The typical student attending this course will be those with little or no experience of Communications Server 1000 who will be involved in Installation, Maintenance or complex administration of a CS1000 Release 7.5 system. The course content will also cover the areas relevant to the Avaya certification.
The Release 7.5 Boot Camp is a 10 day intensive course created to take students with basic knowledge of IP networking and Telephony through the Installation and Commissioning phases of a CS1000 System implementation. The course will cover installation and configuration of a Standard Availability system as well as a CoRes system. It will also cover the configuration of common features on the system as well as Routes, Trunks and associated dial plans to enable calls to external systems. Students will also configure a Survivable Media Gateway and test its redundant mode. Key areas: Architecture Overview, Linux Installation & Security Configuration, Application Deployment, Accessing the Overlays & basic system configuration, UCM, Element Manager, Telephone administration, Routing & Dial plans
The course should be run along the guidelines shown below. Week 1 Day 1 System Overview & Architecture System Components Linux Base Installation Day 2 Security Configuration UCM System Management Fundamentals Application Software Deployment (SA Call server) Call Server CLI Interface Basic Call server Configuration Day 3 Element Manager Bandwidth Zones Adding a Media Gateway Joining VxWorks Devices to UCM Domain Day 4 IP Telephony Node Set Configuration UCM Security Linux CLI Day 5 Linux Patching Call Server Patching Routes & Trunks IP Virtual Trunks Network Routing Service Week 2 Day 6 System Rebuild Exercise (CoRes Call Server) Day 7 Customer Administration Telephone Administration List Manager Subscriber manager Day 8 Access restriction Dial Plan Implementations PRI Configuration Corporate Directory Day 9 IP Phone Features UCM Deployment backup and sysbackup System Redundancy Survivable Media Gateway Day 10 System Restore System Diagnostics Final Exercise Students will build the systems from scratch at least twice during the course to ensure they are familiar with the procedures. In addition they will configure sets to suit various criteria to ensure their confidence in this area. The course will require the use of Rack B for the duration of the course. Week 1 CPPM card configured as Standard Availability Call Server (VxWorks) Week 2 CPPM card configures as CoRes Call Server (Linux).
By the end of the course the student will be able to:- Identify the primary components of a CS1K system and outline their functionality Install the Linux Base software Configure the UCM security settings Deploy Applications and Linux to servers from deployment manager. Install a VXWorks call server Access the Call Server Overlays (Linux & VxWorks) and configure basic parameters Create the IP telephony Node and Media Gateways Configure Phone Sets via the CLI and Element Manager Configure IP Virtual Trunks & PRI links Understand and create basic routes and dialling plans Discuss the options for redundancy in a CS1000 configuration Configure a Survivable Media Gateway to a CS1000 Main Office Carry out routine maintenance tasks e.g. Backup UCM & Call server , change IP set firmware. Create subscribers and sets using Subscriber Manager Upgrade a Release 6 system to Release 7.5
