Course Level: Advanced
Overview: The 802.11 protocol on which WiFi is based uses a collision avoidance method (CSMA/CA) to grant fair access to all users in the area, many times at the expense of reliable connectivity and performance. In order to determine the cause of most WiFi problems it will be necessary to identify and locate individual sources of RF interference, including non-WLAN devices, breakdown the most likely causes, perform tests to isolate and verify those causes, create a remediation plan, document and create a final report for the entire process, as well perform ongoing monitoring of the WLAN to allow proactive intervention of future troubleshooting issues.
This course will provide the structure and knowledge needed to fulfill all of the above steps in an intensive three-day, hands-on, instructor-led curriculum. The course will provide experience in solving real-world examples of some of the most common and troublesome WiFi connectivity, performance, and security related problems using AirMagnet diagnostic applications such as Spectrum XT and WiFi Analyzer.
Who is the course for? This wireless troubleshooting and analysis class is designed for WLAN administrators, NOC operators, engineers, technicians, installers and help desk/user support personnel, as well as consultants and system integrators who use AirMagnet products to investigate wireless network issues.
