Course Content

The Cisco® Unified Operations Manager and Service Monitor v1.1 course teaches students how to effectively use the suite of Cisco Unified Communications products, Operations Manager, Service Monitor, and Cisco 1040 Sensors to manage unified communications.

The focus of the course is to provide knowledge and practice of various Operations Manager and Service Monitor functions such as viewing unified communications devices, connectivity, alerts, events; running diagnostic tests; and monitoring applications, devices, and service quality of active call streams. Cisco Unified Operations Manager provides contextual diagnostic tools to facilitate trouble isolation and troubleshooting.

Cisco Unified Service Monitor works together with the Cisco 1040 Sensors to report on service quality by monitoring active call streams. Labs are available to reinforce what is discussed in the lecture.
