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.

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, Building a Cisco SIP URI-based Dial Plan with ILS, SME, and Unified Mobility, you'll learn the step by step process of configuring a dynamic SIP-based, in plain terms. First, you'll learn how to configure a variety of Cisco Mobility including Device, Extension, and Unified Mobility. Next, you'll see how to substantially simplify your multisite dial plan so that users will be able to dial any user and directory number extension using a SIP URI address, essentially an email address, both from within the cluster and then throughout the entire organization. Then, you’ll explore how to configure Call Control Discovery to dynamically share the dial plan with a lot of other clusters. Finally, you’ll discover how to troubleshoot a variety of common “real world” configuration issues that can come up when building the features covered in this course. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge needed to configure and manage a multisite SIP-based URI dial plan.

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, 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.

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, Building a Cisco VCS Control Dial Plan and Expressway Remote Access Solution, you will learn the step by step process of registering SIP endpoints using a TelePresence VCS Control solution, as well as learn how to configure VCS Expressway to provide firewall traversal and secure remote access that doesn’t require a VPN. First, you will learn how to do the initial configuration of a Cisco VCS Control server and use TelePresence Management Server (TMS) to register users and SIP endpoints. Next, you will see how to configure Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco VCS Control to communicate using SIP trunks, and configure Cisco VCS Expressway to provide edge services such as firewall traversal, business to business communications, and secure remote access. Then, you will explore how to configure DNS servers to support Jabber registration through the corporate firewall using Expressway-Edge and Core servers.
