Description

In today’s fast-paced world, the ability to communicate using real-time IP voice and video technology is a business necessity. In this course, Creating a Cisco +E164 Dial Plan for Multisite Deployments, you will learn the step by step process of configuring the +E.164 global dial plan, in plain terms. First, you will learn what goes into creating a multisite globalized +E164 dial plan, including normalization and localization at both domestic and international sites. Next, you will see how to simplify your multisite dial plan, so that users will be able to dial any destination using a single +E164 format that allows their call to be sent to any gateway, local or international, without having to change their current dialing behavior. Finally, you will explore how to configure Tail End Hop Off (TEHO) and toll bypass within your CUCM cluster, and between clusters, as well as troubleshoot a variety of multisite dialplan issues using the step by step method of examining the route plan report and using Cisco’s Dial Number Analyzer. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge needed to configure and manage a multisite +E164 globalized dial plan using Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Sean Douglas, and welcome to my course, Creating a Cisco +E. 164 Dial Plan for Multisite Deployments. I've been a Cisco engineer and instructor for nearly two decades and in that time I've taught thousands of adults IP networking, voice and video collaboration, and how to make their Cisco technology work for them. This course, which is part of a series, is designed to make sure that you understand exactly what the Global +E. 164 Dial Plan is, how to configure it, and how to troubleshoot it. This course will absolutely give you real-world solutions. We're going to normalize, localize, and globalize and we'll do it in a way that's easy to understand-ize. We're going to use extensive demonstrations, hands-on step-by-step configuration examples so that you'll be able to design, implement, and maintain your own multisite dial plan. There are a lot of different parts and pieces that work together within the globalized dial plan. In this course we'll make sure that you understand them all. By the end of this course you'll have an entirely different view of your existing dial plan. You'll be able to create and administer a global multisite dial plan that simplifies calling for end users, utilizes all of your trunks and gateways and is resilient and efficient. We've designed this course to have extensive hands-on examples so that you'll be able to reference our step-by-step demonstrations in your day-to-day career. Before beginning this course you should have a basic understanding of Cisco Unified Communication Manager either by having watched the previous courses, Dial Plan for Cisco Collaboration, Building PSTN Gateways, SIP trunks and cubes, Basic Call Operation and components for Cisco collaboration, or being at about the CCNA collaboration level or have some experience working with Cisco Unified Communication Manager. I hope you'll join us as we build solutions with the Creating a Cisco +E. 164 Dial Plan for Multisite Deployments course, at Pluralsight.
