WDAWL - Deploying Advanced Cisco Wireless LANs v1.2 (WDAWL)

The Deploying Advanced Cisco Wireless LANs (WDAWL) 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 an introduction to mesh network concepts. Students will be able to make network design decisions about, configure, and troubleshoot WLANs that encounter these challenges. The course is updated through Wireless LAN Controller and AP code release 8.1, which includes new in-demand features such as 802.11ac design awareness, iBeaconing, Apple 802.11v integration, AVC enhancements, FlexConnect enhancements, ease-of-use enhancements, as well as many more customer-requested enhancements.

This course’s student kit material is in a digital format (e-kit), which is accessed from the Cisco Learning Network Space. A CCO ID is required to log in. Remote Lab Guides are emailed to you in PDF format. The PDF version will be completely printable. It is recommended that you print your remote lab guide before class begins.
