Connecting to clusters and the PSTN are key elements of a Cisco Unified Collaboration deployment. This course teaches you how to configure H.323 and MGCP gateways, SIP trunks, and CUBEs to work with Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
In today's fast-paced world, the ability to communicate using real-time IP voice and video technology is a business necessity. Cisco is doing its part in leading this technological revolution. In this course, Building PSTN Gateways, SIP Trunks, and CUBEs for Cisco Collaboration (300-070) CIPTV1, you will be preparing to pass the Implementing Cisco IP Telephony and Video Part 1 exam. First, you will learn how to configure MGCP and H.323 gateways to communicate with Cisco Unified Communications Manager to provide access to the PSTN. Next, you will see how read and troubleshoot SIP messages, configure SIP trunks, and utilize the Intercluster Lookup Service (ILS) to support dynamic call routing between clusters. Finally, you will explore how to configure a Cisco Session Border Controller (CUBE), a crucial component used in the latest collaboration solutions. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge needed to configure the Cisco Unified Communications Manager to work with MGCP, H.323, and SIP.

Course Overview Hi everyone! I'm Sean Douglas, and welcome to my course, Building Gateways, SIP Trunks, and CUBEs for Cisco Collaboration CIPTV1 for the Cisco CCNP 300-070 exam. I've worked with Cisco technology for almost two decades, and I've helped hundreds of administrators and organizations create Cisco Unified Collaboration solutions. Throughout this course, which is part of a series that we're creating, we're going to help prepare you for the Implementing Cisco IP Telephony and Video, Part 1 exam. Not only will this course help prepare you for the CIPTV1 exam, it's going to provide you with real-world solutions. We're going to save you a lot of time. We're going to use extensive demonstrations to show you the step-by-step process of configuring traditional telephony gateways to work with Cisco Unified Communications Manager using H. 323 and MGCP. We're going to show you how to create SIP trunks to route calls between clusters, as well as how to implement the Intercluster Lookup Service. Finally, we're going to show you how to build a CUBE, which is a Cisco session border controller. Traditional telephony is being replaced by SIP trunks, and if you're going to have a SIP trunk, you're certainly going to want to have a CUBE. By the end of this course, you'll be well on your way to preparing for the Implementing Cisco IP Telephony and Video, Part 1 exam, and you'll be able to reference our step-by-step demonstrations in your day-to-day career. Before beginning this course, you should have a basic understanding of Cisco Unified Communications Manager either by having watched the previous courses in our series, Basic Call Operation and Components and Dial Plan for Cisco Unified Communications Manager, by being at about the CCNA Collaboration level, or have some experience working with Cisco Unified Communications Manager. I hope you'll join me as we learn about Cisco Collaboration with the Building Gateways, SIP trunks, and CUBEs for Cisco Collaboration CIPTV1 course at Pluralsight.
