How to Create a CCNP Collaboration Home Lab

Proper configuration is key to maximizing cost savings when implementing a collaboration platform. Are you utilizing enough bandwidth? Are your headers too large? Are your phones working properly (hard or soft?)?
Lab it up before you make any changes or implement a system. It doesn’t need to be expensive. Chuck Keith, a webinar presenter, shared how to set up a home lab that is ideal for people who want to improve their collaboration skills.
