Supporting media resources is a key component to a Unified Collaboration deployment. This course will teach you how to configure media resources and conferencing using Unified Communications Manager, IOS, TelePresence, and TelePresence Conductor.
In today’s fast-paced world, the ability to communicate using real-time IP voice and video technology is a business necessity. In this course, Building Conferences with Telepresence and Managing Media Resources for Cisco Collaboration (300-070) CIPTV1, you will prepare to pass the Implementing Cisco IP Telephony and Video Part 1 exam. First, you will learn how to configure media resources, including music on hold, media termination points, as well as audio and video conferencing on Cisco Unified Communications Manager and the Cisco IOS router. Next, you will see how Cisco uses its TelePresence family of servers to provide businesses with voice and video collaboration solutions. Finally, you will explore how to configure and support video conferences with Cisco TelePresence Conductor and Cisco TelePresence Server, using telephony endpoints registered to Cisco Unified Communications Manager. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge needed to configure the media resources used by Cisco Unified Communications Manager and the IOS router, as well create video conferencing using Cisco TelePresence Conductor with TelePresence Server.

Course Overview Hi everyone! My name is Sean Douglas, and welcome to my course, Building Conferences with Telepresence and Managing Media Resources for Cisco Collaboration CIPTV1 for the Cisco CCNP 300-070 exam. I've worked with Cisco technology for almost two decades, and I've taught thousands of adults and worked with hundreds of organizations to 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, we're 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 media resources on Cisco Unified Communication Manager and the iOS router. We're going to show you how to create media termination points for your SIP trunks, transcoders to translate various codecs, and how to configure music on hold using one-to-one unicast and one-to-many multicast. Finally, we're going to get to know the Cisco Telepresence server family and show you how to build video conferences using Cisco Telepresence conductor and Cisco TelePresence server. 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, Dial Plan for Cisco Unified Communication Manager, and Building Gateways, SIP Trunks and CUBES, or being at about the CCNA Collaboration level, or having some experience working with Cisco Unified Communication Manager. I hope you'll join us as we learn about Cisco Collaboration with the Building Conferences with TelePresence and Managing Media Resources for Cisco Collaboration course at Pluralsight.
Configuring Audio and Video Conferences on CUCM and IOS Hi everyone, it's Sean Douglas, and welcome to the module, Configuring Audio and Video Conferences on Cisco Unified Communications Manager and on the IOS router. In this module, we're going to show you how to set up conferences. Because everybody likes to join a conference, at least that's what management thinks. Our goals for this module is to show you the step-by-step process so that you can configure both audio and video conferences on Unified Communications Manager and on the Cisco router. We're going to demonstrate the step-by-step process so that you'll know how to set up audio conferences on Unified Communications Manager, audio conferences on our Cisco router, and video conferences on our Cisco router. In addition to showing you the administrative steps that are needed to get these conferences going, we're going to show you how to join them. We're going to demonstrate how to join a conference using Meet-Me, ad hoc, and Conference Now, which is a new feature that's available in Unified Communications Manager version 11. And let's not forget the big picture. The underlying goal for this module, this course, and all of the courses in this track is to ensure that you have both the understanding of the technical concepts, the book terms, and the confidence that comes from knowing exactly how to configure the technology that'll be on the Implementing Cisco IP Telephony & Video, Part 1 exam.
Cisco Telepresence MSE 8000 Conference Bridge Hi everyone, it's Sean Douglas, and welcome to the module, Cisco TelePresence MSE 8000 Conference Bridge. So far in this course, we've created conferences using Unified Communication Manager and the Cisco router. Now we're going to enter the world of Cisco TelePresence. There are a lot of different servers that carry the Cisco TelePresence name, and in this module we'll answer the question, what do each of these different servers do? Then we'll look at the granddaddy of them all, the TelePresence MSE 8000 enterprise blade server. In this module, we're going to look at the roles and functions of each of the different Cisco TelePresence servers. That will help you determine whether or not you need a particular Cisco TelePresence server in your collaboration environment. Then we'll examine the characteristics of the Cisco TelePresence MSE 8000 series. This is an enterprise-level blade server that has high capacity for voice and video conferencing. It's ideal for large companies and service providers that require high availability and high performance in their conference solution. We'll examine its features, we'll also look at its capabilities, because doing so is going to help prepare you for the Implementing Cisco IP Telephony & Video, Part 1 exam.
Cisco TelePresence Server Hi everyone, I'm Sean Douglas, and welcome to the module, Cisco TelePresence Server. In this module, we're going to examine the characteristics and features of the Cisco TelePresence Server. Our goals for this module are going to be to examine the Cisco TelePresence Server characteristics. We're going to examine some of the bells and whistles like ActivePresence and ActiveControl. We're going to demonstrate how to configure Cisco TelePresence. And finally, we're going to prepare you for the Implementing Cisco IP Telephony & Video, Part 1 exam.
Creating Video Conferences Using Cisco TelePresence Conductor Hi everyone, I'm Sean Douglas, and welcome to the module, Creating Video Conferences Using Cisco TelePresence Conductor. So far in this module, we've created conferences using Unified Communication Manager and our router. And in this module, we're going to create video conferences using Cisco TelePresence Conductor. Our goals for this module are going to be to examine the Cisco TelePresence Conductor Server. We're going to look at its features, its characteristics. We'll put it under the interrogation table and shine the light on it, and answer the question, what exactly do you do? We'll look at the options we have for integrating it with Unified Communication Manager. And finally, we'll demonstrate the step-by-step process of configuring a video conference bridge using TelePresence Conductor and Unified Communications Manager.
