Cisco CCNA Wireless Boot Camp

Description

Cisco Certified Network Associate Wireless (CCNA Wireless) validates associate-level knowledge and skills to configure, implement and support of wireless LANs, specifically those networks using Cisco equipment. With a CCNA Wireless certification, network professionals can support a basic wireless network on a Cisco WLAN in a SMB to enterprise network. The CCNA Wireless curriculum includes information and practice activities to prepare them for configuring, monitoring and troubleshooting basic tasks of a Cisco WLAN in SMB and Enterprise networks.

The Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Networking Essentials is a 5 day ILT course, designed to help students prepare for the IUWNE certification, an associate level certification specializing in the wireless field. The goal of the course is to provide students with information and practice activities to prepare them to help design, install, configure, monitor and conduct basic troubleshooting tasks of a Cisco WLAN in Enterprise installations.

This course prepares students for Cisco Exam 200-355 Implementing Cisco Wireless Networking Essentials (WIFUND).

• Describe wireless topologies
• Describe 802.11 authentication and encryption methods
• Describe frame types Install a basic Cisco wireless LAN

Prerequisites

Any valid Cisco CCENT, CCNA Routing and Switching or any CCIE certification can act as a prerequisite.

Curriculum

Describe WLAN fundamentals

• Describe frame types (associated and unassociated, management, control, and data)
• Describe basic RF deployment considerations related to site survey design of data or VoWLAN applications, common RF interference sources such as devices, building material, AP location, and basic RF site survey design related to channel reuse, signal strength, and cell overlap

Install a basic Cisco wireless LAN
• Identify the components of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network architecture (Split MAC, LWAPP, stand-alone AP vs controller-based AP, specific hardware examples)
• Install and configure autonomous access points in the small business environment
• Describe the modes of controller-based AP deployment (local, monitor, HREAP, sniffer, rogue detector, bridge, OEAP, and SE-Connect)
• Describe controller-based AP discovery and association (DHCP, DNS, Master-Controller, Primary-Secondary-Tertiary, and n+1 redundancy)
• Describe roaming (Layer 2 and Layer 3, intra-controller and inter-controller, and mobility list)
• Configure a WLAN controller and access points WLC: ports, interfaces, WLANs, NTP, CLI and Web UI, CLI wizard, and link aggregation group (LAG) AP: Channel and Power
• Describe Radio Resource Management (RRM) fundamentals including ED-RRM.
• Verify basic wireless network operation

Install Wireless Clients
• Describe client WLAN configuration requirements, such as Service Set Identifier (SSID), security selection, and authentication
• Identify basic configuration of common wireless supplicants (Macintosh, Intel Wireless Pro, Windows, iOS, and Android)
• Describe basic AnyConnect 3.0 or above wireless configuration parameters
• Identify capabilities available in CCX versions 1 through 5

Implement basic WLAN Security
• Describe the general framework of wireless security and security components (authentication, encryption, MFP, IPS)
• Describe and configure authentication methods (Guest, PSK, 802.1X, WPA/WPA2 with EAP- TLS, EAP-FAST, PEAP, LEAP)
• Describe and configure encryption methods (WPA/WPA2 with TKIP, AES)
• Describe and configure the different sources of authentication (PSK, EAP-local or -external, Radius)

Operate basic WCS
• Identify key functions of Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS) and Navigator (versions and licensing)
• Navigate WCS interface
• Configure controllers and access points (APs) (using the Configuration tab not templates)
• Use preconfigured maps in the WCS (adding/relocating/removing access points, turn on/off heat maps, view client location, and view CleanAir zones of influence)
• Use the WCS monitor tab and alarm summary to verify the WLAN operations
• Generate standard WCS reports (inventory, CleanAir, client-related, AP-related, and utilization)

Conduct basic WLAN Maintenance and Troubleshooting
• Identify and use basic WLAN troubleshooting tools (WLC show debug and logging) for client to AP connectivity, AP to controller connectivity
• Use the WCS client troubleshooting tool
• Transfer logs, configuration files, and O/S images to and from the WLC via the GUI
• Differentiate and use WLC and AP (autonomous and LAP) management access methods (console port, CLI, telnet, ssh, http, https, and wired vs wireless management)

By far the most competitve price we found, which included exam vouchers, hands on labs, practice test and a true Master of Cyber Security concepts as our Instructor. Franklin Mesa was the best trainer I have ever had and i walked out certified on the last day of my CompTIA Security+ certification bootcamp.

The Academy is one of the best educational values for today's job market.  I studied hard and got certified (A+ and N+).  Even though I had no prior IT experience, I now have a good job replacing obsolete computers in hospitals throughout the country.  At my job interview, I just slid my test scores and certification across the table to the interviewer, who is now my boss.  I was hired the next day.  

Not bad for a 65 year old.

John Arnett- Student 

"I congratulate The Academy for a great facility and good lab computers. The Academy is great and I will definitely be taking more courses and utilizing the services available. Omer Palo is an excellent instructor that truly knows his material. I never felt bored in his class which is a first for me. Thank You."
