The Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Networking Essentials is a 5 day ILT course, designed to help students prepare for the CCNA Wireless Certification, an associate level certification specializing in the wireless field. The IUWNE course is a prerequisite to the CCNP Wireless (Cisco Certified Wireless Professional) curriculum. The CCNP Wireless curriculum will prepare wireless network professionals for the use, positioning, planning, implementation and operation of Cisco WLAN networks.

The goal of the IUWNE v2.0 is to provide students with information and practice activities to prepare them to help design, install, configure, monitor and conduct basic troubleshooting tasks of a Cisco WLAN in SMB and Enterprise installations.

This associate level course aims at providing entry level instruction, including WLAN Fundamentals, hands-on practice setting up a Cisco WLAN including APs and WLAN Controllers, setting up and configuring wireless clients, implementing WLAN Security and operating Cisco WCS.

For more advanced technical training on enterprise Cisco Wireless networking, explore one of the CCNP Wireless courses: Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Mobility Services (IUWMS), Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Voice Networks (IUWVN), Implementing Advanced Cisco Unified Wireless Security (IAUWS), Conducting Cisco Unified Wireless Site Survey (CUWSS)

Upon completion of this course, participants will gain foundational knowledge required to prepare for the CCNA Wireless Certification [Associate level] exam (640-721).

Learners will be able to:

  • Create an ad-hoc connection and analyze the communication
  • Configure a controller and access point (AP)
  • Convert an autonomous AP to controller-based mode
  • Configure EAP-FAST authentication with WPA
  • Configure the controller and the AP from the WCS interface
  • Work with the map editor tool
  • Back up the controller configuration and WCS database
