EDU-IAW Implementing Aruba WLANs
04 Dec 2015
The lab-intensive Implementing Aruba WLANs course is designed to provide students the knowledge, skills and practical experience required to set up and configure a basic Aruba WLAN.
Using lecture and labs, the class provides the technical understanding and hands-on experience of configuring a single-controller, single AP Aruba WLAN with emphasis on 802.11n technology. Students will practice using Aruba hardware and ArubaOS to install and build a complete, secure single-controller network with multiple SSIDs. At the end of the class, students will be able to deploy a single controller environment with 802.1X authentication, and secure guest networks.
Successful conclusion of the course and in-class exam earns the participant the Aruba Certified Mobility Associate (ACMA) status.
