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.

Says our CEO-
“It is an interesting story and dates back half a century. My father started a manufacturing business in India in the 1960's for import substitute electromechanical components such as microswitches. German and Japanese goods were held in high esteem so he named his company Essen Deinki (Essen is a well known industrial town in Germany and Deinki is Japanese for electric company). His products were very good quality and the fact that they sounded German and Japanese also helped. He did quite well. In 1970s he branched out into electronic products and again looked for a German name. This time he chose Koenig, and Koenig Electronics was born. In 1990s after graduating from college I was looking for a name for my company and Koenig Solutions sounded just right. Initially we had marketed under the brand of Digital Equipment Corporation but DEC went out of business and we switched to the Koenig name. Koenig is difficult to pronounce and marketeers said it is not a good choice for a B2C brand. But it has proven lucky for us.” – Says Rohit Aggarwal (Founder and CEO - Koenig Solutions)
