New On-Line Course in Network Management Available from the IEC

Apr 20, 2001, 01:00 ET from International Engineering Consortium

    CHICAGO, April 20 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- The
 International Engineering Consortium (IEC) is proud to offer its latest on-
 line course, Network Management, from its industry-leading Communications
 Technologies Program (CTP).
     Managing the converging voice/data network is a tremendous challenge for
 service providers.  As optical networks and enhanced voice services are
 deployed, management systems must keep pace with such innovations in order to
 guarantee quality of service and network reliability.
     How do next-generation service providers meet this challenge?  What tools,
 technologies, and strategies can communications providers and enterprise
 network managers use to manage multi-vendor, multi-service, multi-platform
 networks?
     This eight-hour, self-paced course is intended for professionals who must
 monitor and manage increasingly sophisticated carrier or enterprise networks.
 Learn about the following topics and more:
 
     -- Network management basics
     -- Broadband network management
     -- ATM management
     -- Telecommunications management network (TMN)
     -- Enterprise vs. telecom network management
     -- Maintaining QoS
     -- DSL network management
     -- SNMPv1 through v3
 
     Network Management is taught by, Dr. Mani Subramanian, Research Professor
 at Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Subramanian has more than 30 years of
 telecommunications experience in academic, research, and corporate
 institutions, such as AT&T, Purdue University, and Digital Communications
 Associates.
     CTP courses enable students to complete lessons at their own pace -- at
 home, at work, or while traveling.  Dynamic audio and video streams -- coupled
 with extensive graphic illustrations and diagrams, a discussion forum, a
 comprehensive glossary, an array of supplemental readings, and other
 interactive features -- make this on-line course an efficient, flexible, and
 cost-effective way to master the critical topics surrounding optical
 networking.
