Administering BIG-IP and Configuring BIG-IP LTM v.14.1: Local Traffic Manager Bundle (BIGIPAD-LTM-BDLE)

 

Course Overview

Attend both the F5 Administering BIG-IP and Configuring BIG-IP LTM v14.1: Local Traffic Manager courses in the same week and save!
Administering BIG-IP v14.1

This course gives network administrators, network operators, and network engineers a functional understanding of the BIG-IP 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.

Configuring BIG-IP LTM v14.1: Local Traffic Manager

This course gives network professionals a functional understanding of BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager, introducing students to both commonly used and advanced BIG-IP LTM features and functionality. Incorporating lecture, extensive hands-on labs, and classroom discussion, the course helps students build the well-rounded skill set needed to manage BIGIP LTM systems as part of a flexible and high- performance application delivery network.

Who should attend

This course is intended for system and network administrators, operators, and engineers responsible for managing the normal day-to-day operation and administration of a BIG-IP application delivery network, and installation, setup, configuration, and administration of the BIG-IP LTM system.

Prerequisites

The following free web-based training courses, although optional, will be very helpful for any student with limited BIG-IP administration and configuration experience.

These courses are available at F5 University (http://university.f5.com):

  • Getting Started with BIG-IP
  • Getting Started with BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) web-based training
