by Andrew Crouthamel

No one wants an outage. Prevent downtime by designing redundancy into your wireless network. In this course, learn how to design various redundant systems into your network to ensure a quality experience for your clients.

What you'll learn

Good wireless network engineers need to understand how to prevent network outages and ensure a stable system for its users. In this course, Designing Cisco Wireless Networks: High Availability, you'll learn to design for resiliency and ensure your infrastructure, wireless controllers, and access points remain available. First, you'll learn how to provide redundant cabling with link aggregation. Next, you'd explore enabling controller fail over capabilities with SSO and NSF. Then, you'll discover how to configure controller priority. Finally, you'll learn to design resiliency into your access points by configuring load balancing, and enabling prioritization and fallback. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge of wireless design needed to implement a resilient wireless network. Software required: none.
