Based on Teracom's well known Course 101, fine tuned and built from over 20 years of instructor-led training, we will get right through the common jargon to help demystify telephony and telephone systems, explain what the jargon and buzzwords mean, their underlying ideas, and how all of it works together… in easy to understand plain English. The courses include photos of actual equipment from inside a Central Office along with the outside plant. This multimedia course is a perfect way to help you get up to speed on all things about traditional telephony.The CTNS Certification Package provides you with the training needed to become a Subject Matter Expert in Telecom, Datacom and Networks, from POTS, to wireless, to MPLS… plus it comes with a certificate to prove you have done it.

In course V2, we learn the concepts, technologies and standards for transmitting voice calls with the traditional techniques. We'll provide a full understanding of what exactly "digital" means and how it is actually implemented. You will learn about DS0 and digital hierarchy, and you'll take an interesting practical tour of digital circuits that includes T1, T3, SONET and ISDN. We'll see, in detail, how voice, data and video is integrated through TDM and channelization.
We'll follow with a closer look at just how this is done. We'll explain multiplexers, copper, pulses and repeaters, fiber rings, fiber optics and DWDM. Many of the transmission systems we presently have in place have been designed for digital voice communications with these techniques. They are also used in data and networking. This course gives you the concrete knowledge of the infrastructure needed to have a complete understanding of circuits and the services.Part 1 Digital Communications

V4 Understanding Networking 1 - full quality preview · Video Tutorial V4: The OSI Layers: The FedEx Analogy · Networking training on DVD
This course builds on the basic packet, frame and IP networking concepts of Course V3, Fundamentals of Datacom and Networking, to put in place a solid understanding of protocol stacks, the OSI model and layers and IP addressing including address classes, static vs. dynamic public vs. private and network address translation.
In Part 3, we move to the next higher level of knowledge, understanding packet networks and bandwidth on demand services from telecommunication service providers. After understanding the core concepts, including virtual circuits, we use the grand-daddy of packet services, X.25 to explain jargon: connection-oriented vs. connectionless and reliable vs. unreliable packet networks.
Then we progress through technologies: Frame Relay, ATM and finish with MPLS. We'll trace the flow of TCP and IP packets from server to client across Frame Relay, then see how the same TCP/IP works over MPLS.
IP over MPLS will be the replacement for all services including ISDN, Frame Relay, T1s, native ATM. This is the reason why understanding the OSI layers, TCP/IP over MPLS, and how a protocol stack works is career-enhancing knowledge.Part 1 Protocol Stacks and the OSI 7-Layer Reference Model

V8 Understanding Voice over IP 1 - full quality preview · Video Tutorial V8: Softswitches and Visit to a CO switch · VoIP training courses on DVD
Understanding Voice over IP is a video course with high quality design made for those wanting to understand and get themselves up to speed on VoIP technologies, jargon and buzzwords, mainstream solutions, and most importantly, the fundamental ideas and concepts underlying VoIP. It is designed independent of any specific vendor's viewpoint…containing knowledge you won't find speaking with salespeople or reading trade magazines.
Featuring detailed graphics, extensive text notes, bullets, and our often humorous and engaging instructor Eric Coll, M.Eng., P.Eng., Understanding Wireless 1 training courses will provide you with the solid foundation necessary to intelligently discuss, evaluate, compare, and understand Voice over IP technologies, its products and implementations.
We begin by discussing VoIP; the Big Picture. We cover everything from communicating through your computer via the Internet, to VoIP Carriers, VoIP WANS, and PBX replacement. We will introduce the many different concepts and ideas, and the hardware and software involved with VoIP.
We'll go over regulatory issues, the positions of different carrier services, future issues to plan for, and we'll give you some valuable strategic insights that can benefit immediately in planning for or managing the many aspects of Voice over IP.
This course explains the big-picture view of VoIP, discussing each component of the VoIP system. It includes softswitches and gateways, RTP and SIP standards that are used, and the many different ways of implementing Voice over IP .

V9 Understanding Voice over IP 2 - full quality preview · Video Tutorial V9: QoS and Traffic Conditioning · VoIP training courses on DVD
In Understanding VoIP 2, we explain packetized voice and the voice quality.
The first part discusses the process of how voice packetization and codecs work. We will cover issues like packet loss and jitter that can have effects on the quality of the reconstruction of speech, jitter buffers and the role of RTP, and finish with an explanation of the "best practices" used for achieving voice quality.
The second section discusses network QoS: MPLS and Diff-Serv. We will cover MPLS and explain how providers use it to implement the right prioritization in Service Level Agreements. In addition, we'll cover 802.1P and the queuing methods.
This course gives learners an understanding of how exactly voice is packetized, the different factors that may affect sound quality, the different codecs that are used, QoS, MPLS, RTP and jitter buffers, Diff-Serv and Service Level Agreements.

V10 Understanding Voice over IP 3 - full quality preview · Video Tutorial V10: SIP · VoIP training courses on DVD
In this course, we'll learn SIP and how the connections are made.
We will explain the SIP trapezoid, describe how it works, demystify the buzzwords and jargon such as location server or proxy server. We'll explain how SIP works with call managers and softswitches, and a step by step trace of an IP phone call will be established.
In part 2, we'll go over connecting to carriers by using traditional PRIs and DS0 PBX trunks, how Megaco connects to the story, IP interconnect, integrated messaging, the co-existence with older legacy systems, and more.
This course will set you up with solid working knowledge of both SIP and IP call flow. You will understand the options available for connecting VoIP systems with PSTN, LECs and IXCs.
