This is a two day instructor-led course, students will  Install, Configure, and Implement Cisco Emergency Responder (Cisco ER). Student will also integrate emergency communication system with Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Students will learn how Cisco ER automatically notifies and routes calls to the local public safety answering point (PSAP) operator. Students will configure emergency response locations (ERLs) and emergency location identification numbers (ELINs) in CER to properly route enhanced 911 (E911) calls. You will also examine CER disaster recovery and user management.
