Cisco Unified Wireless Networking (CUWN) Training

CUWN Bootcamp

Redeem Learning Credits
Cisco Unified Wireless Networking (CUWN) is a 5-day instructor-led course that teaches students to successfully deploy a Cisco Unified Wireless Network solution.

After a high-level overview of the CUWN, including function, components, capabilities and features, students will learn to install the access point (AP), associated Wireless LAN Controllers (WLCs) and other CUWN hardware. Students will look at ways to administer CUWN, 802.11 security policies and Quality of Service (QoS) appropriately to protect and optimize performance on the wireless network. Students will configure and implement key CUWN security features to mitigate WLAN security threats and will learn how to use troubleshooting methodology and tools to gather and assess system data to isolate equipment failures and security threats.

In hands-on labs, students will learn to complete initial controller configuration using the console management interface and set up the controller using the command-line interface (CLI) and graphical user interface (GUI). Students will configure APs with high availability, set up a mobility group and then perform AP deployment in a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Option 43 and a DNS/DHCP option. Students will provision APs in various options and examine AP behaviors in those configurations. Students will explore how to set up interface groups to allow VLAN pooling, configure a controller to handle VideoStream and set up a WLAN with web authentication as the security policy. Students will configure the WLAN controller to support a web authentication client and a wireless client for WPA2 using the PEAP-MSCHAPv2 option. Students will create a secured WLAN on the controller using EAP-FAST for authentication based on local EAP and WPA or WPA2 for encryption. Students will also perform a pre-image download to preload a new controller firmware image into the AP.

What's Included

  • Comprehensive study materials, including official Cisco courseware
  • Remote lab access

CUWN Training Prerequisites
