Advanced Administration of Unified Communications Manager and Features

Session Detail:    Virtual 5 Day

Session Detail:

Advanced Administration for Unified Communications Manager and Features (AAUCMF) is a 5-day instructor led course that is intended for experienced unified communications administrators who need in-depth knowledge of Cisco Unified Communications Manager advanced features, services, and troubleshooting. This course is intended to be a follow-on course to ACUCM+AUC, and combines elements from off-the-shelf courses CVOICE, ICOMM, CIPT 2 and TVOICE. After a short review of Unified Communication architecture and basic administration, the course begins with a discussion of new and changed features from previous versions of CUCM. It then moves into implementation of a multi-site dial plan architecture including signaling, call routing for multiple sites with overlapping directory numbers, digit manipulation, automated alternate routing, PSTN backup- and TEHO implementation. Next, call admission control, hardware media resource implementation, and inter-cluster communications are addressed. Students will spend time implementing extension mobility, unified mobility (including single-number reach) and device mobility. The CUCM portion of the class concludes with a module on tools, tips and tricks for the Bulk Administration Tool and a lesson on reading CUCM trace files for troubleshooting.
