About this Course

Administering Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise Part 1 (AUCCE Part 1) is a 5 day instructor-led course intended for system engineers and customers who will be involved with day 2 support of a UCCE solution deployed in a CVP comprehensive environment. 
AUCCE Part 1 course gives the learner an understanding of the requirements, resources and tools needed to perform routine adds, moves and changes in the inbound/outbound UCCE environment. This course is intended for those administering the solution, or who may be responsible for Level 1-2 support of the solution.  This course also serves as a good stepping-stone for the corresponding Administering Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise Part 2 (AUCCE Part 2) course, and should be considered as a prerequisite before taking Part 2.  This course is also a good companion course to the DUCCE course, which covers more detail on the installation/maintenance of the UCCE solution.  

The overall goal of this course is to build an effective administrator of the solution by exposing the technical requirements of the solution and utilizing the solution tools for effective operation.  The learner will be exposed to CCE (ICM) and VXML scripting in this course to ensure basic competence with the solution.  For advanced scripting topics, refer to the AUCCE Part 2 or the CVPD course.
If you are using an earlier version of UCCE, you will benefit from these trainings.  Although we use 10.x in the classes, skills taught will be equivalent and still of value to you. 


Audience Profile

The primary audience for this course is as follows: 

  • Cisco Unified Communications system channel partners and resellers responsible for the Sales, Implementation or Support of a UCCE solution 
  • Day 1 and Day 2 support personnel responsible for the daily add/move/change of the UCCE environment 
The secondary audience for this course is as follows: 
  • Managers, team-leads, business liaison personnel or anyone who needs to be remotely involved in the UCCE solution and have a better overall understanding of its function.

At Course Completion

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

  • Demonstrate an overall understanding of the Cisco Unified CCE v10.x solution from a component functional level.
  • Demonstrate basic proficiency with add/move/change of the ACD/PBX (agent/skill) environment of UCCE.
  • Demonstrate basic proficiency with add/move/change of the IVR (prompt/collect/queue) environment of UCCE including both MicroApp and VXML solution scripting (ICM Scripting and Call Studio scripting).
  • Configure a Supervisor to enable CUIC Reporting functionality including running stock reports and creating dashboards.


The knowledge and skills that a learner should have before attending this course are as follows: 

  • Basic knowledge of networking (Windows A/D, SQL) and components (servers, routers, switch) is helpful but not required
  • Working knowledge of a Windows computer including a mouse and the simultaneous use of the Alt-Tab keys is required.
  • Working knowledge of Unified Communications Manager and Voice Gateways would be really helpful.  Take the VFCC course, by example
  • A basic understanding of contact center operations
