Implementing Cisco TelePresence Video Solutions, Part 2 (VTVS2) v1.0 is designed to teach technicians who install and support Cisco TelePresence solutions to install, configure, operate, and maintain core visual communication components. Those components include telepresence endpoints, gatekeepers, multipoint control units (MCUs), and management software. In this course, students will add Cisco TelePresence products to existing Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Unified CM) environments. This training is also appropriate for end-user technical staff, such as video system administrators and first-line support personnel.
