Course Introduction

The Datacom testing course has been designed to focus to meet the demand of Datacom testing professionals in l2/l3 switching technologies.

Manual testing of network protocols working in Layer2 / Layer3 like RIP,OSPF,BGP,STP,RSTP,.1Q etc, Automation of test cases using TCL and Expect, Testing tools training, Testing Lifecycle, Test plan development, Testing Strategies, Types of testing and Bugfiling are the major topics covered in the training.This course is designed to equip the candidate with the testing skills and networking concepts with the hands on experience on real-time Telecom Protocol testing on L2/L3 technologies

Data Communication is the process of transferring information from a sender to a receiver with the use of a medium in which the communicated information is understood by both sender and receiver. It is a process that allows organisms to exchange information by several methods.
