About this course:

This course will provide you the knowledge and skills around the Cisco IP Fabric for Media (IPFM) solution.

You will also learn about Cisco IPFM deployment, operation, and troubleshooting. Broadcast engineers who will use IP technologies to replace Serial Digital Interface (SDI)-based deployments will be able to take advantage from this course.

Through lab exercises that focus on building IP fabric as a baseline for a complete IPFM solution, you will learn how to deploy and troubleshoot the DCNM Media Controller to control flows through the fabric. The course also covers the Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) Media Controller, a core component of the Cisco IPFM solution.
