Cisco CIPT1 6.0: Single-Site On-Net Calling

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


Several components of the Cisco Unified Communications architecture are employed when enabling a Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster for on-net calls. The process involves providing the IP network infrastructure, selecting endpoints such as Cisco IP phones, and integrating them into the network. This course describes the endpoints that are supported by Cisco Unified Communications Manager, including their characteristics, protocol, and feature support. The course also reviews the unique features of Cisco IP phones, and how Cisco Catalyst switches provide power to endpoints and support VLAN separation for voice and data traffic. 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.

Target Audience

The primary audience for this learning path is network designers, network administrators, network engineers, network managers, and systems engineers; individuals seeking the Implementing Cisco Unified Communications IP Telephony certification and those individuals targeting the Cisco Certified Voice Professional (CCVP) certification.


Working knowledge of fundamental concepts of computer networking including LANs, WANs, and IP switching and routing; ability to configure and operate Cisco routers and switches and to enable VLANs and DHCP; fundamental knowledge of converged voice and data networks; working knowledge of MGCP and its implementation on Cisco IOS gateways; Cisco CCNA, Building Cisco Multilayer Switched Networks (BCMSN) v3.0, and Cisco Voice Over IP (CVOICE) v6.0.

Expected Duration

90 min.
