Deploying Basic and Advanced Cisco Wireless LANs Bootcamp (WDBWL-WDAWL)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline

Course Overview

This 5-day instructor-led, hands-on course combines Deploying Basic Cisco Wireless LANs (WDBWL) and Deploying Advanced Cisco Wireless LANs (WDAWL).

It brings you the skills and resources required to successfully plan, install, configure, troubleshoot, monitor, and maintain basic Cisco Wireless LAN solutions in a customer enterprise environment. Topics include pre-deployment planning considerations, configuration of autonomous, unified, and FlexConnect architectures, configuration of all base features, including wireless security, the administration of the WLAN network, and maintenance and troubleshooting wireless network issues. The Advanced section focuses on more challenging real-world deployments such as client mobility between subnets, high client density deployments, and mesh network deployments. You will be trained on how to make network design decisions about, configure, and troubleshoot WLANs with these challenges. The format of the course allows you and the instructor to explore realistic use cases and best practices around more challenging deployment scenarios.

This course is written at software code 8.1.
