Course Information

Course Description

​This training course is a five-day instructor-led training and includes instructor assisted, hands-on labs. The Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Networking Essentials training class is designed to help you prepare for the CCNA Wireless certification, an associate level certification in the wireless field. The goal of the IUWNE is to provide you with information to prepare you to help design, install, configure, monitor and conduct basic troubleshooting tasks of a Cisco WLAN in small and medium-sized business and enterprise installations. In this course, you'll learn to design, install, configure, monitor, and troubleshoot a Cisco Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) in small and medium-sized business and enterprise installations. You'll cover controller and access point (AP) configuration, and you'll learn to install a mobility express wireless controller and AP. You'll reinforce what you learn during the lecture by:

  • Working with remote labs using real Cisco equipment to convert an autonomous AP to controller-based mode
  • Working with the map editor tool
  • Troubleshooting issues introduced by the instructor
