Cisco IUWNE 1.0: Unified Wireless Network Basic Architecture
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
Depending on the size of a wireless network, the number of deployed access points (APs) can run from a single AP to thousands on a single campus. As WLANs get bigger and the number of devices grows, management can go from cumbersome to nearly impossible. Cisco’s Unified Wireless Network architecture provides a means to centralize configuration of APs. Service Set Identifier (SSID) configuration, power level, and channels can be automatically configured by a central control point. This course explains the basics of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network architecture, its operation, benefits, and components. In addition, it provides an overview of the primary Cisco APs and WLAN Controllers used in deployment. This course also describes Cisco’s wireless LAN controller, its hardware and configuration. The course also covers how lightweight access points (APs) associate and communicate with wireless LAN (WLAN) controllers to obtain software, configurations, and to access centralized management.
This course maps to the 640-721, Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Networking Essentials (IUWNE), exam objectives for describing the basics of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network architecture, including Split MAC, LWAPP, stand-alone AP versus controller-based AP, and specific hardware examples and describing controller-based AP discovery and association using OTAP, DHCP, DNS, Master-Controller, Primary-Secondary-Tertiary, and n+1 redundancy.
