Learning VoIP and Unified Communications

Wed, 07/19/2017 - 20:00
Today, when you make a call, you are most likely using Voice over IP or VoIP. VoIP is changing the way we communicate. VoIP uses the existing Internet and network to transfer and route voice traffic in IP packets. In many cases, it is a part of a Unified Communications (UC) system. UC integrates VoIP, video, email, and instant messaging into one seamless business application. Learn about UC and its many layers, including terminals, applications, codecs, gateways, real-time protocols, and network operations, so you can integrate UC and VoIP into your business network.

Lisa Bock compares the traditional Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) to VoIP, and discusses the framework and components necessary for VoIP to be possible. She reviews codecs, including characteristics such as bitrate and voice quality; protocols for setup, communication control, and data transport; and media gateways, signaling protocols, and intermediary systems such as translators and mixers. Lisa then reviews business integration and the importance of conducting a needs analysis and network assessment prior to implementation. Learn about the many value-added services UC can provide, such as integrating VoIP with email, billing, management software, and other customer management systems. Lisa wraps up with a discussion on how ensuring quality of service (QoS) in a VoIP network minimizes latency and jitter and the importance of VoIP security to prevent malware, impersonation, hijacking, and denial of service attacks.

Revit Areas

Tue, 07/18/2017 - 20:00
Architects and designers are often tasked with calculating and reporting the sizes of the spaces within a project. Typically, a set of detailed area calculations following specific rules and guidelines—which are often set by building officials, leasing agents, and others—is required. If you need to make such calculations, you'll likely find that you need more precision than is possible with Revit rooms. In such cases, you need to use Revit area elements and area plans instead of rooms. Areas appear very similar to rooms, but they're separate elements with a unique purpose and workflow.

In this course, Paul F. Aubin explores the creation of area plans and areas, and discusses the workflow that enables them. Using these tools, see how you can group and quantify the spaces within a project, and create detailed and accurate calculations of all important areas. The resulting information can be presented graphically onscreen, printed, scheduled, reported, and exported as necessary to satisfy a variety of project stakeholders—those using Revit and those who don't. If you have found it difficult to capture the intricacies of area calculations in your Revit projects—or have only tried to do so using the room elements—then you owe it to yourself to give area elements a try.

Selling with Stories

Tue, 07/18/2017 - 20:00

Join Paul Smith—the author of the best-selling book Sell with a Story: How to Capture Attention, Build Trust, and Close the Sale—as he shares how to find, craft, and deliver compelling sales stories that resonate with buyers.
