Oracle SBC Configuration and Administration (D85180GC10)

Oracle SBC Configuration and Administration
Duration: 5 Days

What you will learn
No hands on lab environment for the TOD course format.
This Oracle Session Border Controller (SBC) Configuration and Administration training course is designed for enterprise or service provider network professionals involved in SIP session delivery and control. Although the course describes all currently available hardware platforms, all the concepts and operations are presented in a platform independent way. In a similar manner, the course is software-release independent as well.
Through in-depth discussions and hands-on exercises the course covers the Session Initiation Protocol, the benefits gained and the issues resolved by using Session Border Controllers, SBC principles, configuration concepts, configuration workflow, peering and access deployments, routine operations and more.

Learn To:
Plan SBC integration with customer?s network.
Plan and create common configurations.
Perform routine operations (system access, configuration, management, backup/restore).
Test basic functionality.

Benefits to You
Enrolling in this course will help you develop a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) as well as system and protocol-specific configuration of the SBC. The contents addressed apply equally to both service provider and enterprise deployments. You'll walk away with more knowledge of SBC architecture, concepts and administration in the form of configuration management (backups, restores and revision control) by participating in hands-on labs.
