Training goals dlearning

code: EN-EAW

Students will learn methods to properly configure and manage their Extreme Wireless WLAN environments using network management software (Extreme Management Center and the Wireless Assistant) applications. This knowledge will be reinforced through actual hands-on experience with wireless equipment in a lab environment, where students will perform real world tasks configuring access points, security parameters, filtering and privacy settings, as well managing their wireless network.

Upon completion of this course, students will have gained the working knowledge to:

  • Successfully configure and manage their Wireless implementation
  • Take the Extreme Wireless Specialist certification exam

Target Audience:

  • This course is designed for individuals responsible for the configuration, management, maintenance, and support of the Extreme Wireless networks.
