Course Overview

In this course you will discover the explosive dynamics of bringing voice and data together on a single network. You will learn How IP telephony has evolved; review the typology, architecture, protocols, and special issues.
The course participants will setup IP Phone and register to a Softswitch, define different services and applications which are widely used by SMB and large Enterprise.
Each one of the participants will access sophisticated Softswitch which will be on the same network for generating end-to-end IP telephony and Video calls.

Who should attend?

Professional people in the communication and IT, Engineers, software developer, Technical support, field engineers
