RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. — Samsung is offering a series of two-day training courses covering IP video, network design and integration skills throughout the United States and Canada in 2012.
Led by the firm's Dr. Edward Wassall, director of IP product and business development, the Samsung IP Institute (SIPI) will leverage the company's technical expertise to address the increasing need for higher-level knowledge among IP video systems integrators.
SIPI will provide technical salespeople, security rep firms and integrators with skills including basic IP network design and implementation, video management and IP camera image optimization. Attendees will be trained in IP video integration and learn the skills and design tools that will help them become more knowledgeable integrators, according to the company.
"IP video networks are becoming the norm in video surveillance, so it is more important than ever to provide basic and mid-level technical network design expertise to the channel," says Frank De Fina, Samsung senior vice president of sales and marketing. "Educating the channel to fulfill customer needs in the changing IP video market is one of the ways we are maintaining the value and quality of the Samsung brand."
The two-day courses cover a range of topics. Day 1 areas of study include IP video design methodologies, Ethernet 101, the open systems interconnect model, introduction to Internet protocol, TCP/IP packet structures, IP addressing basics, IP sub-netting, and introductions to virtual LANS and network switching. Day 2 covers a video network design case study, assigning IP addresses to a laptop, IP camera technology basics, assigning an IP address to a camera, and video LAN connectivity. Day 2 will also cover video image optimization; frame rates, resolution and compression; video management software installation; video network optimization; and a design technology review.
