An online, interactive introductory tutorial helps industry professionals acquire the fundamentals of nine management features: IGMP snooping, rate limiting, virtual local area networks (VLANs), quality of service (QoS), simple network-management protocol (SNMP), port security, port mirroring, RapidRing redundancy, and trunking redundancy, according to Contemporary Controls. "These features collectively affect the performance of your network by getting the best utilization of your bandwidth," says Bennet Levine, R&D manager for Contemporary Controls. "For example, rate limiting will prevent communication problems from one network affecting another network and IGMP snooping will prevent multicast traffic from overwhelming certain devices." Levine adds that the network performance tutorial will illustrate how performance of a network can be improved through EICP, EISX, and EISB Ethernet managed-switches.
