Cisco IUWNE 1.0: Access Point Management

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

Overview

The primary function of an access point is to provide entry onto a network to wireless clients. However, access points can also be expected to monitor channels to detect rogues or interference, locate devices, or help troubleshoot network issues. As well, access points need to be able to dynamically service legitimate clients as they move from the range of one access point into the range of another. The ability to centrally manage the access points within a network can greatly reduce the load on administrative duties. This course describes the operational modes of access points and explains the concepts behind roaming users. The course also covers some of the common configuration parameters run on a controller as they relate to access points. This course also introduces the Cisco Mobility Express Architecture and explains some of the specific differences between it and the enterprise version of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network solution.
This course maps to the 640-721, Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Networking Essentials (IUWNE), exam objectives for describing the Cisco Mobility Express Wireless architecture (Smart Business Communication System – SBCS, Cisco Config Agent – CCA, 526WLC, 521AP – stand-alone and controller-based); describing the modes of controller-based AP deployment (local, monitor, HREAP, sniffer, rogue detector, bridge); describing roaming (Layer 2 and Layer 3, intra-controller and inter-controller, mobility groups); configuring the basics of a stand-alone access point (no lab) (Express setup, basic security); and describing RRM.
