Description

The Cisco? Meeting Server Advanced course is an instructor-led, lab-based, hands on. It covers the installation and configuration of a resilient and scalable Cisco Meeting Server installation.

Tasks and Features Covered

  • Cisco Meeting Server API commands
  • Scalable and resilient deployments
  • Customization
  • Recording

Prerequisites

Cisco recommends that you have the following prerequisite knowledge and skills:

  • Attendance of Cisco Meeting Server Intermediate, or Cisco Acano Certified Expert 1 or equivalent knowledge

The first lab of the Cisco Meeting Server Advanced course is an assessment of the course prerequisites. Cisco reserves the right to move students to the next available Cisco Meeting Server Intermediate course if prerequisite knowledge is not in place.

Who Should Attend
