Deploying Basic and Advanced Cisco Wireless LANs Bootcamp (WDBWL-WDAWL)

 

Course Overview

This 5-day instructor-led, hands-on course combines Deploying Basic Cisco Wireless LANs (WDBWL) and Deploying Advanced Cisco Wireless LANs (WDAWL), presenting you with challenging real-world deployments such as client mobility between subnets, high client density deployments, and mesh network deployments. You will be trained on how to make network design decisions about, configure, and troubleshoot WLANs with these challenges. The format of the course allows you and the instructor to explore realistic use cases and best practices around more challenging deployment scenarios. The course is written at software code level 8.1.
