IP network infrastructure testing and verification

The course provides expert-level knowledge, skills and practical experience in IP network infrastructure testing, measurements and verification procedures. Theoretical knowledge on test and measurement principles and verification standards and procedures is enhanced with hands-on lab practices focused on performance tests of routers and switches using professional measurement equipment.


  • Introduction into testing and measurement
  • Standardization and test methodologies
  • Preparation of test scenarios
  • Performance tests: L2 - L3 (throughput, delay, jitter, packet loss)
  • Performance tests: L4 - L7 (client/server emulation for DHCP, IGMP, HTTP etc.)
  • IP network infrastructure conformance testing
  • IP network infrastructure functional testing
  • IP network infrastructure interoperability testing
  • Use of open source measurement and test tools
  • Use of professional measurement and test tools
  • Use of integrated networking solutions (Cisco IP SLA)
  • Conformance tests result analysis
  • Performance tests result analysis
