Introduction to Juniper Networks Wireless LANs — A 4 day course

contact usEnquire about this course


This is a four-day instructor led training course on the Juniper Networks Wireless LAN Services (WLS) system.

The course includes an overview of the full range of hardware and software products and their capabilities and features. The course describes the WLS system architecture and a project framework for planning a WLS system deployment. 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).

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 as well as practical and group exercises to ensure a high level of hands-on experience with the Juniper Networks WLS system components.

The course is based on the Juniper Networks wireless LAN system (WLS) software release 7.5.
