Path Selection, Dial-Peers and H.323 and SIP Gateways

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.


Call routing and path selection are skills that help telecommunication engineers save on toll charges. Business today will be using several different call control options in the network and the skilled IT professional will be able to differentiate between them. In this course, you will discover the path selection process of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager as well as dial-peer implementation and H.323, SIP gateway configuration.

Target Audience

Today’s IT Telecommunications Engineer working with the Cisco Unified Communications Manager must understand the basic foundation of the call agent. If you are interested in persuing CCNP collaboration, this course is necessary. Today there is a need for dedicated individuals focused on the Collaboration solution and Cisco recommends a Chief Collaboration Officer position for focus on voice and video technologies. Anyone interested in implementing or supporting the Cisco IP Telephony and Video solutions should also consider this course.
