Course Overview

TOP

In this course, you will learn core concepts of how the Internet Protocol (IP) carries a Voice over IP (VoIP) packet. You will learn the fundamentals of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) architecture, SIP-related IP services, the advantages and disadvantages of SIP Trunking as well as Quality of Service (QoS)-Related Protocol.

In the Classroom Live version of this course, you will gain proficiency with some of the most popular VoIP software and hardware, such as Wireshark, Asterisk PBX, Kamailio SIP Proxy, Linksys Ethernet phone, and SIP-based ATA in a hands-on labs. You will also cover Cisco QoS policy administration and demonstrate successful VoIP calls in high data traffic conditions.
