About this Course

This course is a new 5-day ILT class designed to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills to implement various Cisco Video endpoints in converged Cisco video infrastructures. Cisco business video solutions has four major Cisco Medianet application components: - Unified Communication and Collaboration - TelePresence - Digital Media Suite (DMS) - Video Surveillance. Part 1 is designed to provide students with the necessary knowledge to describe characteristics of video solutions and assess the requirements for a successful implementation of a video solution. And describes the characteristics of a video solution and enables students to evaluate the general requirements for video deployments such as coding options, media formats, protocols, network impact, high-level architectural components and their interactions, and requisites to the environment. Part 2 describes Cisco business video solutions and enables students to implement and troubleshoot Cisco Unified Communication and Collaboration, TelePresence and Digital Media Player in different Cisco business video solution architectures.
