoT Networking Foundation (INFND)

The Understanding Cisco Industrial IoT Networking Foundation (INFND) v1.0 course gives you an overview of the protocols, applications, and network infrastructure you need to support and manage Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions.

In Understanding Cisco Industrial IoT Networking Foundation (INFND), you will learn about IIoT industry verticals and how different protocols are used within them. The course also covers configuring and verifying the protocols on Cisco® IIoT networking devices.

Learning 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
