Administering BIG-IP – V11
This two-day course gives network administrators, network operators, and network engineers a functional understanding of the BIG-IP® v11 system as it is commonly deployed in an application delivery network. The course introduces students to the BIG-IP system, its configuration objects, how it processes traffic, and how typical administrative and operational activities are performed. The course includes lecture, hands-on labs, interactive demonstrations, and discussions.

Course Description

Topics covered in this course include:
•Getting Started with the BIG-IP System
•Traffic Processing with LTM
