CVPD 7.0 teaches each student to use the CVP Studio graphical tool to build self-service IVR applications and to run and maintain them on the CVP VXML Server. This course also introduces the student to the other servers that may be part of their CVP solution.
Hands-on practice includes programming labs and building applications that incorporate every element of CVP Studio into a comprehensive full-featured application. Students also learn how to extend Studio using pre-written Java-based code
Each student has his/her own development environment that includes the Cisco IOS voice gateway, speech recognition, text-to-speech, CVP Studio and VXML Server, and a soft-phone to place calls.
