Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Mobility Services


Description The Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Mobility Services is a 5 day ILT course, designed to help students prepare for the CCNP-Wireless certification, a professional level certification specializing in the wireless field. The IUWMS course is a component of the proposed CCNP-Wireless curriculum. The IUWMS course is designed to give students a firm understanding of how to integrate mobility services into the network; tune and troubleshoot the WLAN and implement indoor enterprise mesh networks. The IUWMS reinforces the instruction by providing students with hand-on labs to ensure students thoroughly understand how to implement mobility services in the wireless network.
