2 of the Most Misunderstood QoS Topics

For me, the addition of QoS to the list of topic areas for the new CCNA R&S version 3 exam was a great thing. The reason is, QoS is my absolute favorite Cisco topic. So, I couldn’t wait to start recording the QoS portion of my CCNA R&S v3 Complete Video Course.

In fact, I recently shot this video on two of the most misunderstood QoS topics, Policing and Shaping. I thought this video could help you, whether you’re studying the Routing and Switching track or the Collaboration track.

WEBINAR REPLAY – Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM): The Star of the Collaboration Show

ccna collaboration May 31, 2016

Earlier this month, I did a live webinar covering the theory and configuration of a CUCM server. If you missed it, you can check out a replay below.

Also, at the end of the webinar, I offered a big discount on a couple of my Collaboration products to those in attendance. Well, great news, I’ve reactivated the discount code. So, you can benefit from it too.

Video Fundamentals

ccna collaboration Apr 26, 2016

You might have seen some of my recent Cisco Collaboration videos. Interestingly, the big difference between Cisco’s new Collaboration track than its prior Voice track is the addition of video technologies.

But before you dive into studying super cool things like Cisco’s Telepresence suite, you really need a solid foundation in video fundamentals. That’s what this video is all about.

 


 

Topics in this video include:

  • Sample Uses of Video
  • Frames Per Second (fps)
  • Refresh Rate
  • Interlaced Video
  • Progressive Video
  • Pixel
  • Aspect Ratio
  • Compression Standards (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264 (MPEG-4AVC)

Enjoy the video!

 Topics in the video include:

  • T1 and E1 Speeds
  • Time-Division Multiplexing (TDM)
  • Common Channel Signaling (CCS) vs. Channel Associated Signaling (CAS)
  • Framing (SF, ESF, Multiframe)
  • Line Coding (AMI, B8ZS, HDB3)
  • LIVE DEMO of T1 and E1 Configuration and Verification

Enjoy the video!

Overview of Cisco’s CCNA Collaboration Certification

ccna collaboration Oct 18, 2015

Cisco recently retired their CCNA Voice and CCNP Voice tracks, and have replaced those telephony-centric tracks with the new CCNA Collaboration and CCNP Collaboration tracks. While these tracks do cover traditional IP telephony concepts, the big difference is video.

The name Collaboration stems from how people can more effectively collaborate with one another if they interact using both voice and video, and depending on your budget, this collaboration experience can be extremely immersive (e.g. Cisco’s TelePresence solution).

Early next year, I’ll be releasing a series of CCNA Collaboration training videos. However, if this track interests you, this blog post will get you started.

The first bit of interesting news is that there are no prerequisites! Yep, you read that right. You do not have to have a CCNA in Routing and Switching to earn your CCNA in Collaboration. However, you do have to pass two exams:

  • Exam #1: 210-060 (CICD: Implementing Cisco...
