WDBWL - Deploying Cisco Basic Wireless LANs v1.2

In this course, you will learn the basics of how to install, configure, operate, and maintain a wireless network, both as an add-on to an existing wireless LAN (WLAN) and as a new Cisco Unified Wireless Networking solution.

This course will build on WLAN terms, concepts, protocols, architecture, and characteristics introduced in the Defining Cisco Wireless LAN Essentials (WLE) e-learning course. In this course you will investigate the components, features, and deployment aspects of the system. You will have the opportunity to reinforce what you learn with hands-on labs. This course focuses on the essential network elements of a WLAN: the access points (APs) and wireless LAN controllers (WLCs).

This course provides high-level information about the optional but recommended network management and services appliance components of a Cisco Unified Wireless Network-the Cisco Prime Infrastructure (PI) and Mobility Services Engine (MSE)-but does not provide hands-on labs and in-depth coverage of these components. The Cisco management platform and MSE are covered in more depth in a separate course: Managing Cisco Wireless Networks with Prime Infrastructure (MWNPI).
