Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Sean Douglas, and I want to welcome you to my course, Examining Cisco Video Conferencing Fundamentals. I've been a Cisco engineer and instructor for nearly 2 decades. In that time, I've worked extensively with Cisco networking, routing and switching, and especially voice and video collaboration. In this course, which is the first in a series that we're creating for you, we're going to examine the fundamentals of Cisco's telepresence solution, to help prepare you to pass exams, and to succeed in the real world. We're going to talk solutions. We're going to go over the components, protocols, media, and best practices used in Cisco telepresence deployments. By the end of this course, you'll be well on your way to becoming certified as a Cisco video collaborations administrator and to provide you with a detailed understanding of Cisco video technologies. Before beginning this course, you should have a basic understanding of Cisco Unified Communications Manager, either by having watched the previous courses, Basic Call Operation and Components for Cisco Collaboration, Examining Cisco Video Conferencing Endpoints, and Building Gateways SIP Trunks and Cubes for Cisco Collaboration, or having experience working with Cisco Unified Communications Manager. I hope you'll join us as we build solutions in the Examining Cisco Video Conferencing Fundamentals course at Pluralsight.
