Title: Cisco Deploying Basic Wireless LANs WDBWL v1.2; 3 days, Instructor-led
Description: This 3-day instructor-led, hands-on course is designed to give you a firm understanding of the Cisco Unified Wireless Networking for enterprise deployment scenarios. In this course, you will learn the basics of how to install, configure, operate, and maintain a wireless network, both as an add-on to an existing wireless LAN (WLAN) and as a new Cisco Unified Wireless Networking solution. This course will build on top of Wireless LAN terms, concepts, protocols, architecture and Wireless LAN Characteristics introduced in the Wireless LAN Essentials eLearning course. In this course you will investigate the components, features, and deployment aspects of the system. You will have the opportunity to reinforce what you learn with hands-on labs. This course focuses on the essential network elements of a WLAN: the access points (APs) and wireless LAN controllers (WLCs). This course provides high-level information about the optional but recommended network management and services appliance components of a Cisco Unified Wireless Network - the Cisco Prime Infrastructure (PI), and Mobility Services Engine (MSE)but does not provide hands-on labs and in-depth coverage of these components. The Cisco management platform and MSE are covered in more depth in a separate course, Managing Cisco Wireless LANs (WMNGI).
At Course Completion: Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives: Differentiate the characteristics of a unified wireless LAN architecture, and configure and test the controllers, access points, and basic features Differentiate the characteristics of a FlexConnect architecture, configure and deploy a FlexConnect based wireless LAN Perform routine maintenance, network monitoring, and common troubleshooting tasks on the Cisco wireless LAN Describe and perform configuration with Ciscos new Ease of Use wizard, and best practices audit
