WMNGI - Managing Cisco Wireless LANs (WMNGI)

All SLI Scheduled Dates Are Guaranteed to Run!

The WMNGI course is designed to prepare students to use the Cisco Unified Wireless Network management products and applications to configure, administer, manage, troubleshoot, and optimize the network. This instructor-led course offers in-depth hands-on labs. This course provided hands-on labs which over controller firmware release 7.5 MR1 as well as Cisco Prime Infrastructure software release 1.4.

This course begins with a high-level overview of the Cisco Prime Infrastructure (PI) product line, including product functions, components, capabilities, and features. Students will learn where to locate installation procedures for both the access point (AP) and their associated Wireless LAN Controllers (WLCs) and properly install the CUWN hardware appropriate to site and use requirements. Students will look at ways to administer CUWN, 802.11 security policies, and QoS appropriately to protect and optimize performance on the wireless network. Students will configure and implement key PI security features to mitigate WLAN security threats. Students will conclude training by learning how to utilize recommended troubleshooting methodology and the various tools available to gather and assess system data to isolate equipment failures and security threats.
