Build a IPCC lab to learn

Unanswered Question
Jul 23rd, 2008

have a friend who likes to build a small lab to learn on IPCC express etc all HW and SW.

I would appreciate any help in finding the BOM and approximate cost, how to get it etc.

New or used - what ever gets him the tools to learn CM, IPCC etc.

Thanks in advance.


I have this problem too.

Hi Baseer,

If you have the softwares (CCM and IPCC), you can install everything on VMWares. That is the best solution for a lab I think.

With best regards,

I think there is an old Cisco document from the 5.0 days which explains how to build a lab. Google for it and if you don't find it I can check my backups to see if I have it somewhere.

Hi Chawki,

Where can i get the IPCCx 5.O image / evalaution version to install on VMware image for lab/ study

Hi Ranjan,

UCCX 5.0 can not be downloaded and must be ordered at Cisco. If you want to use it for demo purposes, you can buy it for around 100 euros if you are a Cisco partner and if I am not mistaking.

There is no evaluation version though.
