CUWN - Cisco Unified Wireless Networking Bootcamp (CUWNBC): Deploying Cisco Wireless LANs Basic and Advanced (WDBWL / WDAWL)

All SLI Scheduled Dates Are Guaranteed to Run!

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 delivery. 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.

Instructor did a great job, from experience this subject can be a bit dry to teach but he was able to keep it very engaging and made it much easier to focus. Student
Excellent presentation skills, subject matter knowledge, and command of the environment. Student
Instructor was outstanding. Knowledgeable, presented well, and class timing was perfect. Student
