CIVND1 1.0: Video Conferencing and Protocol

CIVND1 is focused on the Chief Collaboration Officer or telecommunications administrator responsible for the knowledge to describe characteristics of video solutions and assess the requirements for a successful implementation of a video solution.


Expected Duration
89 minutes

The protocols used for video conferencing boil down to two choices: SIP or H.323. You will need to determine which protocols are a better fit for your video solution. This course covers the SIP and H.323 protocol suite in addition to components of RTP, the real-time transport protocol used to stream audio and video through the network. The Multipoint controller, VCS server, and ISDN connections are also briefly introduced. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Cisco exam Implementing Cisco Video Network Devices, Part 1 (CIVND1) v1. This exam counts toward the CCNA Collaboration certification.
