Description

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.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Andrew Crouthamel, and welcome to my course, Designing Cisco Wireless Networks: High Availability. I am a senior network engineer and educator. This course is a discussion on methods and technologies used to provide redundancy for wired and wireless infrastructure to ensure wireless client uptime. Some of the major topics include link aggregation, stateful switchover and non‑stop forwarding, controller priority and redundancy, access point load balancing, and finally, access point prioritization and fallback. By the end of this course, you will learn how to properly design and implement redundant infrastructure for a wireless network while understanding controller and access point resiliency technologies. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic network technology or have your CCNA certification. I hope you'll join me in this journey to learn about wireless redundancy and high availability with the Designing Cisco Wireless Networks: High Availability course, at Pluralsight.
