Deploying Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise (DUCCE) v2.0 enhanced with UCCE 11.6 Labs is a 5-day instructor-led course presented by training partners. This course allows learners to deploy the Unified CCE v11.6 solution including installation, deploying HA and using troubleshooting tools to identify issues with inbound and outbound Contact Center functionality. This course is intended for those installing the Unified CCE solution, or those providing Level 3 solution support. This course also serves as a foundation for the two corresponding UCCE Administration courses, but is not a prerequisite. Students will learn enough about CCE scripting in this course to ensure system functionality only. A separate course exists for advanced scripting.
