Conducting Cisco Unified Wireless Site Survey Version 2.0 (CUWSS)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline
 

The CUWSS Version 2.0 course update offers a new perspective on wireless site surveys. You will learn how to conduct a wireless side survey from beginning to end, from customer first contact to post-deployment reports. You will learn how to conduct walk-throughs, identify difficult areas and optimize the survey process to provide a better AP-to-coverage ratio. You will also learn how to survey for 802.11n coverage, and use test tools to evaluate the performances of a wireless network.
