Description

A solid network infrastructure is required to build a successful Cisco Unified Communications and Collaboration system in an enterprise environment. In this course, Cisco Collaboration Core: Infrastructure and Design, you are going to examine the various deployment models, network protocols, SIP signaling, endpoint deployments, user privileges, and LDAP implementation.

First, you will learn about the components that make up the Cisco Collaboration solution, high availability deployment models, servers, routers, and how to use system sizing tools to determine your hardware requirements. Next, you will explore how to configure the most relevant network protocols used in collaboration deployments, including Network Time Protocol (NTP), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), Domain Name Service (DNS), Trivial File Transport Protocol (TFTP), Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP), and Link Layer Discovery Protocol – Media Endpoint Devices (LLDP-MED).

Next, you will also learn about what SIP does, how SIP works, how to examine SIP messages when troubleshooting, and boot and registration communication between a Cisco IP phone and Cisco Unified Communications Manager. This is essential for understanding normal voice network operations and for troubleshooting purposes.

Finally, you will discover how to configure Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM) to import and synchronize user accounts from an Active Directory using Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), how to configure CUCM for LDAP authentication, which allows the LDAP system to control the passwords of the user's accounts, as well as how to troubleshoot and avoid the most common mistakes when implementing CUCM with an LDAP system.

When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge needed to plan a Cisco Collaborations deployment, troubleshoot SIP messaging, deploy customized endpoints, and import users with an LDAP synchronization, as well as simplify password management with LDAP authentication.

Description

Today’s collaboration administrators need to be able to configure their Cisco Unified Communications Manager clusters to communicate with a variety of telephony services. In this course, Cisco Collaboration Core: Implementing Cisco IOS Gateway and Media Resources, you are going to see how to deploy gateways, trunks, and session border controllers, also known as CUBEs, as well as provide your customers with media resources. First, you will learn how to configure both H.323 and SIP trunks to communicate with remote systems. Next, you will discover how to deploy Cisco routers to support traditional telephony ISDN circuits and interface with CUCM using both VoIP and POTS dial peers. You will also explore the step-by-step process of configuring a Cisco SIP session border controller to connect to CUCM and an IP telephony service provider, and see how to implement more advanced commands to help you avoid potential problems while increasing reliability and efficiency. You will also learn to troubleshoot more effectively by demonstrating how to use traces and tools to collect and examine SIP messages. Finally, you will dig into how to provide your endpoints with a variety of media resources using Cisco Unified Communications Manager as well as Cisco routers and CUBEs. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge needed to efficiently deploy trunks, configure a CUBE, provide media resources, and be well on your way to passing the Cisco Collaboration Core exam.

Description

Today’s collaboration administrators need to be able to deploy efficient, reliable, predictable dial plans. In this course, Cisco Collaboration Core: Implementing Call Control, you are going to see how to configure a scalable dial plan and provide access to voicemail. First, you will learn how to configure calling search spaces and partitions to create a dial plan that works exactly as intended. Next, you will explore how to modify calling and called numbers for both incoming and outgoing calls. Then, you will also see how to prevent toll fraud on Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco IOS gateways and how to interpret and deploy a +E164 globalized dial plan that allows users to be able to dial consistently, regardless of their location. This simplifies call management in multi-site and multinational deployments. Finally, you will discover how to connect Cisco Unified Communications Manager to Cisco Unity Connection using both SCCP and SIP protocols to support enterprise voicemail. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge needed to configure your dial plan, implement globalized call routing, and be well on your way to passing the Cisco Collaboration Core exam.
