Description

Good wireless network engineers need to understand how to create a supporting wired infrastructure to ensure success of their wireless design. In this course, Designing Cisco Wireless Networks: Wired and Wireless Infrastructure, you'll learn to consider wired and wireless infrastructure requirements, define network requirements, and design specialty wireless networks. First, you'll learn about supplying power to access points, cabling restrictions, and mounting options. Next, you'll learn to consider design requirements such as data, voice and video, and roaming. Finally, you'll manage radio resources on your access points, and design specialty wireless networks, such as high-density and mesh. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge of wireless design needed to implement modern, accessible networks. Software required: none.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Andrew Crouthamel, and welcome to my course, Designing Cisco Wireless Networks: Wired and Wireless Infrastructure. I'm a senior network engineer and educator. This course is a discussion on physical infrastructure requirements and design requirements for wireless networks. Some of the major topics include power and placement of access points and switching closets, voice and video design requirements, location and hyperlocation services, radio resource management and, finally, specialty networks such as high density and mesh. By the end of this course, you will learn how to properly plan the infrastructure for a wireless network, understand specialty network requirements, and licensing situations. 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 infrastructure requirements with the designing Cisco Wireless Networks: Wired and Wireless Infrastructure course, at Pluralsight.
