Cisco CIPT1 6.0: Implementing and Hardening IP Phones

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.


Adding, updating, and deleting phones are important functions in the day-to-day activities of a Cisco Unified Communications Manager administrator. Cisco Unified Communications Manager provides various tools to accomplish these tasks. This course describes how to implement Cisco Skinny Client Control Protocol (SCCP) phone and third-party session initiation protocol (SIP) phones in Cisco Unified Communications Manager. It also explains how to add phones manually, using autoregistration, and with the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Bulk Administration Tool (BAT). How to harden Cisco IP phones is also covered. This course is one of a series from two SkillSoft learning paths, which cover the objectives for Cisco exam 642-446 CIPT. This exam is one of five required qualifying exams for the CCVP (Cisco Certified Voice Professional) certification.
