Description

The demand for wireless courses that prepare students for wireless certification and the core knowledge of wireless equipment and technology has grown significantly within the past year. The Cisco Networking Academy Program is meeting this demand with its new online course that is launching in July 2003. The Fundamentals of Wireless LANs course will cover the basics of wireless LANs as well as prepare the student for the Cisco Wireless LAN Support Specialist designation. The Lab Companion will supplement the online curriculum for a fully integrated learning package. The lab manual provides exercises that cover wireless networking technologies, both fixed and mobile, terrestrial and satellite, wireless LANs, and wireless last loops. The next section focuses on wireless clients, access points, and the corresponding Cisco Aironet products. The last section of the title pulls together the information in the previous sections and covers the entire process of designing, planning, and installing a wireless LAN. The activities contained in the lab manual reinforce the concepts presented in the online curriculum and the Companion Guide.show more
