+++Networking Technologies and Performance Test Methodologies+++

Summary

Recommend these presentations to your staff if they have little or no knowledge of Networking Technologies and Performance Test Methodologies. These were created by Spirent Education Services back in early 2000 and used for lectures during instructor-led courses. At the time these concepts were not necessarily covered in school and access to information like this was not as easy to find on the Internet as it is today. Remember the Internet back in 2000? However, today access to information such as this is plentiful on the Internet. Nevertheless, we are making these available to Spirent customers now as a value added component of your investment in our solutions. I think you will find that while the content is a bit out of date there is a beauty in its simplicity. Sometimes a summary is much better than a thousand words. It also helps to know where ideas and implementations came from to gain a better understanding of how they operate today. Enjoy!
