    i thhink you need to run cucm and cuc on a server to get familiar with the menus and capabilities. You can get demo licenses from cisco. You can run it in vmware workstation on your desktop but keep in mind it needs to be an intel platform for cucm or cuc to install. Not AMD.

    I agree with Megatran, you will need to play around a bit to get comfortable with CUCM.

    Get an ESXi server and run a few VM's for:

    CUCM, Unity Connection, and CUPS.

    Aside from that you need:

    1x ISR router like a 2800 series (for CME)

    1x POE switch

    2x Cisco IP Phones

    In my opinion 2600 series are obsolete. GNS3 works just as well and is free. Only buy switches and ISR routers because they can't be emulated.
    My advice to anyone looking to advance their career would be to learn DevOps tools and methodologies. Learn how to write code in languages like Python and JavaScript. Not to be a programmer, but a network automation specialist who can do the job of 10 engineers in 1/3 of the time. Create a GitHub account, download PyCharm, play with Ansible, Chef, or Puppet. Automation isn't the future, it's here today and the landscape is changing dramatically.
