The Cisco ROSA Network Management System Foundation Training (ROSANMS) v3.0 is a 4-day instructor-led course that introduces learners to managing and monitoring of the equipment and network layers of video delivery systems using the Cisco ROSA Network Management System (NMS).
The course teaches learners how to customize the Cisco ROSA NMS solution to reflect the configuration of their network by adding protocols and devices. Learners learn how to monitor their network using system maps, messages (alarms), and reports. In addition, learners learn how to manage software licenses and users, change alarm parameters, automate tasks with macros, back up the server, and use several optional tasks and components.
This course combines lecture materials and hands-on labs throughout to ensure that learners can manage and monitor equipment using the Cisco ROSA NMS.

The Cisco ROSA NMS is part of the Cisco Videoscape Origination Suite for service providers.

The course is available only as a private group training (up to 12 people).
