Cisco : Implementing Cisco Unified Communications Security


Velisa Africa is the official Global Knowledge partner in Sub-Saharan Africa. Course details : http://www.globalknowledge.ae/courses/cisco/collaboration/ucsec.html

The Implementing Cisco Unified Communications Security (UCSEC) course is designed to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills to implement security features in a Cisco Unified Communications environment.

Cisco Unified Communications support several features and mechanisms to secure voice signaling and communications and to mitigate attacks against Cisco Unified Communications networks. The Implementing Cisco Unified Communications Security (UCSEC) course introduces security mechanisms and describes different implementation scenarios that increase the security level of Cisco Unified Communications networks

Pre-Requisites

The knowledge and skills that a learner must have before attending this course are as follows:

  • Working knowledge of converged voice and data networks
  • Working knowledge of Cisco IOS gateways, Cisco Unified SRST gateways, and Cisco Unified Border Element
  • Working knowledge of Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express
  • CCNP Voice certification is recommended

To gain the prerequisite skills and knowledge, Cisco strongly recommends the knowledge of the following courses:

  • Implementing Cisco Voice Communications and QoS (CVOICE)
  • Implementing Cisco Unified Communications Manager Part 1 (CIPT1)
  • Implementing Cisco Unified Communications Manager Part2 (CIPT2)
  • Troubleshooting Cisco Unified Communications (TVOICE)
