Designing and configuring an enterprise-grade wireless network requires special skills beyond those needed to create a wired network . This course will teach you the concepts and skills needed to design and deploy an enterprise-grade wireless LAN.
Designing and configuring an enterprise-grade wireless LAN is not like configuring a wired network. In this course, Cisco Enterprise Networks: 802.11 Wireless, you’ll learn the skills to design and configure enterprise wireless networks. First, you’ll explore radio frequency fundamentals. Next, you’ll discover WLAN 802.11 standards. After that you’ll learn about access point modes. Finally, you’ll learn about roaming and location services. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge needed to design and configure an enterprise WLAN deployment.

Course Overview Hi, everyone. I'm Ben Piper, author of the CCNP Enterprise Certification Study Guide, and welcome to my course, Cisco Enterprise Networks: 802.11 Wireless. A big misconception people have about wireless LANs is that they're just Ethernet networks that use radio signals instead of cables, but that is not the case. Wireless LANs have their own layer 1 and layer 2 standards that are, in many ways, very different than 802.3 Ethernet. In this course, you're going to learn how wireless LANs work at layer 1 and layer 2 and how they integrate with wired Ethernet networks. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include radio frequency fundamentals, wireless LAN 802.11 standards, access point modes and wireless LAN controllers, and, of course, roaming. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid grasp of wireless LAN fundamentals and what it takes to design and deploy a robust wireless network. Before beginning the course, you should have CCNA level skills. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn wireless networking with the Cisco Enterprise Networks: 802.11 Wireless course at Pluralsight.
