Creating Rock Stars since 1984

Deploying Cisco Advanced Wireless LANs v1.0 (WDAWL)

This 2-day instructor-led, hands-on course builds upon the basic deployments course by presenting students with more challenging real-world deployments such as client mobility between subnets, high client density deployments, and mesh network deployments. Students will be able to make network design decisions about, configure, and troubleshoot WLANs that encounter these challenges. Much of the time in the course allows the instructor and students to share experience, gotchas, and best practice around more challenging deployment scenarios.

The goal of this course is to enable network planners and administrators to deploy an efficient wireless LAN (WLAN) enterprise solution. To accomplish this, the course is designed to provide the learner a better understanding and appreciation of the complexities involved in efficiently supporting, client mobility, areas of high client density and the implementation of a MESH network in a customer enterprise environment.


The knowledge and skills that a learner must have before attending this course are as follows:

  • Basic networking
  • RF/Wireless field experience (helpful)
  • Prior completion of either the Defining Cisco Wireless LAN Essentials course, Deploying Basic Cisco Wireless LANs, Cisco Unified Wireless Networking course or Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Networking Essentials course, or equivalent experience (recommended)
