Deploying Basic Cisco Wireless LANs (WDBWL) course is designed to give students a firm understanding of the Cisco Unified Wireless Networking (CUWN) for enterprise deployment scenarios. This course provides basic instructions on installing, configuring, operating, and maintaining a wireless network, both as an add-on to an existing wireless LAN (WLAN) and as a new CUWN solution.
The Deploying Basic Cisco Wireless LANs course builds on top of wireless LAN terms, concepts, protocols, architecture and WLAN characteristics introduced in the Defining Cisco Wireless LAN Essentials (WLE) eLearning course. In addition, 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 wireless 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.
After completing the Deploying Basic Cisco Wireless LANs course you should be able to:
- 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 Cisco’s new Ease of Use wizard, and best practices audit.
