Configuring BIG-IP 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 BIG-IP LTM systems as part of a flexible and high performance application delivery network.

Målgrupp

This course is intended for system and network administrators responsible for installation, setup, configuration, and administration of the BIG-IP LTM system.
