CIPTV2 - Implementing Cisco IP Telephony and Video Part 2

CIPTV2 - Implementing Cisco IP Telephony and Video Part 2

Learn to implement a Cisco Collaboration Solution in a multisite environment.


This hands-on course prepares you for implementing a Cisco collaboration solution in a multisite environment.

Focusing on Cisco Unified Communications Manager v10.x, Cisco VCS-C, and Cisco Expressway series, you will implement voice and video in a multisite network. You will learn the concepts and configuration elements of globalized call routing, URI dialing and call routing, Global Dial Plan Replication (GDPR) based on Cisco Inter-cluster Lookup Service (ILS), Cisco Unified Survivable Remote Site Telephony (SRST), mobility features, and Call Admission Control (CAC).

In consideration of mobile users connected to the public Internet, as well as Cisco TelePresence devices, you will also learn the concepts and configuration elements of Cisco VCS and its integration with Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Mobile Remote Access (MRA) on Cisco Expressway Series.
