TrainSignal Releases Exchange Server 2010 Unified Messaging Training
SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Dec. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — TrainSignal, the global leader in professional computer training, announced the release of their Exchange Server 2010 Unified Messaging Training course.
The course branches off of TrainSignal’s Microsoft Exchange Server course line to provide a designated focus on unified communications, as well as the auxiliary skills in telephony which server administrators traditionally do not possess. Students of the course can expect to take the basic knowledge of an Exchange administrator and supplement it with a specialty in Microsoft unified communications.
The lessons of the course aim to establish a deep knowledge of how the UM server role functions within the Exchange 2010 environment. Ultimately, the course will only touch upon the basics of telephony where necessary, and focus on the configuration & development of a Microsoft UM environment. Once students of the course complete the lab setup, they will learn how to build the UM environment through demonstrations of both the administrative and end-user aspects.
The key lessons for prospective Exchange Server 2010 Unified Messaging Training students to note are:
- Configuring Dial Plans, IP Gateways, Mailbox Policies and Auto Attendants
- Testing & Troubleshooting UM Configuration via Command Line
- Working with UM Language Packs
- UM Disaster Recovery and High Availability
The course instructor is Microsoft MVP for Exchange J. Peter Bruzzese. Peter has previously created several Exchange and SharePoint training courses for TrainSignal. He has authored over 10 books including, “Server 2008 How-To,” and “Using Windows 7,” and regularly contributes to Redmond Magazine, Windows IT Pro and TechTarget. Peter is also a veteran speaker often sought after at TechMentor conferences, TechEd, IT260 and Connections.
In creating a course focused on a niche specialty of IT, Peter stresses its value in saying, “Unified Messaging is an awesome and polished solution that will not only connect with your users’ inboxes, not only provide a means to have users dial in to obtain their inbox information through auto attendants, and not only provide speech-to-text transcription for your users’ emails so they can have a voicemail preview of their messages–it provides the key to unlocking the door that separates your IT world from telephony. And that door, once open, will yield innumerable rewards for both your organization and you personally as you become a specialist in Unified Messaging.”
Users of this course should have experience and comfortable knowledge of common Windows Server 2008/2008 R2 administrative tasks. Students should also have experience with Exchange 2010, perhaps through certification or viewing of TrainSignal’s Exchange 2010 Admin Course.
The hardware set-up used by the instructor in the course consists of a Dell T310 PowerEdge Server (16 GB RAM) and Server 2008 R2 with Hyper-V as the parent system. Multiple child VMs are running Server 2008 R2 and serving as domain controllers or member servers. Member servers are prepared & loaded with Exchange 2010 SP1/SP2.
The Exchange Server 2010 Unified Messaging Training course contains 16 lessons in over 5 hours of video instruction. Students will receive 2 DVDs containing video lessons and additional content. Each lesson is available in several formats, iPod Video, Mp3 Audio, .WMV and high quality AVI, allowing students to use course materials on a variety of devices. Students can view all materials online after signing up for the course, ensuring instant access. The course also includes PDF files of instructor notes.
