Welcome to our Wireshark Packet Analysis Courses!

We have been using the Wireshark packet dissector and analyzer tool since it was originally released as Ethereal.  

This is perhaps one of the most important tools that anyone working in computer and data networking can learn to use.  

Why? Because when you look at the details of the packets, and learn to read them, you learn the protocol operation at the most detailed level.  Think of what a protocol is: it is a method and predefined process which enables information to be exchanged.  We find exposing these details and studying protocol behavior to be both fun, and fascinating.

Is your focus on Data Center, Wireless, or Voice?  

There are several Wireshark courses offered below, with a differing focus for each one.  Check out the different classes below.

These classes are offered as Instructor Led classes, either online or on site/in person.

 

Knowing the fundamentals of the Wireshark(r) application and how to diagnose/troubleshoot the network with a focus on the TCP/IP protocol suite is vital to anyone who is in the networking field today, whether it be Service Provider level or Enterprise level. This insightful and revealing course has been designed to focus on the layered model approach to analyze the world of IP Networking. The course is a combination of knowledge training, systems analysis, with hands-on exercises using the Wireshark™ application, backed by CellStream's experience in networking over the last 25 years, revealing the details and capabilities in a swift, comprehensive, and understandable way.  See course details here.

This insightful and revealing course has been designed to focus on the layered model approach to analyze the world of IP Networking with a focus on Data Center where Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP) and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and similar analysis must be performed. The course is a combination of knowledge training, systems analysis, with hands-on exercises using the Wireshark™ application, backed by CellStream's experience in networking over the last 25 years, revealing the details and capabilities in a swift, comprehensive, and understandable way.  See course details here.

Knowing the fundamentals of the Wireshark(r) application and how to diagnose/troubleshoot the wireless WiFi network(s) is vital to anyone who is in the networking field today. This insightful and revealing course has been designed to analyze the world of Wireless and IP Networking. The course is a combination of knowledge training with hands-on exercises using the Wireshark™ application.  See course details here.

Knowing the fundamentals of the Wireshark application and how to diagnose/troubleshoot the network with a focus on the Voice over the TCP/IP protocol suite is vital to anyone who is in the networking field today, whether it be Service Provider level or Enterprise level. This insightful and revealing course has been designed to focus on the layered model approach to analyze the world of Voice over IP Networking. This course focuses on SIP, RTP/RTCP protocols used in the data and control plane of voice.  The course is a combination of knowledge training, systems analysis, with hands-on exercises using the Wireshark™ application, backed by CellStream's experience in networking over the last 25 years, revealing the details and capabilities in a swift, comprehensive, and understandable way.  See course details here soon - the course is under development.

This course will introduce students to using Wireshark to analyze Wi-Fi network traffic with a focus on Wi-Fi network operations.  We will explain how Wireshark works when used with Wi-Fi networks, and quickly proceed to customizing Wireshark to make the tool and make you a great Wi-Fi packet explorer!  Wireshark is perhaps the defacto tool for exploring packets, analyzing network problems, and investigating security problems in the network.  This Wi-Fi Edition course focuses on the Wi-Fi operations, troubleshooting, and planning, revealing Wireshark's capabilities for Wi-Fi, and what things to look out for.  Having skills with Wireshark and Wi-Fi networks is vital to anyone who is in the networking field today, whether it be Service Provider level or Enterprise level. The course is a combination of knowledge training, systems analysis, with hands-on exercises using the Wireshark™ application, backed by CellStream's experience in networking over the last 25 years, revealing the details and capabilities in a swift, comprehensive, and understandable way.
