Designing Cisco Wireless Enterprise Networks

5 days


Deploying Cisco Wireless Enterprise Networks is a 5-day ILT class designed to help students prepare for the CCNP-Wireless certification, a professional level certification specializing in the wireless field. The goal is to provide network professional with information to prepare them to deploy wireless networks using Cisco controller and unified switching architectures policies and best practices, as well as ensure the proper implementation of mobility standards and proper configuration of all aspects of wireless components. WIDEPLOY reinforces the instruction by providing students with hands-on labs to ensure students thoroughly understand how to configure and deploy the new Cisco 8.0, Prime Infrastructure release 2.2, and Mobility Services Engine release 8.0 features.

  • Senior Wireless Network Engineer
  • WLAN Engineer
  • Wireless Consulting Engineer
  • Wireless Network Planning Engineer
  • Wireless Implementation Engineer
  • Cisco Certified Network Professional Wireless (CCNP Wireless)


Individuals involved in the planning and design of Cisco Wireless Networks.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site, and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
