Deploying Cisco Wireless LANs (WDBWL-WDAWL) (DCWL)

This 5-day instructor-led, hands-on course provides learners with the skills and resources required to successfully plan, install, configure, troubleshoot, monitor, and maintain a Cisco Wireless LAN solution in a customer enterprise environment. The complexity of the topics covered build during the course, the first 3 days focus on Wireless Fundamentals such as: 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 the maintenance and troubleshooting of wireless network issues.
The final two days looks at the more challenging real-world scenario's such as client mobility between subnets, high client density and mesh network deployments.
Features released in code 7.6, 8.0 and 8.1 are incorporated in this course.
 
Target Audience
This course is designed for engineers involved in the planning, deployment and management of enterprise WLAN using both autonomous architecture and lightweight access points with controllers.
