Course Overview
Hi everyone! My name is Andrew Crouthamel, and welcome to my course, 802. 11 Technology Fundamentals for Cisco WIFUND (200-355). I'm a senior network engineer and educator. This course is an introduction to WLAN topologies and 802. 11 functionality. This is course two of seven in the CCNA wireless learning path. Some of the major topics include wireless topology such as BSS and ESS, a discussion of repeaters, mesh networks, and other equipment you might use, as well as 802. 11 frames, CSMA/CA, what that is and how clients connect to a wireless network. By the end of this course, you will learn how to properly utilize wireless equipment to design a small network and how clients access that network while preventing collisions. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic network technology or have your CCNA certification. From here you should feel comfortable diving in to the rest of the CCNA wireless learning path. I hope you'll join me in this journey to learn about the 802. 11 standard and wireless topologies with 802. 11 Technology Fundamentals for Cisco WIFUND (200-355) at Pluralsight.
