IP Networking Fundamentals and Advanced Practice - Application to Broadcast Systems


IP networks are an integral component of the broadcast technical plant today. Integration with the legacy broadcast infrastructure can range from minimal system control functions to an end-to-end IP based content transport infrastructure. Regardless of the integration level or complexity, knowledge of IP networking is essential for the broadcast engineer and cybersecurity must be a top-of-mind concern. This tutorial presentation will seek to provide an understanding of IP network fundamentals, an awareness of advanced features, and practical steps to implement network security best practices in the design and support of a broadcast IP network.
