In this course, you will focus on the legacy gateway and router portions of IP Telephony. You will gain extensive experience with the configuration of legacy analog telephony technologies such as Foreign Exchange Station (FXS), Foreign Exchange Office (FXO), and Primary Rate Interface (PRI). In addition to legacy technologies you will gain hands on experience with CUBE and SIP protocols. You will build a working Cisco Unified Communications Manager which will support all major gateway protocols such as MGCP, H.323, and SIP. Troubleshooting will be addressed as a gateway level including common debug techniques and commands.

You'll gain an understanding of converged voice and data networks as it relates to gateway design and deployment. You will gain comprehensive hands-on experience configuring and deploying Gateways, CUBEs, Quality of Service, and troubleshooting in VoIP networks.

In addition to the knowledge and skills required to integrate gateways into an enterprise VoIP network, you’ll learn how to build and test sophisticated IP telephony dial plans that use both CUCM Dial Plan and Dial Peers at an IOS level which can be used as a template for a real deployment.

The course includes a comprehensive study of Quality of Service (QoS), in which you’ll learn to configure QoS to support real-time traffic.

You Receive:

  • Enhanced content that exceeds standard authorized Cisco content
  • Only course dedicated to specific Gateway technologies and Quality of Service
  • World-Class Certified Cisco Systems Instructors

Why Take This Training?
Every pod has internal and external phones, and just like in a real network, the same simulated public switched telephone network (PSTN) is accessible through all clusters providing failover scenarios for bandwidth and connectivity problems. To more accurately reflect real-world scenarios, you will configure the gateway connections to simulated PBX systems.

We have set ourselves apart from other Cisco training providers by enhancing our CSCGW hands-on labs to include a real dial plan and Class of Service for calling out to the PSTN. Our voice network labs use the latest hardware and software so you will gain experience with the recent stable IOS release (15.X IOS M currently). Plus, each pod contains the following gateway cards for student configuration: 2xFXS, 2xFXO, and 2xT1 ports (PRI and T1-CAS) as well as serial ports for WAN connectivity. All of our IP telephony courses provide a realistic simulated PSTN accessible through both PRI and FXO ports. You will build and test a real dial plan including:

  • 911
    • three-digit service codes: 411, 511, and so forth
    • seven-digit local numbers
    • 10-digit local numbers
    • 11-digit long distance numbers
    • International numbers
    • Configure and test all dial peers as appropriate
  • Network engineers, architects, and support staff who:

    • Maintain and configure voice and data network devices
    • Are considering various methodologies to implement VoIP
    • Require a fundamental understanding of the issues and solutions related to implementation

  • Implement a Cisco Unified Border Element (CUBE) gateway to connect to an Internet Telephony Service Provider
  • Investigate the use of various traditional telephony connections, such as FXS, FXO, E&M, T1 (CAS and PRI), and E1 (CAS and PRI)
  • Configure and troubleshoot Cisco's new ISR routers and explore their DSP configuration (PVDM3 cards)
