Cisco H.323 and SIP Online Training
This intermediate Cisco H.323 and SIP training prepares network administrators to choose between and use H.323 or SIP on your collaboration network, ensuring that your network maintains communication reliably.
Using H.323 and SIP in your collaboration networks is an essential element of running a VoIP or telephony network. H.323 is one of the world's most commonly used multimedia communications systems in packet-switched and IP networks. Meanwhile, SIP is a multimedia communication protocol.
The differences between these two are subtle, but that's what this training teaches you: how to choose between the two protocols and how to enable and optimize them on your Cisco network.
Once you're done with this Cisco H.323 and SIP training, you'll know how to choose between and use H.323 or SIP on your collaboration network, ensuring that your network maintains communication reliably.
For anyone who manages their Cisco training, this Cisco training can be used to onboard new network administrators, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Cisco reference resource.
