Installing and Configuring Cisco Cube/Gateways (ICCC-CT)

In this 3 Day Cisco Course, students will learn how to deploy Voice Gateways/CUBE and setup Cisco Unified Communication Manager (CUCM) to deploy SIP Trunking. The course starts out with an overview of Cisco gateways and their uses. Next, students learn about MGCP and SIP and how to implement each protocol. Students will then learn how to use Cisco CUBE to connect CUCM, Gateways and Service Providers together. This course details how to connect a Cisco environment to a Service Provider using a Cisco CUBE.
