Course Introduction

Intel® Network Academy - Network Transformation 101 In this course you will learn about the fundamental concepts of network evolution and the implications of computing at the nanoscale. We will cover topics like packet encapsulation, efficient network communication protocols, and how networks are secured. In addition, you will learn about state-of-the-art techniques for virtualization, and how to apply these technologies for real world applications. You will then dive deeply into specialized topics in networking including packet encapsulation, state-of-the-art packet encryption methods, and advanced packet verification methods. At the end of this course you will be able to: • Understand the state-of-the-art in networking and algorithm design at the nanoscale • Understand the major concepts in networking including packet encapsulation, packet encryption, and state-of-the-art packet verification methods • Apply state-of-the-art techniques for virtualization, packet encapsulation, and state-of-the-art packet verification methodsNetwork Evolution Fundamentals Network Security Methods Network Encapsulation State-of-the-art Methods Oracle Database Management Suite The Oracle Database Management Suite (HDMS) brings together the cutting-edge technologies that you have come to expect from Oracle. In this course, we will take a more technical approach to the programming and data manipulation that makes the HDMS unique among

IP Network Transformation In wider sense Network Transformation consists of modernizing telecommunication network by offloading (migrating) customers from TDM/ATM based legacy systems to IP based systems. This, many a times, involves migration from copper to optical fiber.
IP Network Transformation Typical characteristic of Network Transformation is that it is usually initiated by the service provider rather than specifically requested by the subscriber (in essence the "network" is transparent to the user).
IP Network Transformation The evolution from legacy technologies to an End to End, Converged, IP based Network is the basis for IP Network Transformation. Convergence implies one network for all traffic. End to End implies IP everywhere, from Core to Access in the telecom operator space.
IP Network Transformation IP Network Transformation is the process of migrating TDM and ATM networks to a single, service-delivery oriented, end-to-end All-IP infrastructure.
Network Computer The IBM Network Station was originally based on the PowerPC architecture, but the final few models used Intel Pentium processors.
Telecom Transformation The Network Transformation sub-process refers to the activities adding new elements in the Core Network, Backbone network and Access network. The typical activities include the following:
Economics Network The Economics Network is one of the subject networks originally established by the Higher Education Academy (HEA). On its founding it was known as the "Learning and Teaching Support Network (LTSN) for Economics" later becoming independent of the HEA.
IP Network Transformation Typical drivers for Network Transformation are lack of spares, lack of technical expertise in maintaining and operating the legacy networks leading to higher OPEX costs and degraded customer experience. On the other hand, migrating to IP based networks offers significant advantages such as Managed services, support, QoS, advanced features, reduced OPEX, to name a few.
National Network Management Centre The transformation of BT's network to becoming digital began in 1985, and finished in July 1990. BT's Worldwide Network Management Centre at Oswestry opened on 5 September 1990, at a cost of £4m.
KIIS Network The KIIS Network is a network of radio stations owned and operated by the Australian Radio Network. Formerly branded as the Mix Network, the network was rebranded as the KIIS Network in 2015 following the relaunch of KIIS 101.1 Melbourne.
Audience (TV network) The network launched on November 25, 1999 as Freeview, a service on DirecTV channel 103 carrying a continuous loop of concerts and other events. Freeview was part of all of the satellite provider's subscription packages, starting with the Total Choice tier. In 2005, it was moved to channel 101 and was rebranded as the The 101 Network (as a suffix, "101" is college jargon for basic classes or, in more general terms, a way to describe any basic concept). Following the rebrand, the channel's schedule began to expand to include original programs. The channel was rebranded as Audience Network on June 1, 2011. It dropped Network from its name in 2016.
Network traffic Network traffic or data traffic is the amount of data moving across a network at a given point of time. Network data in computer networks is mostly encapsulated in network packets, which provide the load in the network. Network traffic is the main component for network traffic measurement, network traffic control and simulation.
Network address A network address is an identifier for a node or network interface of a telecommunications network.
Wireless network A wireless network is a computer network that uses wireless data connections between network nodes.
Hit Network The network was previously known as Today's Austereo Network and the Today Network.
Host (network) A network host is a computer or other device connected to a computer network. A network host may offer information resources, services, and applications to users or other nodes on the network. A network host is a network node that is assigned a network layer host address.
Network management Network management is the process of administering and managing the computer networks of one or many organisations. Various services provided by network managers include fault analysis, performance management, provisioning of network and network devices, maintaining the quality of service, and so on. Software that enables network administrators or network managers to perform their functions is called network management software.
Access network An access network is a type of telecommunications network which connects subscribers to their immediate service provider. It is contrasted with the "core network", (for example the Network Switching Subsystem in GSM) which connects local providers to each other. The access network may be further divided between feeder plant or distribution network, and drop plant or edge network.
Network formation Network formation is an aspect of network science that seeks to model how a network evolves by identifying which factors affect its structure and how these mechanisms operate. Network formation hypotheses are tested by using either a dynamic model with an increasing network size or by making an agent-based model to determine which network structure is the equilibrium in a fixed-size network.
Abilene Network Abilene Network was a high-performance backbone network created by the Internet2 community in the late 1990s. In 2007 the Abilene Network was retired and the upgraded network became known as the "Internet2 Network".
