Cisco Wireless Network Fundamentals  |    A 5 day   hands on   training course

Cisco Wireless Network course description

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.

What will you learn
  • Implement a Centralized wireless access network using AireOS or IOS-XE wireless LAN Controllers.
  • Implement a Converged wireless access network using IOS-XE converged access switches and wireless LAN controllers.
  • Implement small and remote access wireless networks using FlexConnect, Autonomous or Cloud architectures.
  • Perform basic WLAN maintenance and troubleshooting.
