FortiWLC – Fortinet Wireless Controller

  • FortiWLC – Fortinet Wireless Controller

    In this series of classes, you will learn how to design, implement, and maintain a channel-layered FortiWLC based wireless network.

    1. Administration (2-day class, 1/2 day lab)
    2. Implementation (3-day class, 1/2 day lab)
    3. Solution Design (optional 2-day class)

    The practical labs provide hands-on experience in configuration, management, and monitoring of the wireless network.

    It is recommended that you take the classes in the order listed above.


    Course Outline:

    • Introduction and radio frequency concepts
    • Monitoring and obtaining network statistics
    • Troubleshooting client connectivity
    • Managing and maintaining the network
    • Monitoring and managing rogue devices
    • Installing and integrating controllers into the network
    • Implementing redundancy
    • Installing and basic installation of FortiWLM.
    • Deploying access points
    • Implementing channel layers and stripes
    • Publishing secure data, voice and guest wireless networks
    • Introduction to and basic installation of FortiConnect
