This course is a follow on to the WDBWL course and has been designed to enable network planners and administrators to deploy an efficient wireless LAN (WLAN) advanced enterprise solution. To accomplish this, the course is designed to provide the learner with a better understanding and appreciation of the complexities involved in efficiently supporting, client mobility,network efficiency, areas of high client density, high availability, advanced guest networking, and IPv6 support.

Features released in code 7.6, 8.0 and 8.1 are incorporated in this course.


After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Differentiate the characteristics of a unified wireless LAN architecture and configure and test the controllers, access points and basic features
  • Describe the procedures to configure Layer 2 and Layer 3 roaming
  • Describe the procedure to configure QoS on the network to optimize audio and video flows
  • Describe the process to configure Cisco Unified Wireless using IPv6
  • Perform routine maintenance, network monitoring, and common troubleshooting tasks on the Cisco wireless LAN

Target Audience

This course is designed for engineers responsible for the planning, deployment and management of the advanced functions of an enterprise WLAN using lightweight access points with controllers.
