IJWL – Introduction to Juniper Networks Wireless LANs
3 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Wireless / Mobility

Course Details

The IJWL – Introduction to Juniper Networks Wireless LANs is a three-day course that provides an overview of the WLS hardware and software products and their capabilities and features. This course describes the WLS system architecture and a project framework for deploying a WLS system. It covers the Radio Frequency (RF) planning capabilities of the RingMaster software and basic wireless LAN controller (WLC) configuration through the command-line interface (CLI) and the WebView interface. The course then moves on to describe system and service configuration using RingMaster. The course also describes a secure, enterprise-grade employee service in detail and introduces other service options (such as a Web portal login). Integration issues with the back-end authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA), Domain Name System (DNS), and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) servers are examined, and the monitoring, management, and reporting capabilities of the RingMaster software are also described.

The course uses a combination of lecture and hands-on labs to gain experience with the Juniper Networks WLS. The course is based on the Juniper Networks WLS software Release 8.0.3.6.

 

Course Level: IJWL is an intermediate-level course.
