Lessons


Gain understanding and hands-on experience on legacy gateways, analog telephony, CUBE, SIP, and Quality of Service.

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.

A Global Knowledge Exclusive: You Get…

• 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 CSCGW from Global Knowledge?

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

What You'll Learn
• VoIP, components of a VoIP network, VoIP protocols, special requirements for VoIP calls, and Codecs
• Configure gateway interconnections to support VoIP and PSTN calls
• Basic signaling protocols used on voice gateways
• Configure a gateway to support calls using different call control and signaling protocols
• Define a dial plan, describing the purpose of each dial plan component, and implement a dial plan on a voice gateway
• 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)
• Configure H.323 gateways and review their functions and operation
• Configure Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP)
• Experience G.711, and G.729 voice coding schemes
• Configure Call Admission Control three different ways
• Configure proper Caller ID
• Experience real-world connections to PBXs, and the PSTN
• Configure your router/gateway equipment to connect to our public dial plan network using different call control protocols and procedures

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.
