Cisco Deploying Basic Wireless LANs v1.2 - (WDBWL) Course Description

Duration: 3.00 days (24 hours)

Cisco Career Guide

Cisco Deploying Basic Wireless LANs 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).
