Design and build integrated VoIP networks

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Reference books for 'Design and build integrated VoIP networks' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria

1. Plan design concepts of a voice network for specified voice quality

1.1 Determine the design requirements of an IP-based voice network including the choice of network elements

1.2 Evaluate the various applications of real time protocols and of signalling protocols for an appropriate gateway

1.3 Design a site numbering plan including digit manipulation and path selection process

1.4 Plan and assign calling privileges as required

1.5 Predict VoIP call flow and potential impact on voice quality considerations and network performance

2. Design, configure implement and test voice protocols and interoperation of VoIP communications network

2.1 Produce the design layout of the voice network according to the design requirements

2.2 Design and configure a gateway and a gatekeeper to using H.323 protocol suite for dial plan resolution and call admission control for the network

2.3 Configure and test the use of real-time protocols, call management protocols and gateway signalling protocol in the network design

2.4 Analyse the function and interoperation of gatekeepers within an IP communications network

3. Design, configure and test a VoIP IP-to-IP call system

3.1 Analyse the IP-to-IP gateway features and functionality requirements for a given network design requirement

3.2 Configure the gatekeeper to support an IP-to-IP gateway

3.3 Configure and test the IP-to-IP gateway to provide address hiding, protocol and media interworking and call admission control implementations

3.4 Produce test results and evaluate against design requirements
