IP-TV and OTT-TV Technical Overview Duration: 2 days

IP-TV and OTT-TV Technical Overview
CONTENT
This course will go through the fundamental concepts and design principles of IPTV networks, as well as describing the protocols involved. We will also cover IPTV deployment challenges and the future of IPTV. The course consists of theory and practical exercises.

TARGET AUDIENCE
This course is aimed towards engineers and designers who need to understand the technology involved within IPTV.

PREREQUISITES
This course requires knowledge equivalent to our course TCP/IP and Data Communication Fundamentals. This means understanding of general IP communication, networking and knowledge about IP-multimedia.

NOTE: This course is not delivered with the FoldOut methodology.
