Cisco® Operating Cisco® IP Fabric for Media Solution v2.0 (IPFMSN)

The Operating Cisco IP Fabric for Media Solution (IPFMSN) v2.0 course introduces you to the Cisco® IP Fabric for Media (IPFM) solution. The course is designed for broadcast engineers who will use IP technologies to replace Serial Digital Interface (SDI)-based deployments. You will learn about Cisco IPFM deployment, operation, and troubleshooting.

The course also covers the Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) Media Controller, a core component of the Cisco IPFM solution. 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
