Cisco CCNA wireless certification training

It is difficult to imagine an organization that does not, at present, at least somehow utilize wireless local area network technologies. Otherwise, the devices are used by remote workers at their home or, for example, from an airport, are connected to a corporate network using a local wireless LAN.

Wireless LAN technology is still relatively fresh - only a few over ten years have passed since the first standards. During that time, a few amusements have become a general commodity and wireless is widely used, for example, at home, in offices, and in public places. Despite this, wireless technologies continue to be a tough development project - the most important goal being more efficient, more reliable and secure networks.

The purpose of this course is to introduce to the listener all the essential issues related to the design, construction and maintenance of wireless local area networks in a compact package. In addition to theoretical knowledge, the course builds a controller-based wireless network and analyzes the operation of the theory. The course exercises are done using a graphical user interface.

Target audience: The course is aimed at people whose organization is considering the introduction of a wireless LAN and / or a person for whom this topic is still new.

Objective of the course: The objective of the course is to provide visitors with good basic knowledge and skills on methods, techniques and protocols related to wireless local area networks. During three days, the coaching will go through all the relevant areas of the qualification and will focus on topics beyond theory but also through practical exercises. After the course the participant has sufficient knowledge and skills to complete the CCNA Wireless exam.

Course type: Lectures and laboratory exercises

Course language: All materials and lectures are held in Finnish
