  • Operate a Cisco TelePresence Server to enable mixed network calls between the Cisco TelePresence Server and other Cisco TelePresence endpoints
  • Configure and operate a Cisco TelePresence Content Server
  • Configure a Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server for sub-zones, zones, complex dial plans, and security requirements
  • Use the Cisco TelePresence Management Suite and Cisco TelePresence Communication Server to provision Movi and E20 systems

Who Should Attend

  • Installation and support engineers who install, maintain, and troubleshoot Cisco TelePresence solutions
  • Sales engineers who are planning Cisco TelePresence solutions
