The Implementing Cisco TelePresence Video Solutions (VTVS1/2) Course has been replaced with the NEW – Cisco Video Infrastructure Implementation (VII)

Implementing Cisco TelePresence Video Solutions (VTVS1/2) is a five-day instructor-led course. You will learn features, functions, design, and deployment planning for Cisco endpoint product sets including SX Series, C-Series, and EX Series systems. Students will gain the necessary knowledge to implement, support, and troubleshoot Cisco TelePresence video solutions. 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. This course includes 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. Students will use TCS to record telepresence sessions. Additionally, you will learn to add Cisco TelePresence to existing Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CM) environments.

The software applications that are covered in this course include:

  • Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server (VCS)
  • Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM)
  • Cisco Unified Communications Manager IM and Presence
  • Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Controller Unit (MCU)
  • Cisco Telepresence Management Suite (TMS)
  • Cisco Telepresence Content Server (TCS)
