Cisco TelePresence Installation and Configuration Training

Categories: Cisco, Guaranteed To Run™

Duration: 5 Days

The Cisco TelePresence Installation and Configuration Training version 1.0 instructor-led course offered by High-Touch Delivery Learning Services will provide participants with the skills and knowledge needed to install and configure the main infrastructure components of a Cisco TelePresence® network. Infrastructure devices covered in this course include:

  • Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server (VCS)
  • Cisco TelePresence Management Suite (TMS)
  • Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Control Unit (MCU)
  • Cisco TelePresence Server
  • Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Switch (CTMS)
  • Cisco TelePresence MSE8000 and associated blades
  • Cisco TelePresence Manager
  • Cisco TelePresence Conductor

In addition, this course covers provisioning of Cisco TelePresence System endpoints and Cisco® Unified IP Phones from Cisco UCM and configuring Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunks to link Cisco UCM to Cisco VCS.

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Install Cisco TelePresence appliance hardware, including Cisco VCS, Cisco TelePresence Conductor, Cisco MCUs, Cisco Gateways, and the Cisco TelePresence MSE 8000 chassis and assign IP addressing information
  • Install Cisco TelePresence Management Suite (TMS) on a preconfigured Microsoft Windows Server, and configure basic settings
  • Describe hardware requirements for Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Switch
  • Describe how the Cisco Unified CM and Cisco VCS interact; describe which endpoints interoperate and how the Cisco TelePresence Server can be used to facilitate any endpoint working with any other endpoint
  • Configure the basic settings needed on a Cisco VCS; interpret the messages sent by H.323 and SIP endpoints during a registration, a call, and a deregistration
  • Describe video and audio standards used in Cisco TelePresence; describe call routes using the Cisco VCS and Cisco Unified CM devices; provision Cisco TelePresence System endpoints and Cisco Unified IP Video Phones using Cisco Unified CM, Cisco TMS, and Cisco VCS
  • Create Search Rules and Transforms, a DNS Zone, and Subzones on the Cisco VCS for a given scenario; configure a Firewall Traversal connection and describe its effects on devices
  • Configure a Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Switch, a Cisco TelePresence MCU, a Cisco TelePresence Server, Cisco TMS, Cisco TelePresence Conductor, and a Cisco ISDN Gateway
  • Describe clustering capabilities of Cisco VCS, Cisco TMS, Cisco TelePresence Conductor, Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Switch, Cisco TelePresence Manager, Cisco TelePresence MCU, and Cisco TelePresence Server
  • Describe the roles of a LAN and of QoS on a telepresence network
  • Describe basic security features on Cisco TelePresence endpoints and infrastructure devices and the encryption capabilities of SIP and H.323 registrations and calls
  • Use the Cisco VCS to prevent both calls and registrations of certain endpoints and describe the effects of authentication on Cisco TMS provisioning

Following are the prerequisites for this course:

  • Cisco TelePresence Support and Operations Training (TSOT) or equivalent knowledge and experience
  • Networking knowledge including IPv4 addressing, OSI 7-layer model, uses of switches and routers, DHCP, cabling, and DNS

This course is designed for engineers responsible for installing and configuring a TelePresence network. The primary audience for this course includes:

  • Customer support providers who provide second- and third-level support rather than first-level helpdesk support
  • Partner technical professionals
