    Hi...

     

    As a quick question, what is your current network experience as of today?

     

    Thanks.

    Same here. I'm actually looking for the recorded seminar of Meet the authors Robert Cannistra and Michale Schueing, CCNA Voice Portable Command Guide, as they share best practices for Voice Labs Setups. I've searched this blasted web site with nothing but the registration page.

     

    Anyone know if a recording of this exists on the Cisco site?

    Re: CCNA Voice Getting Started

    Where to start really depends on what you know so far. What is your experience? You have passed the CCENT... yes?

     

    I flailed around for a while until I came up with some kind of a plan.

     

    -If i had to do it again I would start with INE videos. MAybe not all in one big bite alternate video and then hands on

    -Much of the lab work can be done with GNS and Call Manager installed in a VM. The versions won't match when using GNS. But at least its an easy way to play around with CME.

    -I'm going to work throguh the labs in Cert Guide as much as I can using GNS. Then rent some rack time for those parts that I can't use GNS for.

     

    For me, this is working very well. I'm not a stranger to VoIP or networking. I have plenty of hands on experience in my past. If you have zero experience, maybe it would make sense to purchase a router or two.

     

    For step one... get a couple of routers running in GNS and place some calls to softphone (IP Blue). Yu can get step by step instruction on the router config in the lab book. (On my PC, I had to disable the firewall to get things to work)

    Hello Lor - Here is a link to the recording of the webinar you mentioned: https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/docs/DOC-19971

     

    This is also available as a clickable banner on the home page of this Study Group, as well as listed as item 3.2 in my initial reply to this thread. I noticed in another thread you mentioned trouble getting the recording to playback properly. I have left you a question regarding that on the other thread as well.

     

    Thank you very much.

     

    Matt

    Re: CCNA Voice Getting Started

    It depends on ur networking background ... I will answer us about myself

    I had only CCNA knowledge, zero knowledge about voice and zero experiance

     

    I used:

    The official study guide, at some parts it was hard since everything was new to me

    At the same time I watched Jeremy Cioara videos, they were more than amazing

    Finally I used Packet Tracer for CME labs

     

    That was enough for me to pass it, but honelty it took some time from me.

     

    Wish u all the luck, and hope to see a post from ur side soon telling us u passed it

     

    Regards,

    Noor
