Description

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.

Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Andrew Crouthamel, and welcome to my course, Wireless Architecture Fundamentals. I'm a senior network engineer and educator. This course is an introduction to wireless topologies and design. Some of the major topics include wireless topologies such as BSS and ESS, a discussion of repeaters, mesh networks, and other equipment, layer 2 and layer 3 roaming, access point cell size considerations, and finally, extending an ESS with additional access points. By the end of this course, you will learn how to properly design a small network and how clients will roam through it. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic network technology or have your CCNA certification. From here, you should feel comfortable designing a small wireless network. I hope you'll join me in this journey to learn about wireless design with the Wireless Architecture Fundamentals course, at Pluralsight.
