Course Description

This 4-day instructor-led training course shows learners how to use Wireshark 2.0 to view, capture, analyze, and troubleshoot network traffic. Emphasis is placed on a hands-on lab-based approach where learners use Wireshark on a live network. The course is vendor-agnostic and is not specific to any single model or brand of networking gear like Cisco, Juniper, Intel, or HP. The course covers protocol analysis and troubleshooting across all vendors and types of network infrastructure.
