Overview

The Designing Cisco Enterprise Wireless Networks (ENWLSD) v1.0 course gives you the knowledge you need to design Cisco wireless networks.

The course covers design specifics from scenario design concepts through the installation phase and into post-deployment validation. It will help you gain the knowledge you need to plan advanced designs of Cisco wireless products, and qualify for professional-level job roles in wireless networking.

This course, including the self-paced material, helps you prepare to take the exam 300-425 (ENWLSD), which leads to the new CCNP Enterprise and Cisco Certified Specialist – Enterprise Wireless Design certifications.

Digital courseware: Cisco now provides students with electronic courseware for this course. Students who have a confirmed booking will be sent an email prior to the course start date, with a link to create an account via learningspace.cisco.com before they attend their first day of class. Please note that any electronic courseware or labs will not be available (visible) until the first day of the class.
