TCM-205 - Voice and Video Systems

4 credits

This course examines the encoding and transmission of voice and video data streams. The course begins with a brief overview of the traditional analog telephone system, private branch exchanges (PBX), circuit switching, analog video encoding and transmission. We will cover the evolution of these technologies to IP phones, the voice over IP (VOIP) protocol, call center management software, video encoding and decoding (codec) for transmission over data networks, video conferencing, and video monitoring systems. A brief introduction and overview of TCP\JP networking is intended to provide the students with enough networking knowledge to configure an IP telephone system.
