A wireless local area network uses technology that uses radio waves or infrared light instead of cables in order to connect computers and other devices. In our course, Installing, Configuring, and Maintaining WLANs, we will be looking at the important components that make up wireless technologies. This course will cover topics on, basic components and technologies at work, various standards that exist for wireless networks known as the 802.11 series of standards, planning security for potential threats and vulnerabilities, and ensuring the availability of wireless networks through the proper amount of planning. This course will be paired with demos giving the student a look at real world examples. This course is designed to prepare the student for the Network+ certification exam.
