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.
