Controller-Based Wireless LAN Fundamentals
An end-to-end reference guide to design, deploy, manage, and secure 802.11 wireless networks
As wired networks are increasingly replaced with 802.11n wireless connections, enterprise users are shifting to centralized, next-generation architectures built around Wireless LAN Controllers (WLC). These networks will increasingly run business-critical voice, data, and video applications that once required wired Ethernet.
In Controller-Based Wireless LAN Fundamentals, three senior Cisco wireless experts bring together all the practical and conceptual knowledge professionals need to confidently design, configure, deploy, manage, and troubleshoot 802.11n networks with Cisco Unified Wireless Network (CUWN) technologies.
The authors first introduce the core principles, components, and advantages of next-generation wireless networks built with Cisco offerings. Drawing on their pioneering experience, the authors present tips, insights, and best practices for network design and implementation as well as detailed configuration examples.
Next, they illuminate key technologies ranging from WLCs to Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP) and Control and Provisioning of Wireless Access Points (CAPWAP), Fixed Mobile Convergence to WiFi Voice. They also show how to take advantage of the CUWN’s end-to-end security, automatic configuration, self-healing, and integrated management capabilities.
This book serves as a practical, hands-on reference for all network administrators, designers, and engineers through the entire project lifecycle, and an authoritative learning tool for new wireless certification programs. This is the only book that
This book is part of the Cisco Press® Fundamentals Series. Books in this series introduce networking professionals to new networking technologies, covering network topologies, sample deployment concepts, protocols, and management techniques.
Covers: Cisco Controller-Based Wireless LANs
As wired networks are increasingly replaced with wireless connections based on the new 802.11n standard, the enterprise wireless market is shifting to centralized, next-generation architectures that utilize wireless controllers. These networks will run business-critical voice, data, and video applications that formerly required wired Ethernet. In this book, two senior Cisco wireless experts bring together all the practical and conceptual knowledge professionals need to confidently design, configure, deploy, manage, and troubleshoot these advanced wireless networks with Cisco Unified Wireless Network technologies. The authors first introduce the core principles, components, and advantages of next-generation wireless networks built with Cisco technologies. Drawing on their pioneering experience, they present tips, insights, and best practices for network design and implementation, as well as detailed configuration examples. They illuminate key technologies ranging from wireless controllers to LWAPP and CAPWAP, 802.11n, Fixed Mobile Convergence, and WiFi Voice. The authors also show how to take advantage of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network's end-to-end security features; and simplify management by using its automatic configuration, self-healing, and integrated management capabilities. This book will serve as a practical, hands-on reference for the entire project lifecycle, as well as an authoritative comprehensive learning tool for new wireless certification programs.
