Designing Cisco Wireless Enterprise Networks v1.1

Course Description


Designing Cisco® Wireless Enterprise Networks (WIDESIGN) Version 1.0 is a Cisco Training on Demand course. It is in the curriculum for the CCNP® Wireless certification and provides you a new perspective on designing wireless networks. You learn how to design a Cisco wireless network from beginning to end, from customer first contact to post-deployment reports, and how to conduct walk-throughs, identify difficult areas, and optimize the survey process to provide a better access-point-to-coverage ratio. With this course, you use tools to assist in wireless design and management as well as labs that reinforce design concepts.


This course is intended for wireless network engineers with 3 to 5 years of experience in the networking field and those preparing for the 300-360 WIDESIGN exam.
