Cisco Collaboration - Level of Effort

Cisco Collaboration - Level of Effort

Cisco Collaboration - Level of Effort

Do anyone have a template or calculation for determine the Level of Effort for the installation and deployment for Cisco Collaboration hardware and software?

RE: Cisco Collaboration - Level of Effort

Can you be more specific? Do you mean the effort to install UCM, Unity and IMP or do you mean something else?

RE: Cisco Collaboration - Level of Effort

yes, the time it would take to install and program

RE: Cisco Collaboration - Level of Effort

Depends on what systems you are talking about. Youre request is far too generic. But any kind of decent deployment is hundreds of hours.

My calculation is based on time per user. I would say for each user you have - allocate 1-1.5 hours. That takes care of installation, configuration, programming, testing, people changing their mind, reprogramming, retesting, etc. Gathering data takes a significant amount of time. The installation per server takes around 2-4 hours depending on what application it is (CCX takes longer, so I'd say about 6-8). The installation is usually the easiest part.

That helps alot, thanks for the feedback
