F5 Administering BIG-IP Course Overview

F5 Administering BIG-IP Course Overview

The F5 Administering BIG-IP course is designed to provide learners with the foundational knowledge and skills required to manage and configure the F5 BIG-IP system. Starting with Module 1: Setting Up the BIG-IP System, students will learn to introduce, deploy, and license the BIG-IP system, as well as configure its essential network components. Throughout the course, they will gain hands-on experience with traffic processing, NATs and SNATs, monitoring application health, profiles, and persistence to ensure optimized traffic management and load balancing.

As they progress, learners will also dive into administering the system with advanced features such as logging, remote logging, and high-speed logging (HSL), which are crucial for maintaining network security and performance. The course emphasizes the importance of high availability configurations using Device Service Clustering (DSC) to ensure system resilience and uptime.

By the end of the course, participants will be equipped with the practical expertise to administer a BIG-IP environment effectively, positioning them as valuable assets in maintaining and securing network infrastructures.

Course Prerequisites

Certainly! Here are the minimum required prerequisites for successfully undertaking the F5 Administering BIG-IP course:

  • Basic understanding of networking concepts, including the OSI model, routing, and switching.
  • Knowledge of common network protocols (such as TCP/IP) and their operation.
  • Familiarity with basic concepts of application delivery (such as client-server communication, web applications).
  • General understanding of network security concepts (such as firewalls, network access control).
  • Basic operational command line interface (CLI) experience, including SSH access to network devices.
  • Ability to read and understand IP addressing and subnetting.
  • Some experience with network troubleshooting tools (ping, traceroute, etc.).
  • Fundamental administrative knowledge of computer systems and operating systems, especially Linux or Unix-like systems.

These prerequisites are designed to ensure that students have an adequate foundation upon which to build their understanding of the BIG-IP system through the course material. Without these foundational skills, it may be challenging to grasp the more advanced concepts presented in the training. However, motivated students with a willingness to learn and a commitment to expanding their IT knowledge can successfully complete the course with these prerequisites as a starting point.
