This is the only complete, all-in-one guide
to deploying, running, and troubleshooting wireless networks with
Cisco® Wireless LAN Controllers (WLCs) and
Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP)/Control and Provisioning
of Wireless Access Points (CAPWAP). Authored by two of the most
experienced Cisco wireless support professionals, the book presents
start-to-finish coverage of implementing WLCs in existing wired and
wireless network environments, troubleshooting design-related
issues, and using LWAPP/CAPWAP solutions to achieve your specific
business and technical goals.
One step at a time, you’ll walk
through designing, configuring, maintaining, and scaling wireless
networks using Cisco Unified Wireless technologies. The authors
show how to use LWAPP/CAPWAP to control multiple Wi-Fi wireless
access points at once, streamlining network administration and
monitoring and maximizing scalability. Drawing on their
extensive problem-resolution experience, the authors also provide
expert guidelines for troubleshooting, including an end-to-end
problem-solving model available in no other book.
Although not specifically designed to help you pass the CCIE® Wireless written and lab exams, this book does provide you with real-world configuration and troubleshooting examples. Understanding the basic configuration practices, how the products are designed to function, the feature sets, and what to look for while troubleshooting these features will be invaluable to anyone wanting to pass the CCIE Wireless exams.
