Using Prime Infrastructure to Manage Wireless Networks (PIMWN)

PIMWN - Using Prime Infrastructure to Manage Wireless Networks is an updated version of the NMENPI and WMNGI courses. PIMWN focuses on using Cisco Prime Infrastructure Release v3.3 to manage Cisco wireless networks.

In this course students will learn:

  • About Cisco Prime Infrastructure dashboards to get a quick view of devices, performance information and various incidents. To perform device management operations such as adding devices, running discovery, managing network inventories, groups and software images, configuring device archives, and auditing configuration changes on devices.
  • How to create maps using Next Generation site maps that was introduced in Cisco Prime Infrastructure Release 3.3.
  • To effectively manage devices by creating composite templates or using predefined templates.
  • How to create a lobby ambassador and configure guest user accounts to provide secure guest access.
  • How to implement the guest access feature set and controller based features such as Bonjour Services and Application Visibility & Control.
  • To implement local profiling and policies on the 2504 wireless LAN controller.
  • To monitor and troubleshoot your network by monitoring devices, interfaces and the wireless network.
  • To create reports, view saved report templates, and run scheduled reports to provide information about system and network health.
