CCNA Collaboration is the best of two worlds: Voice over IP (VoIP) and Video! This course is the first of two necessary to achieve the CIVND certification.
1. Welcome to CCNA Collaboration (CIVND1) (8 min)
Welcome to the CCNA Collaboration course! In this Nugget, Jeremy provides an overview of the CCNA Collaboration certification requirements and offers some key advice on how to get the most from this course.
2. Components: Understanding Building Blocks of a Video Network (18 min)
If you're going to be a successful chef, you need to understand the ingredients you have to work with. In the same way, a successful unified communication specialist knows the key components of the network he/she can use to build an enterprise! In this Nugget, Jeremy walks through these video components and provides an explanation of where each would be used.
3. Video Dictionary: Frame Rate, Interlacing, and Progressive Video (12 min)
Coming from the Cisco network realm into a new world of video standards can be a shock to the system. In this Nugget, Jeremy masterfully describes the core terms and concepts you'll need to understand video focusing on frame rate, interlacing, and progressive video.
4. Video Dictionary: Aspect, Pixels, Video Format, Color Standards, and Analog to Digital (12 min)
Going from the Cisco network realm into a new world of video standards can be mind-boggling. In this Nugget, Jeremy masterfully describes the core terms and concepts you'll need to understand video focusing on aspect ratio, pixels, video format, color standards, and analog to digital conversion.
5. Video Standards: Understanding Applications of Video (10 min)
While it may seem like video is "everywhere" with a thousand different uses, it really boils down to four major applications. In this Nugget, Jeremy defines those applications and does an overview of each.
6. Video Standards: Understanding the Protocols of Video (28 min)
Just like TCP/IP governs the communication of the data networks of today, there are a gambit of video protocols used to manage communication. In this Nugget, Jeremy explores the signaling protocols (ISDN, H.323, SIP), streaming protocols (RTP, SRTP), and CODECs (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4/H.264).
7. Network Requirements: Quality of Service (QoS) (30 min)
Without QoS, it won't take long at all until your video network explodes. In order to implement video RIGHT, you MUST have a strategy of QoS for your congested links in your network. In this Nugget, Jeremy does a masterful and passionate job of communicating the "villains and QoS heroes" of the network environment.
8. Network Requirements: Call Admission Control (CAC) (6 min)
With QoS in the spotlight, Call Admission Control (CAC) is often overlooked. Without this little gem, your voice and video traffic would quickly cannibalize itself and fail. In this Nugget, Jeremy discusses the four methods of CAC you can use on your network environment.
9. Components: Cisco Video Elements (11 min)
Up until now, we have spoken of the video network elements generically. Now it's time to fill in the "Cisco version" of these devices. In this Nugget, Jeremy unpacks the gateway and control services, endpoints, and additional telepresence servers that put this solution together.
10. Components: Handling Environment (10 min)
It's true. The "IT Guy" is a broad job description for someone who's expected to know a little about everything that has a plug. In this Nugget, Jeremy goes through the engineering of a teleconference room, complete with lighting placement, colors, sound acoustics, HVAC, power, and network requirements.
11. Components: Installing the Telepresence Unit (2 min)
Based on the size of your IT organization, you may or may not be called upon to install the Cisco telepresence system. In this micro-sized Nugget, Jeremy explains what you will encounter when you do.
