Implementing Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Part 2 (CIPT2) v8.0

Course Specifications

Exam number: 642-457
Course length: 5 days

Course Description

Implementing Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Part 2 (CIPT2) v8.0 prepares you for implementing a Cisco Unified Communications solution in a multisite environment. It covers globalized call routing, Cisco Service Advertisement Framework (SAF) and Call Control Discovery (CCD), tail-end hop-off (TEHO), Cisco Unified Cisco Learning PartnerSurvivable Remote Site Telephony (SRST), and mobility features such as Device Mobility and Cisco Extension Mobility. You will apply a dial plan for a multisite environment including TEHO, configure survivability for remote sites during WAN failure, and implement solutions to reduce bandwidth requirements in the IP WAN. You will also enable Call Admission Control (CAC) including Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Preconditions and automated alternate routing (AAR).
