CUWN Bootcamp

Cisco Unified Wireless Networking (CUWN) is a five-day instructor-led course that combines Deploying Cisco Basic Wireless LANs (WDBWL) and Deploying Advanced Cisco Wireless LANs (WDAWL), presenting students with challenging real-world deployments such as client mobility between subnets, high client density deployments, and mesh network deployments. Students will be trained on how to make network design decisions about, configure, and troubleshoot WLANs with these challenges. The format of the course allows students and the instructor to explore realistic use cases and best practices around more challenging deployment scenarios.

What's Included

  • Comprehensive study materials, including official Cisco courseware
  • Remote lab access

Prerequisites

  • Prior completion of Defining Cisco Wireless LAN Essentials course or equivalent work experience (recommended)
  • Cisco CCNA® or equivalent work experience
  • RF/Wireless field experience (helpful)

Course Objectives

After completing this course, you will be able to:
  • Differentiate the characteristics of a unified wireless LAN architecture, and configure and test the controllers, access points, and basic features
  • Differentiate the characteristics of a FlexConnect architecture, configure and deploy a FlexConnect based wireless LAN
  • Perform routine maintenance, network monitoring, and common troubleshooting tasks on the Cisco wireless LAN
  • Describe and perform configuration with Cisco's new Ease of Use wizard, and best practices audit
  • Detail the differences in client mobility between Layer 2 and Layer 3
  • Configure the controller to appropriately mark priority traffic for transmission first in times of network congestion and avoid introducing unnecessary IPv6 which could lead to network congestion
  • Discuss the challenges faced in providing a quality user experience in a high density wireless network deployment scenario
  • Design, install, and maintain a wireless mesh network both as an add-on to an existing WLAN and as a new installation
