Cisco CCNA Wireless Boot Camp


Duration: 7 days

Cisco Certified Network Associate Wireless (CCNA Wireless) validates associate-level knowledge and skills to configure, implement, and support of wireless LANs, specifically those networks using Cisco equipment. With a CCNA Wireless certification, network professionals can support a basic wireless network on a Cisco WLAN in an SMB to enterprise network. The CCNA Wireless curriculum includes information and practice activities to prepare them for configuring, monitoring, and troubleshooting basic tasks of a Cisco WLAN in SMB and Enterprise networks.

The Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Networking Essentials is a 5-day ILT course, designed to help students prepare for the IUWNE certification, an associate-level certification specializing in the wireless field. The goal of the course is to provide students with information and practice activities to prepare them to help design, install, configure, monitor, and conduct basic troubleshooting tasks of a Cisco WLAN in Enterprise installations.

This course prepares students for Cisco Exam 200-355 Implementing Cisco Wireless Networking Essentials (WIFUND).

• Describe Wireless LAN (WLAN) RF principles (antenna types, RF gain/loss, Effective Isotropic Radiated Power (EIRP), refraction, reflection, and so on)
• Describe networking technologies used in wireless (SSID to WLAN_ID to Interface to VLAN, 802.1q trunking)
• Describe wireless topologies, such as Independent Basic Service Set (IBSS), Basic Service Set (BSS), Extended Service Set (ESS), Point-to-Point, Point-to-Multipoint, Mesh, and bridging)
• Describe 802.11 authentication and encryption methods (Open, Shared, 802.1X, EAP, TKIP, and AES)
• Describe frame types (associated and unassociated, management, control, and data)
• Describe basic RF deployment considerations related to site survey design of data or VoWLAN applications, common RF interference sources such as devices, building material, AP location, and basic RF site survey design related to channel reuse, signal strength, and cell overlap

Install a basic Cisco wireless LAN
• Identify the components of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network architecture (Split MAC, LWAPP, stand-alone AP vs controller-based AP, specific hardware examples)
• Install and configure autonomous access points in the small business environment
• Describe the modes of controller-based AP deployment (local, monitor, HREAP, sniffer, rogue detector, bridge, OEAP, and SE-Connect)
• Describe controller-based AP discovery and association (DHCP, DNS, Master-Controller, Primary-Secondary-Tertiary, and n+1 redundancy)
• Describe roaming (Layer 2 and Layer 3, intra-controller and inter-controller, and mobility list)
• Configure a WLAN controller and access points WLC: ports, interfaces, WLANs, NTP, CLI, and Web UI, CLI wizard, and link aggregation group (LAG) AP: Channel and Power
• Describe Radio Resource Management (RRM) fundamentals including ED-RRM.
