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.
This 2-day instructor-led, hands-on course builds upon the basic deployments course by presenting students with more challenging real-world deployments such as client mobility between subnets, high client density deployments, and mesh network deployments. Understanding the challenges you may encounter when configuring and troubleshooting a WLAN will help you make the right network design decicions. 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 7.5.
