Total TRILL for engineers

A 1 day training course
**Due to the current COVID-19 isolation rules all our courses are being delivered via virtual instructor led learning until further notice**

TRILL training course description

A comprehensive look at Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL). This TRILL course starts with the problems in traditional switched networks then moves onto to how TRILL solves these problems. As IS-IS is key to loop free topologies in TRILL networks, this protocol is also studied.

Key outcomes from this course

By the end of the course delegates will be able to:
  • Explain the benefits of TRILL.
  • Explain how TRILL works.
  • Explain the role of IS-IS in TRILL.
  • Integrate TRILL into existing networks.

TRILL training course details

Who will benefit:
Technical staff working with Ethernet.
Definitive Ethernet switching for engineers.
1 day

Training approach

This structured training course seeks to build upon workbook learning through the use of group exercises, dynamic discussion and individual tasks in order to deliver an engaging and interactive module that will ensure all candidates are able to transfer their new skills into the workplace.

Why Choose Us

SNT trainers score an average of over 90% on the three main areas of:
  • Ability to teach
  • Technical knowledge
  • Answering questions
“Excellently presented by a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic trainer.” P.D. General Dynamics

We limit our maximum class size to 8 delegates; often we have less than this. This ensures optimal interactivity between delegates and instructor.
"Excellent course. The small class size was a great benefit…" M.B. IBM

We write our own courses; courseware does not just consist of slides and our slides are diagrams not bullet point text. A typical chapter provides clearly defined objectives with a chapter overview, slides with text underneath, a quiz at the end to check the learning of the students. Hands on exercises are at the end and are used to reinforce the theory.
