UCCE-A v11.5 - Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise Administration

This is a 5-day instructor-led course that helps prepare learners to administer the Cisco Unified CCE v11.5 solution.

Course Outline

Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise Administration (UCCE-A) is a 5-day instructor-led course that helps prepare learners to administer the Cisco Unified CCE v11.5 solution. This course will provide the student with the basic knowledge to understand the Cisco Unified CCE deployment solution, requirements for deployment, and how to install and configure all major Cisco Unified CCE components. As a part of deployment activities, the student will understand how to install and integrate Intelligent Contact Manager (ICM) with Active Directory, how to install and integrate Cisco Unified CVP components using an IOS-based voice browser and Cisco Virtualized Voice Browser (Cisco VVB), how to install and integrate Cisco Finesse, how to install and integrate Cisco Unified Intelligence Center with Active Directory and associated Data Sources for reporting purposes, and how to install and configure Agent- and IVR-based Outbound Option dialing campaigns. And finally, the student will learn how to setup and use troubleshooting tools including RTMT, System CLI, Diagnostic Framework, and ICM command-line utilities to find status information and log files, and to track a call from the point of entry to the agent desktop. 


Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Understand the Cisco Unified CCE solution, architecture, solution options, integrated features, and call flow options.
  • Understand basic principles and configuration requirements for ACD activity in Cisco Unified CM, Cisco Unified CVP, ICM, and how to access and use the Cisco Finesse Agent Desktop.
  • Understand requirements and configurations to implement IVR activity in Cisco Unified CVP.
  • Understand and use administrative features and functions of ICM and implement more complex routing to include Precision Routing, routing from Cisco Unified Communications Manager and routing in a ring-no-answer condition.
  • Understand basic concepts and terms to access, view, modify reports and use other reporting functions provided by Cisco Unified Intelligence Center.
