Application Delivery Fundamentals

Course Overview

This course enables network professionals to prepare to sit the Industry recognized ADN certification F5 Networks – 101 Application Delivery Fundamentals. The course covers an overview of network fundamentals with a detailed review of protocols, traffic management concepts and a focused view of Layers 4-7 of the network.
Course participants will gain an understanding of the challenges which led to the development of the ADN concept. In the early days, applications were bound to a local server and accessed by users across Local Area Networks (LANs), but today, thanks to increased demands from consumers, applications must be readily available across multiple networks, locations, and accessible to a wide range of users. Application Delivery Networking (ADN) was introduced to overcome these challenges.
