Scenario 1: Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning 9.5
This demonstration scenario illustrates how Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning consolidates all of the existing
communication services into one easy to manage tool. When deploying Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning all of the

Sync. For new deployments, Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning can easily deploy communication services to a new site
using batch provisioning. Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning also offers time saving self-service options for end users
called End User Self-Care.
