Course Content

CIPTV2 v1.0 is a comprehensive course that provides you the essential skills and knowledge to implement Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM), Cisco VCS-C and Cisco Expressway series in multisite voice and video networks. You learn call routing options, global dial plan replication based on the ILS, Cisco Unified SRST, mobility features, call admission control, integration of Cisco VCS and CUCM, and Cisco Mobile Remote Access on Cisco Expressway Series .

Multiple hands-on labs allow you to practice successfully implementing dial plans for multisite deployments – both domestic and international, plus the implementation of bandwidth management, device mobility, extension mobility and Cisco Unified Mobility. Other lab work covers the implementation of Dial Plans in Cisco VCS Control to Interconnect with CUCM and implementation of mobile and remote access via Cisco Expressway.
