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.
