Cisco CCNA Wireless Boot Camp

Duration: 5 days


Cisco Certified Network Associate Wireless (CCNA Wireless) validates associate-level knowledge and skills to configure, implement and support of wireless LANs, specifically those networks using Cisco equipment. With a CCNA Wireless certification, network professionals can support a basic wireless network on a Cisco WLAN in a SMB to enterprise network. The CCNA Wireless curriculum includes information and practice activities to prepare them for configuring, monitoring and troubleshooting basic tasks of a Cisco WLAN in SMB and Enterprise networks.

The Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Networking Essentials is a 5 day ILT course, designed to help students prepare for the IUWNE certification, an associate level certification specializing in the wireless field. The goal of the course is to provide students with information and practice activities to prepare them to help design, install, configure, monitor and conduct basic troubleshooting tasks of a Cisco WLAN in Enterprise installations.  


Any valid Cisco CCENT, CCNA Routing and Switching or any CCIE certification can act as a prerequisite.

 What's included?

  • Pre-Boot Camp study materials preparation

  • Certification test vouchers 

  • On-site testing

  • Five (5) full days of Intensive instruction, labs and review

  • Hands-on practice and skills development on real Cisco® routers and switches

  • Academy Custom Courseware

  • Up-to-Date Practice Tests, Trancenders and Measure Up practice materials

The Academy offers top-quality technical education and certification training in an all-inclusive course package specifically designed for the needs and ease of our students. We attend to every detail so our students can focus solely on their studies and certification goals. Instructors are available at all times to provide individual and group attention, lead lab exercises and practice sessions, and ensure the students’ success. Our attention to detail shows in our unsurpassed instruction and customer service, our classroom and testing facilities, and our individual and corporate success stories

Daily Schedule:

Our daily schedule incorporates different modes of instruction and learning environments to ensure that students learn, retain, comprehend, and can apply knowledge critical to becoming certified. 


Describe WLAN fundamentals
• Describe basics of spread spectrum technology
• Describe the impact of various wireless technologies (Bluetooth, WiMAX, ZigBee, and cordless phone)
• Describe wireless regulatory bodies, standards and certifications (FCC, ETSI, 802.11a/b/g/n, and WiFi Alliance)
• Describe Wireless LAN (WLAN) RF principles (antenna types, RF gain/loss, Effective Isotropic Radiated Power (EIRP), refraction, reflection, and so on)
• Describe networking technologies used in wireless (SSID to WLAN_ID to Interface to VLAN, 802.1q trunking)
• Describe wireless topologies, such as Independent Basic Service Set (IBSS), Basic Service Set (BSS), Extended Service Set (ESS), Point-to-Point, Point-to-Multipoint, Mesh, and bridging)
• Describe 802.11 authentication and encryption methods (Open, Shared, 802.1X, EAP, TKIP, and AES)
• Describe frame types (associated and unassociated, management, control, and data)
• Describe basic RF deployment considerations related to site survey design of data or VoWLAN applications, common RF interference sources such as devices, building material, AP location, and basic RF site survey design related to channel reuse, signal strength, and cell overlap

Install a basic Cisco wireless LAN
• Identify the components of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network architecture (Split MAC, LWAPP, stand-alone AP vs controller-based AP, specific hardware examples)
• Install and configure autonomous access points in the small business environment
• Describe the modes of controller-based AP deployment (local, monitor, HREAP, sniffer, rogue detector, bridge, OEAP, and SE-Connect)
• Describe controller-based AP discovery and association (DHCP, DNS, Master-Controller, Primary-Secondary-Tertiary, and n+1 redundancy)
• Describe roaming (Layer 2 and Layer 3, intra-controller and inter-controller, and mobility list)
• Configure a WLAN controller and access points WLC: ports, interfaces, WLANs, NTP, CLI and Web UI, CLI wizard, and link aggregation group (LAG) AP: Channel and Power
• Describe Radio Resource Management (RRM) fundamentals including ED-RRM.
• Verify basic wireless network operation

Install Wireless Clients
• Describe client WLAN configuration requirements, such as Service Set Identifier (SSID), security selection, and authentication
• Identify basic configuration of common wireless supplicants (Macintosh, Intel Wireless Pro, Windows, iOS, and Android)
• Describe basic AnyConnect 3.0 or above wireless configuration parameters
• Identify capabilities available in CCX versions 1 through 5

Implement basic WLAN Security
• Describe the general framework of wireless security and security components (authentication, encryption, MFP, IPS)
• Describe and configure authentication methods (Guest, PSK, 802.1X, WPA/WPA2 with EAP- TLS, EAP-FAST, PEAP, LEAP)
• Describe and configure encryption methods (WPA/WPA2 with TKIP, AES)
• Describe and configure the different sources of authentication (PSK, EAP-local or -external, Radius)

Operate basic WCS
• Identify key functions of Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS) and Navigator (versions and licensing)
• Navigate WCS interface
• Configure controllers and access points (APs) (using the Configuration tab not templates)
• Use preconfigured maps in the WCS (adding/relocating/removing access points, turn on/off heat maps, view client location, and view CleanAir zones of influence)
• Use the WCS monitor tab and alarm summary to verify the WLAN operations
• Generate standard WCS reports (inventory, CleanAir, client-related, AP-related, and utilization)

Conduct basic WLAN Maintenance and Troubleshooting
• Identify and use basic WLAN troubleshooting tools (WLC show debug and logging) for client to AP connectivity, AP to controller connectivity
• Use the WCS client troubleshooting tool
• Transfer logs, configuration files, and O/S images to and from the WLC via the GUI
• Differentiate and use WLC and AP (autonomous and LAP) management access methods (console port, CLI, telnet, ssh, http, https, and wired vs wireless management)

Academy Code of Honor
The Academy guarantees that students shall pass all vendor examinations during the training program or may re-attend within one year of the program completion date. Students will only be responsible for accommodations and vendor exam fees.
