UCCXD – Deploying Cisco Unified Contact Center Express v6.0

  • Systems integrators who deploy Cisco Unified CCX

  • System engineers, architects, and support staff who:
    • Maintain and configure Finesse supervisor and Finesse agent clientsÿ
    • Write scripts and maintain script integrityÿ
    • Require a fundamental understanding of the issues and solutions related to implementationÿ
    • Maintain the server system and telephony system for the contact center


  • Working knowledge of fundamental terms and concepts of computer networking, including LANs, WANs, and IP switching and routingÿ
  • Basic knowledge of CUCM
  • Basic knowledge of contact center operationsÿ
  • Familiarity with Microsoft desktop applications and SQL database operations

Expected Duration
5 day


In this course, you’ll gain an understanding of Ciscos Unified Contact Center Express (Unified CCX) product and all of its associated client applications and scripting tools. You will learn about all of the Unified CCX components, servers, deployment options, and clients. You will learn how to perform capacity planning, choose the correct product features, and install the product.

Our instructors place major emphasis on the Unified CCX script editing tool, Unified CCX Editor, which allows administrators to script the contact centers caller experience through the system, including queries, recordings, menu input, digit string input, and database operations. You will cover the Cisco Finesse Agent and Supervisor Desktops as well as the Finesse Desktop Administration tool to optimize the call agents desktop display and options, supervisor optimization of the call center, and reporting options and customizations. You will explore Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) and Text-to-Speech (TTS) technologies, Social Miner, and Outbound Dialing technologies and youll examine options for troubleshooting, reporting, and maintaining the system.

Our voice network labs use the latest hardware and software and all of our IP telephony courses provide a simulated public switched telephone network (PSTN).
