The course is two days of instructor-led training intended to build on the foundational learning from the required prerequisite course, Deploying Basic Cisco Wireless LANs (WDBWL). This advanced course is designed with the goal of providing learners with the knowledge and skills to successfully plan, install, configure, troubleshoot, monitor, and maintain advanced Cisco Wireless LAN solutions such as QoS, “salt and pepper” mobility, high density deployments, and mesh networks in an enterprise customer environment.
You will be able to:
- Describe the mechanisms and messaging used in a Unified Wireless architecture which allow the client to change AP association, while maintaining the current session and IP addressing.
- Discuss the challenges faced in providing a quality user experience in a high density wireless network deployment scenario.
- Differentiate the operational characteristics of, and implement, a wireless MESH architecture.
