This course looks at the fundamentals required in the planning, implementation and operation of a Cisco Wireless Lan network. This course is designed to help provide students with the knowledge and hands on practice required to enable them to design, install, configure, monitor and conduct the basic troubleshooting tasks of a Cisco WLAN in an SMB or Enterprise installations. As this is associate level course the advanced features of the Cisco WLAN networks solutions will not be covered in depth.
