Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Training:

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Training Course with hands-on Exercises (Online, Onsite, and Classroom Live)

SNMP is a widely used protocol that facilitates the management of networked devices from a central location.  Originally intended only for the management of network devices such as routers and switches, its usage has grown rapidly to encompass the monitoring of nearly any electronic device one can think of.  SNMP is now used to monitor and manage television broadcast studios, automated fare collection systems, airborne military platforms, energy distribution systems, emergency radio networks, and much more.

The first of our series of three courses on SNMP is followed by a course that deals with the security and other enhancements embodied in SNMPv3, the latest version of this protocol.  Our final course on SNMP is aimed at the software developers responsible for programming SNMP agents for deployed devices.

This Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Training course is designed to fast-track individuals and organizations wishing to become SNMP-competent.  It employs highly interactive lectures combined with hands-on exercises to help you effectively acquire the necessary knowledge and skills and apply them to real-life situations.

  • We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the SNMP Training course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
  • If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) course in a manner understandable to lay audiences.
Target Audience
  • IT professionals, engineers, tech and customer support representatives, marketing and sales personnel, and others responsible for SNMP deployment and management, MIB and agent development, and SNMP sales and support.
  • While there are no specific prerequisites for this Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) course, good general knowledge of computer networking will be very helpful.
