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 11.5, 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.

Sunset Learning developed this course to provide additional training for those who already have a basic understanding of CUCM and Unity Connection administration and are looking further training. This is not a certification or implementation course. 

Prerequisites:

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

  • CCNA Voice or equivalent knowledge, or
  • ACUCM+AUC and additional field experience

 

Target Audience:

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

 

Course Objectives:

  • Describe CUCM signaling to phones, gateways, and media resources (H.323, SIP, SCCP)
  • Configure inbound and outbound call routing in a multisite environment with overlapping DNs 
  • Configure intersite dialing with PSTN backup using Local Route Groups
  • Use class of control to control inbound call flow and permit blocking of inbound calls
  • Implement Survivable Remote Site Telephony for both SCCP and SIP devices
  • Implement intersite and intercluster Call Admission Control and intersite Automated Alternate Routing
  • Implement DSP hardware media resources
  • Implement Tail-End Hopoff (TEHO)
  • Configure Extension Mobility, Unified Mobility (Single Number Reach and Mobile Voice Access), and Device Mobility
  • Use CUCM Tools such as the Real Time Monitoring Tool to Monitor and perform basic Troubleshooting
  • Deploy new CUCM 10.x Features such as Native Call Queuing, Intercluster CAC and Deterministic Codec Selection
  • Generate and Read Trace Files for SCCP, SIP and H.323 Call Setup and Resource Allocation
