Cisco ICND1 1.1: Implementing Wireless LANs

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.


Historically, LANs have been limited to physical wired segments. With the advent of technologies that utilized infrared and RF to carry data, LANs were freed from the limitations of a physical media. This course describes the reasons for extending the reach of a LAN and the methods that can be used to do so, with a focus on RF wireless access. With the extension of LANs, new types of applications appeared, such as VoIP. This course also briefly describes the main drivers of VoIP implementations on LANs.
