Call control redundancy and Call Admission Control (CAC) are essential in a multisite Unified Collaboration deployment. This course teaches you how to configure remote site survivability, utilize CAC, and troubleshoot multisite deployment.
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, Configuring Cisco SRST and Enhanced Call Admission Control, you will learn the step-by-step process of configuring remote-site router-based call survivability, implementing a remote dial-plan, and managing WAN bandwidth usage with various call admission control features - in plain terms. First, you will see how to configure SRST (Survivable Remote Site Telephony) for both SCCP and SIP phones on the remote site gateway. Next, you will learn how to configure the dial-plan on the remote gateway, utilizing dial-peers and translation profiles, to guarantee PSTN connectivity at the remote site and configure Call Forward Unregistered to ensure intersite connectivity with the main site. Then, you will explore how to optimize WAN link usage by determining codec selection and ensure call quality by configuring traditional location-based Call Admissions Control, as well as Enhanced Call Admissions Control. Finally, you’ll know how to troubleshoot call connectivity issues using RTMT and the Cisco IOS trace tools. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge needed to configure an SRST redundancy solution, build a remote site dial-plan, manage bandwidth using CAC, and troubleshoot your multisite Cisco Collaboration deployment.

Course Overview Hi everyone. I'm Sean Douglas, and welcome to my course, Configuring Cisco SRST and Enhanced Call Admission Control. 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 an ongoing series, is designed to save you time and help you with configuring survivability, being prepared for the inevitable, how to use Cisco's location-based call admission control and enhance call admission control within your multisite collaboration environment. We want all of your calls to sound good, and that means planning and policy. This course with absolutely help you with both. We're going to give you extensive demonstrations, hands-on step-by- step configuration examples so that you'll be able to design, implement, and maintain a resilient collaboration solution that works, even when the pieces around it might not. There are a lot of different components that work together to provide survivability and functionality, and this course will make sure that you understand them all. By the end of this course, you'll no longer stay up late at night worrying about WAN outages and high bandwidth applications. You'll sleep great knowing that you're prepared and your network is ready to handle the unexpected. We've designed the 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, and Creating Cisco +E164 Dialplans for Multisite Deployments or being at about the CCNA collaboration level or having some experience working with Cisco Unified Communication Manager. I hope you'll join us as we build solutions with the Configuring Cisco SRST and Enhanced Call Admission Control course at Pluralsight.
