Cisco Contact Center Enterprise Advanced Administration - CCEAA Course Outline

(3 Days )


Cisco Contact Center Enterprise Advanced Administration (CCEAA) is a 3-day instructor-led course developed by Sunset Learning Institute intended for system engineers and customers who will be deploying and administering advanced Packaged Contact Center Enterprise functionality.

Audience Profile

  • Deployment engineer
  • Sales engineer


The knowledge and skills that a learner should have before attending this course are as follows:

  • Basic knowledge of networking (Windows A/D, SQL) and components (servers, routers, switch) is helpful but not required.
  • Working knowledge of Unified Communications Manager and voice gateways.
  • Basic understanding of Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise architecture and operation.

The following Cisco learning offerings may help students meet these prerequisites:

  • Cisco CLFNDU
  • Cisco CLCOR
  • Cisco CCEF
  • Cisco CCEA

At Course Completion

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

  • Describe the components, protocols, and call flow of PCCE by referencing the discovery platform to prepare for further scripting and configuration activities.
  • Run the CCE Bulk Import utility using the CCE Web Administration tool to develop a base line CCE configuration
  • Configure an advanced VXML application implementing DB lookup functionality and digit collection using Call Studio and CCE Scripting tools in order to present call data collected from the caller to the Agent desktop.
  • Provision CCE to support CUCM calls to the Contact Center using UCM and CCE configuration tools. This will enable CCE Route Requests from CUCM to support contacts initiated from a CUCM managed device (Gateways, Phones, Line Side IVR
  • Ports). This may be to enable non-Contact Center calls and calls handled by Agents whether existing or new.
  • Access and deploy custom gadgets to the Finesse desktop using the CCE Web Administration tool to further enhance functionality of the Finesse Agent Desktop.
  • Successfully deploy Mobile Agent in a CCE Environment.
  • Successfully deploy Post Call Survey in a CCE Environment.
