Deploying Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise (DUCCE) is a 5-day instructor-led course that helps prepare learners to deploy the Unified CCE v10.0 solution including installation, deploying HA and using troubleshooting tools to identify issues with inbound and outbound Contact Center functionality. This course is intended for those installing the Unified CCE solution, or those providing Level 3 solution support. Students will learn enough about CCE scripting in this course to ensure system functionality only. Additional CCE scripting information and lab exercises are provided in AUCCE1 & AUCCE2.

To participate in the hands-on labs in this class, you need to bring a laptop computer with the following:

  • We recommend using at least a Pentium 4 or better and 1 GB of RAM or more.
  • We recommend running Windows XP Professional SP3 or greater (Vista & Windows 7/8).
    Mac & Linux machines are also supported.
  • Browser Requirements: Internet Explorer 10 or greater or Mozilla Firefox. (Safari and Mozilla Firefox for Mac OSX)
  • All students are required to have administrator rights to their PCs and cannot be logged in to a domain using any Group Policies that will limit their machine's capabilities.
  • If you do not have administrator rights to your PC, you at least need permissions to download, install, and run Cisco Any Connect Client.
  • If you are participating in a WebEx event, it is highly recommended to take this class at a location that has bandwidth speeds at a minimum of 1 Mbps bandwidth speeds.

If you have any questions or issues with meeting the recommended requirements, please contact us at rlt@skyline-ats.com to discuss.


Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Identify the basic components and operations of the Unified CCE solution.
  • Use the available UCCE tools to complete a basic UCCE system installation.
  • Discuss the installation and configuration steps required to support agent functionality in a UCCE deployment.
  • Install a basic CCE VXML Solution.
  • Install, configure and run a CCE Outbound Option Campaign.
