WIDESIGN – Designing Cisco Wireless Enterprise Networks is part of the new CCNP Wireless v3 from Cisco Systems. This course is a 5 day ILT class that offers a new perspective on designing your wireless networks. The student will learn how to design a wireless network from the beginning to end, from customer-first contact to post-deployment reports. The student will learn how to conduct walk-throughs, identify difficult areas and optimize the survey process to provide a better AP-to-coverage ratio.

Wireless Experts agree, the majority of issues reported in Enterprise Wireless Networks today can be associated to poor planning or design. WIDESIGN – Designing Cisco Wireless Enterprise Networks is a 5 day instructor led course designed to prepare students to plan, and design modern Enterprise Wireless Networks. Students will leave with the knowledge and confidence to tackle new Enterprise Wireless Design projects, and be prepared to take exam 300-360.
 
Students attending WIDESIGN will receive
5 days instruction by a Cisco Certified Systems Professional (CCSI)
Official Cisco Student Kit (Student Guide, LAB Guide)
Official LAB Access during the course
