There was a hands-on application of basic telephony and networking setup. Timely as it may seem, the virtual presence and hologram was used both by ABS-CBN and GMA respectively in the recently concluded 2010 Philippine General Elections coverage, which is very similar to Cisco’s TelePresence technology. I was taught the Cisco Unified Communications Manager, which is a call processing system using IP technology.

I was also briefed on how telecommunications process, through the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC); go about in our country – the procurement and permits of radio communication equipments. Network management (summarized by FCAPS – Fault, Configuration, Accounting, Performance, and Security), optical networking – which are protocols which transfers bits streams over optical fiber using laser or Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs), Physical Security and Building Systems – which are used to secure and manage any physical installations, Service Exchange, Storage Networking, or commonly referred to as Storage Area Network(SAN) –which is a network architecture used to attach a storage device to a server, Content Delivery System – which distributes data over different points of the network to maximize bandwidth and not allow traffic on only one server, and WebEx – which is a real-time desktop sharing, video and message conferencing  were also discussed.

  1. Maybe you can convince Cisco to donate WebEx accounts for the department. 😀
