Before You Begin
You should understand how to implement Cisco Unified Communications. For more information, see Cisco Unified Communications Implementation.
Before you begin installing components, you should have a completed implementation plan from the detailed design. Use the equipment list and site specification from the detailed design to do the following:
•Order and stage equipment
•Perform detailed site survey
•Create site-specific installation guidelines
Your implementation plan should include:
•Network maps and topology diagrams
•Installation and commissioning tests
•Site survey results
•List of all devices to be implemented
•Test and turn-up plan
When You Are Done
All components are installed and ready to configure.
Major Tasks in This Process
•Install and Configure System Components
•Conduct User Acceptance Test
•Preparing Your Network for Troubleshooting and Recovery
