Advanced Administration of Unified Communications Manager and Features (AAUCMF)

 

Course Overview

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.

The class utilizes Cisco Unified Communications Manager 12.5 labs, and will employ the North American Numbering Plan (NANP). Both SCCP and SIP phones are implemented, as well as both H.323 and SIP gateways.

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.

This is not a certification or implementation course.

Who should attend

  • Experienced Unified Communications Engineers
  • Anyone who has attended ACUCM w/AUC and needs more training on advanced features and troubleshooting

Prerequisites

To fully benefit from this course, students should have the following prerequisite skills and knowledge:
