CIPT1 - Implementing Cisco Unified Communications IP Telephony Part 1 v8.0

Course Description/Agenda

This hands-on course prepares you for configuring a Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM) solution in a multisite environment.

Focusing primarily on CUCM v7.x/8.x, you will learn basic administrative tasks, such as configuring users and associating them with phones, as well as more advanced topics, such as unified mobility, Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP), H.323 gateways, and media resources.

In today's business world, globalization is key, so you will build dial plans to place on-net and off-net phone calls in North American and European sites. You'll learn how to globalize your dial plan using E.164 addressing and how to implement routing and calling privileges based on location.

What You'll Learn

  • How the CUCM administrative and service GUIs work
  • Activate, start, and stop CUCM services
  • Configure base CUCM components, such as date time groups, device pools, Call Manager groups, and other common elements
  • Add and delete phones manually and using auto registration
  • Use the BAT tool to add phones and users and to change configurations
  • Add users, assign them capabilities, and associate them with phones
  • Configure phone features: Music on Hold and phone services
  • Set up media resources to use for MOH and conferencing
  • The NANP
  • Build a dial plan including route patterns, route lists, and route groups supporting both the NANP and dialing in Europe
  • Deploy line/device Class of Service using partitions and calling search spaces and translation patterns for call blocking
  • Investigate globalization using E.164 addressing
  • Configure advanced Class of Service capabilities, such as time of day routing, client matter codes, and forced access codes
  • Call coverage (hunt lists) and configuration
  • Unified mobility (single number reach)
  • Configure Presence and Busy Lamp Fields (BLFs)
  • Configure DSP resources

Global Knowledge Unified Communications CIPT1 Lab Topology

Our investment in enhanced and exclusive labs means you get the experience you need using current software and hardware in North America.

Cisco Unified Communications labs are based on pods. Two students form a team and have control of one pod, referred to by the letter N. The logical topology for a Global Knowledge Unified Communications pod is illustrated in the lab topology diagram for this course. A central Call Manager cluster deployed by your instructor is used to provide an IP telephony test environment that includes a simulated PSTN complete with 3-digit service codes, overlapping 7- and 10-digit patterns, and 11-digit and international patterns. Each pod also contains 2811 Integrated Services Routers running IOS 15.0(1)M2. The PSTN is accessible via a PRI, FXO ports, and SIP trunks. Global Knowledge lab topologies include Headquarters, Branch A, Branch B (with extensions that overlap with Branch A), and a Frankfurt branch. CIPT1 uses Headquarters and a Frankfurt branch.

Each pod has three IP phones. Two of the phones are internal and the third is a test phone used to simulate outside callers. Cisco IP Communicator is used for phones at the HQ and Branch sites. Each pod has a CUCM Publisher.
