Implementing Cisco Video Network Devices, v.1, Part 1and Part 2 - CIVND 1 & 2 Course Outline

(5 Days)


Implementing Cisco Video Network Devices (CIVND) v1.0 5-day training program is an update to the Implementing Cisco Video Network Devices v1.0 (VIVND) course. It will help you prepare for the CCNA Collaboration certification. This course includes a combination of the self-paced (CIVND1) and classroom (CIVND2) learning for optimal instruction. This CCNA study is perfect for network administrators, systems engineers, and other IT professionals looking to advance their career.

Part 1 of Implementing Cisco Video Network Devices v1.0 (self-study material) provides you with the necessary knowledge to describe characteristics of Cisco video solutions and assess the requirements for a successful implementation of a video solution. The course describes the characteristics of a video solution and enables you to evaluate the general requirements for video deployments such as codec options, media formats, protocols, network impact, high-level architectural components, interactions, and requisites to the environment. The CCNA exam preparation is thorough and offers a robust knowledge of video network devices and how to use them in a practical setting.

Part 2 of Implementing Cisco Video Network Devices v1.0 (classroom portion) is designed to provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills to implement various Cisco video endpoints in converged Cisco video infrastructures. It will describe Cisco Business Video solutions and enable you to implement and troubleshoot Cisco Unified Communication and Collaboration, TelePresence, and Digital Media Player in different Cisco Business Video solution architectures.

The software applications that are covered in this course include:

  • Cisco Unified Communications Manager
  • Cisco Unified Communications Manager IM and Presence
  • Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server
  • Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Controller Unit
  • Cisco TMS Server
  • Part 1 is a self-study PDF course bundled in with Part 2 which is the 5-day instructor-led class. The CCNA online training is used in conjunction with in-person learning so you get the best of both worlds. if you have questions about this or any of our other CCNA exam preparation courses, contact our team. We will provide you with answers and ensure you are getting the CCNA study that you need.
