Authorized self-study guide for voice over data network foundation learning

This book will help you to:

  • Configure Voice over Frame Relay, ATM, or IP using Cisco IOS(r) software
  • Analyze existing voice hardware/software, and select the Cisco multiservice access devices that best serve your needs
  • Analyze existing branch and regional office voice networks and services, and choose the optimum transmission method for voice traffic: Frame Relay, ATM, or IP
  • Learn the fundamentals of VoFR, VoATM, and VoIP standards, protocols, and the Cisco hardware that supports these services
  • Learn the basics of the Architecture for Voice, Video, and Integrated Data (AVVID) including CallManager, Cisco IP Phones, and related voice gateway equipment
  • Design, configure, integrate, and optimize an enterprise network in remote branch and regional offices by using integrated access technology that combines voice and data transmission over Frame Relay, ATM, and IP connections, access devices, and CIPT client hardware
  • Learn the fundamentals of PBXs, and apply the principles and concepts to develop a process for integrating Cisco equipment with PBXs and for replacing PBXs

Cisco Voice over Frame Relay, ATM, and IP teaches you the Cisco solutions for voice technology (VoIP, VoFR, VoATM). This complete solutions guide helps you analyze existing voice hardware and software and select the Cisco multiservice access devices that best serve the needs of your network environment. In addition to learning how to design, configure, integrate, and optimize networks in remote branch and regional offices, this book also provides you with a fundamental understanding of PBXs, enabling you to develop a process for integrating Cisco equipment with or replacing PBXs.

Cisco Voice over Frame Relay, ATM, and IP prepares you for voice and data integration by teaching you how to install and configure Cisco voice and data network routers; how to configure Cisco voice-enabled equipment for Voice over Frame Relay, ATM, and IP; how to configure voice ports, dial peers, and special commands to enable voice transmission over a data network; and how to perform voice traffic analysis to determine how to improve the quality of service (QoS) for delay-sensitive voice traffic.

This book features actual router output and configuration examples to aid in the discussion of the configuration of these technologies. At the end of each chapter your comprehension is tested by review questions. Cisco Voice over Frame Relay, ATM, and IP has all of the tools you need to vastly improve your understanding of the Cisco solution to voice networking needs.

Cisco Voice over Frame Relay, ATM, and IP is part of a recommended self-study program from Cisco Systems(r) that includes simulation and hands-on training from authorized Cisco Learning Partners, and self-study products from Cisco Press.
