Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Andrew Crouthamel, and welcome to my course, Designing Cisco Wireless Networks: Mobility. I'm a senior network engineer and educator. This course is a discussion on technologies used to provide various methods of roaming for wireless clients. Some of the major topics include roaming methods, mobility groups, infrastructure design considerations for roaming, access point signal and data rate adjustments, and finally, IEEE enhancements used for roaming. By the end of this course, you will learn how to properly design and implement wireless infrastructure to support a quality environment for fast roaming of wireless clients. 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 roaming with the Designing Cisco Wireless Networks: Mobility course, at Pluralsight.
