Course Content

The WDWL PW (Deploying Cisco Wireless LANs Power Workshop) is a five-day intensive instructor-led course. It covers all that you will need to learn about the WiFi technology and its deployment in a Cisco Unified Wireless solution. The Power Workshop combines the following: Wireless Fundamentals, WDBWL course & WDAWL course all-in-1.
It will take the learner from the basics of WLAN and its underlying elements all the way to in-depth coverage of how to install and configure the functional components of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network Solutions in several deployment models in an enterprise customer network. Learners become familiar with the inter-communication of key system components, interactions between components, software configuration, troubleshooting, monitoring, and debugging. This course also provides the learner a better understanding and appreciation of the complexities involved in efficiently supporting, client mobility, areas of high client density, and the implementation of a MESH network in a customer enterprise environment.
Knowledge is reinforced by hands-on lab exercises all throughout.
