Analyser Workshop

Network analysis and trouble shooting are one of the most advanced tasks a network engineer or developer can be faced with. Only a clearly defined test target and proper isolation of the function to test promises a solid conclusion.

The analysis workshop shows the big pictures of network testing, introduces to various testing tools and analysers and makes several practical excercises available to your fingertips.
