CCNA Video

by Mirek Burnejko

CCNA VideoCCNA Video is the newest training and certification program from Cisco. In these days we see more and more video communication in the enterprise world. That’s why Cisco decided to provide a program who can prove your knowledge about Cisco’s video solutions (Cisco TelePresence
videoconferencing and mobile video applications) and full integration with Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

It’s an entry-level certification, but we can find here a lot of configuration. That’s a good sign. We can also see in the near future CCNP Video and (we hope so) CCIE Video.
