VND / VIVND / CIVND

VND / VIVND / CIVND Video Network Devices (CCNA Collaboration)

Compass exclusively offers a 1-week bootcamp covering the basic video network concepts from CIVND1 and CIVND2 where you’ll get hands-on experience with a Cisco DX70 endpoint, with updated software in the course manual and labs. VND is an updated product course that still provides a path for those pursuing Cisco Video Network Specialist and CCNA Collaboration certifications while also providing the updated product information needed to do your job today.

What sets the Compass CIVND course apart from other training providers is our tried and true, ‘Onsite’ delivery model. We are the only Cisco Partner to provide a real, ‘Hands On’ experience, where the other partners have turned to a ‘Virtual’ delivery model, to save on cost. Compass continues to give customers the best hands on experience possible, where students are able to touch and see the endpoints they will be working with on a daily basis. And with the ever changing market and multiple endpoints to chose from, no one else offers access to the physical endpoints, most current software updates and the latest course manuals. Our course enables students to implement and troubleshoot Cisco Unified Communication, Collaboration and TelePresence in the different Cisco video solution architectures, first hand.

Video Network Devices (VND) covers the characteristics of video and unified collaboration solutions. It teaches students to assess the requirements for a successful implementation of a video solution using the full line of announced Cisco products loaded with current software releases. This course describes the characteristics of integrating a video solution into a unified (voice & video) environment and enables students to evaluate the general requirements for video deployments such as coding options, media formats, protocols, network impact, high-level architectural components and their interactions, and requisites to the environment.

Video Network Devices (VND) is a 5-day instructor-led (ILT) class that offers students the necessary knowledge and skills to implement various Cisco Video endpoints in converged Cisco video infrastructures, including Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM) and Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server (VCS).  This course describes Cisco business video solutions and enables students to implement and troubleshoot Cisco Unified Communication and Collaboration and TelePresence in different Cisco business video solution architectures.

This course replaces:

  • VIVND1 & VIVND2 (VIVND) – Implementing Cisco Video Network Devices (current software and new products make the VND bootcamp a more current alternative)
  • TVS1 / PAIATVS1 – Implementing Advanced TelePresence Video Solutions Parts 1 (Discontinued)
  • PAIUCMTV (Discontinued)
  • UCM9VV (Discontinued)

Please Note: Students that register for class less than one week to the start of class, will receive only an electronic copy of the Student Guide. Students will still receive a printed copy of the Lab Guide. Refunds or reschedule requests will only be granted if Cancellation Insurance has been purchased.  Refunds must be requested at least 15 days prior to the course start date.
