The only authorized Lab Companion for the Cisco Networking Academy Program
Many of the book features help facilitate a full understanding of wireless LANs by:
- Stating the objectives that will be accomplished in each lab.
- Providing you with scenario overviews that relate the labs to real-world experiences.
- Providing the network topology designs that will be required to complete the lab.
- Detailing any preparation and setup that will be necessary before beginning the steps listed in each lab.
- Listing any tools or outside resources that are needed or are helpful to the completion of each lab.
- Asking questions within the labs that elicit particular points of understanding and that verify your comprehension of the technology being implemented.
This convenient Lab Companion provides you with the complete collection of lab exercises specifically written to accompany the Fundamentals of Wireless LANs web-based course in the Cisco Networking Academy Program.
The labs give you hands-on experience and a thorough introduction to wireless technologies and concepts. They are grouped according to topics corresponding to the chapters in the Cisco Networking Academy Program Fundamentals of Wireless LANs Companion Guide.
This Lab Companion contains 57 labs allowing you ample opportunities to connect theory with practice. Most of the labs are hands-on and require access to a Cisco lab or a simulator. Additional paper-based labs, which are practice exercises for complex topics, are included to supplement the online course. All are designed with real-world examples to give you practical experience.
Step-by-step instructions walk you through themethods necessary to successfully complete each lab, making this Lab Companion a valuable reference you can use on the job.
