Implementing Advanced Telepresence Video Solutions Parts 1 and 2

Alert Me


Implementing Advanced Telepresence Video Solutions Parts 1 and 2 is a 5-day training program that is designed to explain implementing, supporting, and troubleshooting Cisco TelePresence video solutions. This Cisco Telepresence Training combines e-learning with the in-person classroom experience so learners have an opportunity to gain hands-on experience and refine their skills.

The e-Learning portion of this Cisco training course (VTVS1) teaches field engineers to deploy Cisco TelePresence Video Express Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) solutions. You will learn features, functions, design, and deployment planning for Cisco endpoint product sets including C-Series, MX Series and EX Series systems. The course prepares you for the proctored 500-007 Implementing Cisco TelePresence Video Solutions, Part 1 (VTVS1) exam. 

The classroom portion of this Cisco Telepresence training course (VTVS2) teaches you how to configure, operate, and maintain core visual communication components, including Cisco TelePresence endpoints, gatekeepers, multipoint control units (MCUs), and management software. Additionally, you will learn to add Cisco TelePresence to existing Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CM) environments. The course prepares you for the 500-006 Implementing Cisco TelePresence Video Solutions, Part 2 (VTVS2) exam.
