Sunset Learning Instructor, John Meersma, takes you through the CUCM ILS Configuration followed by an SME setup demonstration. ILS (Intercluster Lookup Service) lets users call other endpoints using an email address called a URI (Uniform Resource Identifier). This video explains how to configure Unified Communications Manager to use ILS to dynamically share those addresses across multiple clusters. The instructor also shows how to configure SME (Session Management Edition), which acts as a centralized hub, connecting the various CUCM clusters together. Finally, we test and verify that our configuration was successful. Viewers will be able to use this video as step by step guide to set up their own ILS and SME Collaboration networks.
