Course Content

This course covers the technology associated with video conferencing and an introduction to Cisco’s video solution for SIP, TIP and H.323 video communication (formerly called TelePresence). Products included in this training are C-series endpoints, VCS, Cisco Unified Communication Manager (CUCM), MCUs, Conductor, and TelePresence Management Suite (TMS). Participants will gain in-depth practical knowledge with exercises on installing, configuring, maintaining and basic troubleshooting of the equipment. Advanced topics in this course include complex video network environments with firewall traversal, clustering, zoning and subzoning. In addition, students will use functions of the VCS to control access and bandwidth and use transforms, call policy and FindMe. Students will use TMS and VCS to provision SIP video and Jabber Video users, and will use CUCM to provision SIP audio and video.
