Wireless Architecture Fundamentals

by Andrew Crouthamel

No one wants to poorly design a network. This course will teach you wireless topologies, layer 2 and layer 3 roaming, access point cell size considerations, and how to extend an ESS with additional access points.

What you'll learn

Setting up a wireless network can be much more than plugging in a wireless router. In this course, Wireless Architecture Fundamentals, you'll learn foundational design of wireless networks. First, you'll learn about wireless topologies. Next, you'll explore how clients can roam across a network with layer 2 and layer 3 roaming. Finally, you'll discover how to extend and adjust a network's size to meet design requirements. When you're finished with this course, you should feel comfortable designing a small wireless network.
