In this intermediate Cisco Wireless training, Keith Barker prepares learners to take the 200-355 WIFUND exam, which is the one required exam to earn the CCNA Wireless certification.
In some ways, building a wireless network is easier than building a wired one. In other ways it’s a lot harder — this training will show you how and why. With the CCNA Wireless, you’re specializing in one of the most sought after positions in networking. After completing this training, you’ll know what it takes to set up wireless networks that range from a small office setting to a stadium. Along the way, you'll learn how to use Wireless LANs (WLANs) including access points (APs), WLAN controllers (WLCs), and how to configure WLAN security.
For anyone who manages Cisco training for their office or workcenter, this wireless training can be used for 200-355 WIFUND exam prep, on-boarding new network administrators, or as part of a team training plan.
