Foundation Learning for the CCNP Voice CIPT1 642-447 exam

Implementing Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Part 1 (CIPT1), Second Edition is a Cisco®-authorized, self-paced learning tool for CCNP Voice® foundation learning. This book provides the knowledge necessary to implement a Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM) solution at a single-site environment. By reading this book, you will learn how to perform post-installation tasks, configure CUCM, implement Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) and H.323 gateways, and build dial plans to place On-Net and Off-Net phone calls. You will also implement media resources, IP Phone Services, Cisco Unified Communications Manager native presence, and Cisco Unified Mobility.

This book focuses primarily on CUCM version 8.x, which is the call routing and signaling component for the Cisco Unified Communications solution. This book has been fully updated with new coverage of CUCM phone services, Cisco Unified Manager Assistant, Cisco Unified Mobility, and H.323 gateways.

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