Deploying Unified Contact Center Enterprise

5 Days

Price: $3995

Course Schedule


Deploying Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise (DUCCE) is an instructor-led course presented by training partners to system engineers and customers who will be involved with day-to-day interaction with the Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise (CCE) product using IP IVR as an IVR/VRU solution. This course will give you an understanding of the Unified CCE deployment capabilities, processes, fault tolerance, installation, and performing basic troubleshooting. We will accomplish this by installing the Unified CCE software and introducing Unified CCE troubleshooting tools.

This course is based on CCE version 8.X software, and (together with AUCCE) replaces the previously known IPCCE, UCCE/ICM with IP IVR, ICM PT1, ICM PT2 and ICM Bootcamp courses.  Even if you run a version of CCE prior to 8.X, you will benefit from this course and its content.

If IP IVR doesn’t sound familiar to you, but CVP does, check out our CVP version of this course – DBUCCE.  AUCCE and DUCCE are IP IVR based courses.  ACCE and DBUCCE are CVP based courses.


After completing this course, students will be able to…

  • Demonstrate an overall understanding of the Cisco Unified CCE system, processes, and its environment
  • Install and configure a Cisco Unified CCE system
  • Create routing options using an external SQL database and an Application Gateway
  • Install and configure Cisco Outbound Option
  • Install and utilize Cisco Support Tools, Cisco Analysis Manager, and Cisco Unified Intelligence Center


The primary audience for this course is as follows:

  • Cisco Unified Communications system channel partners and resellers
  • System engineers

The secondary audience for this course is as follows:

  • Customers deploying and maintaining Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise products


To fully benefit from this course, students should have the following prerequisite skills and knowledge:

  • Attended Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise Administration (AUCCE) course
