Good network engineers need to understand how to create a wireless infrastructure without causing problems to the existing infrastructure. In this course, Designing Cisco Wireless Networks: Wireless Site Surveys, you'll explore site survey tools and methods, such as active, passive, and predictive surveys. First, you'll learn about the tools and types of site surveys you can perform. Next, you'll understand the details of each type, how they differ from each other, and when you would use each one. Finally, you'll create a predictive site survey for the warehouse at Globomantics. When you're finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of wireless site surveys needed for designing modern wireless networks. Software required: none.

Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Andrew Crouthamel, and welcome to my course, Designing Cisco Wireless Networks: Wireless Site Surveys. I'm a senior network engineer and educator. This course is a discussion on wireless site surveys, meaning the planning that's required before implementing a wireless infrastructure in a building. Some of the major topics include site survey tools, site survey types, such as active, passive, and predictive, reduction of wireless signal strength while it passes through various material types, known as material attenuation, and finally, the creation of a predictive site survey of a fictional warehouse for Globomantics. By the end of this course, you will learn how to perform a site survey and plan it according to business requirements. 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 site surveys with the Designing Cisco Wireless Networks: Wireless Site Surveys course, at Pluralsight.
