The goal of Deploying Cisco Wireless Enterprise Networks (WIDEPLOY) is to provide network professionals with the knowledge and skills required to successfully deploy wireless networks using Cisco controller and unified switching architectures policies and best practices. It also helps to ensure the proper implementation of mobility standards and proper configuration of all aspects of wireless components. WIDEPLOY provides students with hands-on labs to reinforce concepts.  Concepts include configuring and deploying Cisco AireOS 8.0, Cisco Prime Infrastructure Release 2.2, and Cisco Mobility Services Engine Release 8.0 features.

Deploying Cisco Wireless Enterprise Networks is targeted toward wireless network engineers with 3-5 years of experience in the networking field.

The WIDEPLOY course is a 5 day course, designed to help students prepare for the CCNP Wireless certification, a Professional level certification specializing in the wireless field.

Cisco CCNP Wireless certification addresses the need for designing, implementing, and operating Cisco Wireless networks and mobility infrastructures. CCNP Wireless certification emphasizes wireless networking principles and theory.

 

Prerequisite Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes (KSA)

This topic lists the skill, knowledge, and attitudes that learners must possess to benefit fully from the course. It includes recommended Cisco learning offerings that the learner may complete to benefit fully from this course.  It is also recommended that learners considered for this training have a basic knowledge of the following:

  • Cisco Prime Infrastructure
  • Cisco Identity Services Engine
  • Metageek Channelizer Software
  • Voice Signaling Protocol
  • Basic QoS
  • Application Visibility and Control
  • LAN switching

This course’s student kit material is in a digital format (e-kit), which is accessed from the Cisco Learning Network Space. A CCO ID is required to log in. Remote Lab Guides are emailed to you in PDF format.  The PDF version will be completely printable. It is recommended that you print your remote lab guide before class begins.

This course is available in multiple formats. You can purchase instructor-led training (ILT) in a classroom setting or virtual ILT via the web. Both the classroom ILT and virtual ILT versions of this course come with access to our state of the art remote labs that use actual Cisco equipment.

For Classroom ILT classes, you will need at a minimum to bring your own laptop or tablet to view your digital courseware during class.  It is recommend that you redeem your e-kit prior to the class start date.  It is also recommended to that you bring another tablet or a second monitor to access the lab. This allows you to follow along with the instructor during the presentation on one screen and access the lab on the second screen.

For Virtual ILT classes, it is recommend that you have either dual monitors or a computer and tablet where you can view your digital e-kit on the secondary screen and view the class presentation or labs on the primary screen.

To use your own laptop for lab access, the laptop computer must have the following:

1. Ethernet port

2. An internal wireless NIC, 802.11a/b/g/n

3. A browser that supports Java® and permissions to open RDP or encrypted (RDP443) RDP sessions. If your browser does not support Java, you will need administrator rights to the laptop to install software.
