Wireless LAN Advanced (WDAWL)

Overview

This course builds upon the basic deployments course by presenting you with more challenging real-world deployments such as client mobility between subnets, high-client density deployments, and mesh-network deployments. This course allows the instructor and students to share experiences, pitfalls, and best practices around challenging deployment scenarios. The course is written at software code level 7.5. Please be advised that this course does not go into the Cisco Prime Infrastructure (PI). The PI is covered completely in the follow up course, WMNGI - Managing Cisco Wireless LANs v1.2.

Prerequisites
