This course is a four day advanced training course on the Juniper Networks Wireless LAN Services (WLS) system. The course is designed to build on the skills learned in the Introduction to Junos Wireless LAN's ((IJWL) course), and take students to the next level of expertise as a Juniper Networks wireless design, implementation, or management engineer.
The course describes best practice guidelines for planning an enterprise-wide Juniper Networks WLS system with its flexible domain architecture. Best practices for advanced security are presented, as are the issues to be considered when deploying voice and mesh services. Centrally managed architectures are also presented. The course also includes a look at some advanced troubleshooting techniques.
The course uses a combination of lecture and practical exercises to ensure a high level of hands-on experience with Juniper Networks WLS hardware and software components, advanced authentication options, and other advanced features.
Students that attend this course will be eligible to receive a FREE Pearson-VUE test voucher that can be used to take the associated Juniper Networks JNCIS-WLAN Certification Exam
After successfully completing this course, students should be able to:
- Describe the design factors that must be taken into consideration when planning an enterprise wireless LAN (WLAN) system.
- Describe the requirements for WLAN security, for optimum support of voice services and for WLAN mesh solutions.
- Plan Radio Frequency (RF) coverage for data and voice services in a multi-storey, multi-building environment.
- Configure secure WLAN services using digital certificate-based authentications and machine authentication.
- Describe the issues for the remote management of Access Points (APs) and AP Controllers.
- Troubleshoot all aspects of a deployed WLS system.
- Configure voice optimized services.
- Build a WLAN mesh network in single-hop and multi-hop scenarios.
- Deploy and manage remote APs using the AP Controller auto-configuration capability in architectures with and without Network Address Translation (NAT).
This advanced-level course benefits individuals responsible for planning, configuring, managing, and monitoring devices on a Juniper Networks wireless network.
