Unified Contact Center Express 11.6 - Configuration Lab

30 Launches
Solution Overview
Cisco Unified Contact Center Express (UCCX) is designed for mid-market companies or enterprise branch offices with support for up to 400 agents. UCCX supports agent-based services in the form of inbound/outbound voice, email, web chat and customer interaction management in an easy to install and configure package.

Learn the basic concepts of the system and configure a working system in this 4-hour hands-on lab exercise.  Once the lab is configured, the student may use the sandbox for further experimentation and study, which they would not be able to do in a production environment.

This on-demand lab is for anyone who installs, configures, or maintains Cisco Contact Center Express.
