ENWLSD - Designing Cisco Enterprise Wireless Networks v1.1


Duration: 5 days
The Designing Cisco Enterprise Wireless Networks (ENWLSD) v1.1 course gives you the knowledge you need to design Cisco® wireless networks. The course covers design specifics from scenario design concepts through the installation phase and into post-deployment validation.
This course, including the self-paced material, helps prepare you to take the exam, Designing Cisco Enterprise Wireless Networks (300-425 ENWLSD), which leads to to the new CCNP® Enterprise and Cisco Certified Specialist – Enterprise Wireless Design certifications. This course also earns you 40 Continuing Education (CE) credits towards recertification.


After taking this course, you should be able to:
 Describe and implement a Cisco-recommended structured design methodology
 Describe and implement industry standards, amendments, certifications, and Requests For Comments (RFCs)
 Describe and implement Cisco enhanced wireless features
 Describe and implement the wireless design process
 Describe and implement specific vertical designs
 Describe and implement site survey processes
 Describe and implement network validation processes
