Administering Cisco Unified Communications Manager v8.0 (ACUCM)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline
 

Course Overview

Administering Cisco Unified Communications Manager (ACUCM) v8.0 provides system administrators and networking professionals with an understanding of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System. This course teaches the concepts of IP telephony based in system administration, including its function, features, and configuration. This is an entry-level course that begins with the basic concepts of IP telephony and very quickly moves you forward into an understanding of system concepts: clustering, creation of phones and users, route plans, digit manipulation, media resources, and phone features, which are all important to supporting IP telephony in the enterprise network. The course focuses on Cisco Unified Communications Manager version 8.x. The course is geared to individuals that will be using and managing the system and performing administration for Level 1 and Level 2 support. Level 1 support is geared toward supporting phone users and making moves, adds, and changes to the desktop phone environment. Level 2 support is oriented to supporting changes in the organization, such as opening new office locations or relocating departments. The course does not cover issues of initial deployment, new cluster deployment or international deployments. Also, the course does not cover issues with the underlying network that involve routers, switches, or Cisco IOS software configuration. This course includes various lab exercises to apply what was learned in each preceding lesson. Labs begin with a newly installed publisher and subscriber. The only element that is preconfigured is two MGCP gateways, for the headquarters (HQ) and branch (BR), and an intercluster trunk pointing to the neighbor’s pod. Therefore, the student will become familiar with all the various concepts through configuration of the elements in the lab environment.

Students looking for administration skills on more recent versions of Cisco Unified Communications Manager may also be interested in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager 10.x for Administrators (CUCMA10) course.
