Cisco Unified Wireless Networking Boot Camp

Alert Me


Cisco Unified Wireless Networking Bootcamp (CUWNBC) combines WDBWL (Deploying Basic Cisco Wireless LANs) and WDAWL (Deploying Advanced Cisco Wireless LANs) into a cohesive five day instructor-led course. CUWNBC presents students with challenging real-world deployments such as client mobility between subnets, high client density deployments, and mesh network deployments. Students will be trained on how to make network design decisions about, configure, and troubleshoot WLANs with these challenges. The format of the course allows students 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. WDBWL (Deploying Basic Cisco Wireless LANs) is the first 3 days of training and WDAWL (Deploying Advanced Cisco Wireless LANs) is the last two days of class.

Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:

  • Successfully plan, install, configure, troubleshoot, monitor and maintain basic Cisco Wireless LAN solutions in a customer enterprise environment
  • Configure autonomous, unified, and FlexConnect architectures
  • Configure all base feature sets, including wireless security
  • Administer the WLAN network
  • Maintain and troubleshoot basic wireless networks
  • Describe the steps involved in client mobility at layer 2 and the differences involved in client mobility at layer 3
  • Discuss the challenges faced in providing a quality user experience in a high density wireless network deployment scenario
  • Differentiate the operational characteristics of, and implement, a wireless MESH architecture
