CCNA Wireless Series
Going through these six courses will provide you with a practical and theoretical basis from which you can effectively administer a wireless network. With the knowledge gained through each course’s discussions, you will be ready to sit for the CCNA Wireless exam. So take your time going through these topics to learn the ins and outs of Cisco WCS, as well the techniques and concepts involved in installing, securing, and troubleshooting WLANs. Learn everything you need to know to become a certified associate-level wireless administrator.
It’s imperative for all network engineers to be familiar with the fundamental topics of a wireless network, including basic spread spectrum technology, the wireless regulatory bodies, and the impact of different wireless technologies. WLAN Fundamentals covers these topics in depth, and takes a look at some wireless topologies that are common in today’s world. It also introduces and explains some key networking technologies used in wireless implementation. With the knowledge gained through these discussions, you will be ready for the WLAN questions in the CCNA Wireless exam.
Installation of a Basic Cisco Wireless LAN
Installation of a Basic Cisco Wireless LAN discusses various best practices for Cisco Unified Wireless Network Architectures and provides demonstrations of installing and configuring autonomous access points. Controller based access point deployment, how lightweight access points are discovered and associated, basic device and configuration aspects of a wireless controller, and design considerations when deploying a wireless network are other topics important for network engineers to be familiar with, and are discussed in detail within this course. Prepare for the CCNA Wireless exam.
Installation of Wireless Clients
When installing wireless clients, a network engineer must be familiar with the client side of a wireless connection and how the client should be configured for wireless LAN access. Installation of Wireless Clients demonstrates how to properly configure various wireless clients, as well as providing you with a look at Cisco Compatibility Extensions, or CCX, versions 1 through 5. Going through this course will give you a practical and theoretical basis from which you can effectively administer a wireless network, and thoroughly prepare for the CCNA Wireless certification exam.
Basic WLAN Security
Basic WLAN Security provides a close up look at the implementation of security on the wireless network and some of the different aspects of wireless security. How to properly configure authentication and encryption methods is demonstrated and the significance of guest wireless networks is explained. Designed to help prepare you for the CCNA Wireless exam topics covered in this course include WEP, MAC authentication, 802.1x, and WPA and WPA2.
Basic WCS Operations
It is essential that network engineers be familiar with the features of wireless control systems and how to install, upgrade and configure basic administrative parameters. Basic WCS Operation discusses these topics in detail, and demonstrates the configuration of access points and controllers in a WCS environment, how to audit them, and how to properly use heat maps for an environment in a wireless environment. To prepare for the CCNA Wireless exam, it is also important that you have an understanding of WCS. So take your time going through these topics to learn the ins and outs of Cisco WCS.
Basic WLAN Maintenance and Troubleshooting
Basic WLAN maintenance through the WCS and the WLC interface is critical knowledge that all network engineers must have. Basic WLAN Maintenance and Troubleshooting looks at the WCS client troubleshooting tool, along with some other maintenance tools and commands available in WCS. You will concentrate on Cisco WCS logging, administration, and how to troubleshoot a wireless infrastructure. Study these concepts and techniques in preparation for your CCNA Wireless certification exam.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, known as OSHA, has developed standards that ensure all workers are protected in the workplace. Established in 1970 through the OSH Act, many of the health and safety programs and procedures implemented nationwide today are based on OSHA’s standards, with the guidance of industrial hygienists. Over the next couple of months, you’ll find additional titles dedicated to this important category of workplace safety.
Introduction to Industrial Hygiene
Industrial hygiene covers a vast number of subjects in the working environment. Early in its history, OSHA understood that industrial hygiene played an integral part of ensuring a healthful work setting. It is paramount to use the application of industrial hygiene concepts in its health standards and as a tool to effectively enforce job safety and health regulations. By recognizing and applying the basic values of industrial hygiene to the work environment, the workplace will become healthier and safer. Learn how to identify sources of potential problems, about the different types of hazards, and how to control and respond to those hazards in the workplace.
