Schaumburg, IL (PRWEB) October 25, 2011
TrainSignal, the global leader in professional computer training, announced the release of their Cisco CCNA Wireless Training course.
The course is designed to give networking professionals (CCNA, CWNP, Network+ etc.) the opportunity to learn specialized skills in wireless networking. Since more and more SMBs and enterprises are expanding their infrastructures with wireless security in mind, companies target certifications when selecting administrators to oversee the implementation of well-designed and secure wireless networks.
The course’s structure will greatly benefit those looking for instruction on wireless LAN fundamentals, as the preliminary lessons explain concepts in wireless and RF (radio frequency) theory. Once the theoretical concepts are established, a demonstration for setting up a wireless lab provides a functional & operational system for students to use during the course, one similar to an actual Cisco Unified Wireless environment. These foundational portions of the course also include an overview of CUWN products, and how those devices are integrated into a generic Cisco Wireless network.
The Cisco CCNA Wireless Training course teaches the necessary wireless LAN concepts for the corresponding certification exam using real-world scenarios as the backdrop. An entire lesson focuses specifically on preparing for the Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Network Essentials (IUWNE) 640-721 exam, complete with Cisco test-taking strategies so students can feel as comfortable on test day as they will with daily work tasks.
Physical environment and security are large points-of-interest for wireless networking, especially considering effective access points, wireless network redundancy and configuration of Cisco Unified Wireless Controllers (WLC). The course has a lab exercise for understanding how to apply authentication and encryption methods in a real environment to meet such concerns. The most critical lessons of the course cover:
- Cisco Unified Wireless Architecture
- WLAN Fundamentals: Physical & Logical Components, Operation
- WLAN Design Principles: Design & Optimization Tools, Spread Spectrum Analysis
- Wireless Security Considerations: Security Threats, Authentication Methods
- WLAN Maintenance and Troubleshooting
The course’s instructor, Joe Rinehart, holds many certifications along with valuable networking experience in Fortune 500’s and educational training settings. He has over 14 years experience deploying networks, garnering him positions as both a successful speaker and published author. As a CCIE CCNA CCNP, he presents his instruction with the experience of a network administrator in mind.
“When wireless first came out, there were huge security holes. How security is implemented is particularly important in financial institutions, federal institutions, healthcare in particular, and so you have to make sure that those are done really well. [One needs] a good understanding about how all the protocols fit together, how security is a part of that, and then also how to make the user experience as seamless as possible.” –Cisco CCNA Wireless Instructor Joe Rinehart
