ACUCW1 - v11.5 Administering Cisco Unified Communications Workspace Part 1

This exclusive course focuses on adding phones and users in an environment that is similar to what you will see in your own system, including:

  • Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM) v11.5
  • Unity Connection v11.5
  • Client devices

You will learn how to access the CUCM administrative pages to perform moves, adds, and changes of Cisco IP phones, while configuring users and associating them with phones. You will learn to configure simple features, such as DND, Music on Hold, MeetMe conferencing, and shared lines and barge, as well as access to CUCM user web pages. You’ll also learn to configure voice mail accounts for users, build a Jabber Client, and manage licenses using Prime License Manager with Cisco Unified Communications Manager v11.5

You will gain a basic understanding of route patterns that are used for dialing and Class of Service, which is used to control who can dial where, such as internal, local, long distance, and so forth.

Why Take ACUCW1 from Global IT Training?
No other training partner offers a course like ACUCW1, which is designed to address the needs of entry-level administrators in North America.

  • Prerequisite knowledge or router-configuration experience is not required.
  • Labs are based on a preconfigured network with the focus on user and phone moves, adds, changes, and simple feature configuration. For Unity Connection, the focus is on subscriber administration.
  • Entry-level administrators do not configure routers, so no router configuration is included in the class.
  • Accompanying follow-on course provides an excellent track for career development.

The Global IT Training ACUCW1 lab environment offers a unique, real-world environment for learning how to administer IP telephony, video, and voice mail. The ACUCW1 class focuses on entry-level administration, offering you a preconfigured environment that has:

  • All necessary services installed and the system setup preconfigured
  • A complete dial plan that uses a SIP trunk to access a simulated (public switched telephone network) PSTN
  • A complete Class of Service deployment that uses the line/device approach
  • Unity Connection 11.5 servers that provide voice mail capabilities

The lab environment features a fully configured cluster with Headquarters and PSTN sites. A complete dial plan, including Class of Service, is deployed using the most recent CUCM features supporting simpler dial plan configuration. Our Unified Communications (UC) courses provide a simulated PSTN, enabling you to gain an understanding of the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) and the concepts associated with a variable-length on-net dial plan supporting multiple sites with overlapping extensions. In this class, the dial plan is preconfigured and allows you to apply Class of Service to phones and lines and to test calling to 3-digit, 7-digit, 10-digit, 11-digit, and international route patterns.

  • Deploy CUCM 11.5
  • Work with two IP phones and two Cisco IP Communicator per student pod
    • Two internal 9951 phones and two IP Communicator phones
    • One test phone allowing students to test out calling to the PSTN and incoming
  • Work with a real dial plan including:
    • 911
    • 3-digit service codes: 411, 511, etc.
    • 7-digit local numbers: 555-1901
    • 10-digit local numbers: 416-777-1901
    • 11-digit long distance numbers: 1-733-802-1901
    • International numbers: 011441902

Our next-generation Cisco UC platform combines the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) with a Vmware DRS cluster, distributing the load for individual classrooms across 16 UCS B-Series blades provisioned with 1.6 TB of RAM. You will access and control your environment using the vSphere client in the same way you would in a production environment. Taking advantage of the improved performance of the UCS environment, we can deploy additional capabilities while improving classroom performance. Our new UC on UCS lab environment provides enhanced and exclusive labs that you won’t find with any other training provider, including:

  • Prime Collaboration Licensing
  • IM & P Server
  • Cisco Unity Connection
