Official publisher for CWNP releases study guide for new CWDP certification exam

CWDP is the only certification on the market specifically targeted at IT professionals responsible for planning, designing, and troubleshooting a wireless enterprise. The exam is now available in over 100 countries through Pearson VUE testing centers. Sybex, an imprint of Wiley, is the official publisher for Certified Wireless Network Professional, Inc. and has just brought out the official study guide for the Advanced Certified Wireless Design Professional (CWDP) certification from CWNP.

In 'CWDP Certified Wireless Design Professional Official Study Guide Exam PW0-250' (ISBN: 9780470769041; Wiley/Sybex; March; 864 pages) readers learn how to design WLANs for every major type of environment including:

  •     Businesses
  •     Hospitals
  •     Education
  •     Outdoor Spaces
  •     Building-to-Building Links
  •     Retail

The CWDP certification ensures practitioners have the skills to successfully design enterprise Wi-Fi networks for a variety of different applications, deployments, and environments, no matter which brand of Wi-Fi gear the organization deploys. Design incorporates the foundation of radio frequency (RF) principles, methods for determining radio locations, how they should be configured given the applications/devices intended to be used and many other factors that will ultimately determine the success or failure of a WLAN deployment.
