CWNA Overviewcourse will prepare you for the CWNA-107 certification exam. Wireless networking is one of the fastest growing technologies in the marketplace, and there is a lack of qualified engineers to address the design, implementation and administration of these networks. This course covers the basics of RF behavior, the attributes and purpose of wireless LAN components, and the basic knowledge to install, configure and analyze wireless networks, peripheral devices, and protocols.
In this course, you’ll go beyond basic theory and also learn how administer, assess, and evaluate a host of configurations that you’re bound to encounter in the wireless industry field.
Here are the major topics we cover to get you on the path to become a Certified Wireless engineer:
- Understand and grasp the basic characteristics of RF and RF behavior
- Understand and apply RF mathematics, antenna designs and applications, and various accessories
- Comprehend the differences between spread spectrum technologies, how they work, and their concepts
- Identify the various organizations governing wireless fields, their role, standards and regulations
- Learn the different frame types, and exchange sequences
- Define and understand the service sets for WLAN and association and authentication to each one and the purpose of infrastructure devices
- Understand network implementation, troubleshooting, PoE, different architectures, and the deployment of WLAN models
- Identify strengths and weakness of various 802.11 security measures
- How to perform the basics of site surveys, the tools required, and when to use them
