Implementing Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Part 2 (CIPT2)

 

Foundation learning for CIPT2 exam 642-456

 

Chris Olsen

 

Implementing Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Part 2 (CIPT2), is a Cisco®-authorized, self-paced learning tool for CCVP® foundation learning. This book provides you with the knowledge needed to install and configure a Cisco Unified Communications Manager solution in a multisite environment. By reading this book, you will gain a thorough understanding of how to apply a dial plan for a multisite environment, configure survivability for remote sites during WAN failure, implement solutions to reduce bandwidth requirements in the IP WAN, enable Call Admission Control (CAC) and automated alternate routing (AAR), and implement device mobility, extension mobility, Cisco Unified Mobility, and voice security.

 

This book focuses on Cisco Unified CallManager Release 6.0, the call routing and signaling component for the Cisco Unified Communications solution. It also includes H.323 and Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) gateway implementation, the use of a Cisco Unified Border Element, and configuration of Survivable Remote Site Telephony (SRST), different mobility features, and voice security.

 

Whether you are preparing for CCVP certification or simply want to gain a better understanding of deploying Cisco Unified Communications Manager in a multisite environment, you will benefit from the foundation information presented in this book.

 

Implementing Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Part 2 (CIPT2), is part of a recommended learning path from Cisco that includes simulation and hands-on training from authorized Cisco Learning Partners and self-study products from Cisco Press. To find out more about instructor-led training, e-learning, and hands-on instruction offered by authorized Cisco Learning Partners worldwide, please visit www.cisco.com/go/authorizedtraining.

Book News Annotation:

Also appropriate for Cisco IP Telephony Part 2 exam preparation, this guide addresses the challenges in multi-site deployments requiring Unified Communications solutions. Tutorials walk through the steps for configuring Media Gateway Control Protocol and H.323 gateways, and implementing a dial plan, SRST and MGCP fallback, bandwidth management with call admission control, call applications on gateways, and device mobility. The closing chapters explain the fundamental principles of cryptography and the security protocols of IPsec, transport layer security, SRTP, and SIP digest.
