CCNA® Wireless Certification
CCNA Wireless recognizes the critical importance of professionals supporting wireless LANS including Networking Associates/Administrators, Wireless Support Specialists and WLAN project managers.

The CCNA Wireless Certification validates candidate’s skills in the configuration, implementation and support of wireless LANs, specifically those networks using Cisco equipment. Students completing the recommended Cisco training are provided with information and practice activities to prepare them for, configuring, monitoring and troubleshooting basic tasks of a Cisco WLAN in SMB and Enterprise networks. Employers maybe able to validate their staff have the skills needed for basic wireless networking on a Cisco WLAN in SMB and enterprise networks after completing certification.

Prerequisites

A valid CCENT or a valid CCNA Routing and Switching or any CCIE certification can act as a prerequisite.

Required Exam(s): 640-722 IUWNE

Recommended Training: Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Networking Essentials  (IUWNE) v2.0

Exam Topics

The following information provides general guidelines for the content likely to be included on the Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Networking Essentials (IUWNE) exam. However, other related topics may also appear on any specific delivery of the exam.

 
Describe WLAN fundamentals

    Describe basics of spread spectrum technology

    Describe the impact of various wireless technologies (Bluetooth, WiMAX, ZigBee, and cordless phone)

    Describe wireless regulatory bodies, standards and certifications (FCC, ETSI, 802.11a/b/g/n, and WiFi Alliance)

    Describe Wireless LAN (WLAN) RF principles (antenna types, RF gain/loss, Effective Isotropic Radiated Power (EIRP), refraction, reflection, and so on)

    Describe networking technologies used in wireless  (SSID to WLAN_ID to Interface to VLAN, 802.1q trunking)

    Describe wireless  topologies, such as Independent Basic Service Set (IBSS), Basic Service Set (BSS), Extended Service Set (ESS), Point-to-Point, Point-to-Multipoint, Mesh, and bridging)

    Describe 802.11 authentication and encryption methods (Open, Shared, 802.1X, EAP, TKIP, and AES)

    Describe frame types (associated and unassociated, management, control, and data)

    Describe basic RF deployment considerations related to site survey design of data or VoWLAN applications, common RF interference sources such as devices, building material, AP location, and basic RF site survey design related to channel reuse, signal strength, and cell overlap

 
Install a basic Cisco wireless LAN

    Identify the components of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network architecture   (Split MAC, LWAPP, stand-alone AP vs controller-based AP, specific hardware examples)

    Install and configure autonomous access points in the small business environment

    Describe the modes of controller-based AP deployment (local, monitor, HREAP, sniffer, rogue detector, bridge, OEAP, and SE-Connect)

    Describe controller-based AP discovery and association (DHCP, DNS, Master-Controller, Primary-Secondary-Tertiary, and n+1 redundancy)

    Describe roaming (Layer 2 and Layer 3, intra-controller and inter-controller, and mobility list)

    Configure a WLAN controller and access points WLC:  ports, interfaces, WLANs, NTP, CLI and Web UI, CLI wizard, and link aggregation group (LAG) AP:  Channel and Power

    Describe Radio Resource Management (RRM) fundamentals including ED-RRM.

    Verify basic wireless network operation

 
Install Wireless Clients

    Describe client WLAN configuration requirements, such as Service Set Identifier (SSID), security selection, and authentication

    Identify basic configuration of common wireless supplicants (Macintosh, Intel Wireless Pro, Windows, iOS, and Android)

    Describe basic AnyConnect 3.0 or above wireless configuration parameters

    Identify capabilities available in CCX versions 1 through 5

 
Implement basic WLAN Security

    Describe the general framework of wireless security and security components (authentication, encryption, MFP, and IPS)

    Describe the evolution of supported authentication methods  (PSK, 802.1X including  EAP-TLS, EAP-FAST, PEAP, LEAP, and WPA/WPA2)

    Configure the different sources of authentication (EAP-local or -external, and Radius)

    Configure authentication and encryption  methods on a WLAN (WPA/WPA2 with PSK and 802.1x)

    Implement wireless Guest networking

Operate basic WCS

    Identify key functions of Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS) and Navigator (versions and licensing)

    Navigate WCS interface

    Configure controllers and access points (APs) (using the Configuration tab not templates)

    Use preconfigured maps in the WCS (adding/relocating/removing access points, turn on/off heat maps, view client location, and view CleanAir zones of influence)

    Use the WCS monitor tab and alarm summary to verify the WLAN operations

    Generate standard WCS reports (inventory, CleanAir, client-related, AP-related, and utilization)

 
Conduct basic WLAN Maintenance and Troubleshooting

    Identify and use basic WLAN troubleshooting tools (WLC show debug and logging)  for client to AP connectivity, AP to controller connectivity

    Use the WCS client troubleshooting tool

    Transfer logs, configuration files, and O/S images to and from the WLC via the GUI

    Differentiate and use WLC and AP (autonomous and LAP) management access methods  (console port, CLI, telnet, ssh, http, https, and wired vs wireless management)

FAQ: CCNA Wireless

1. CCNA Wireless Certification: Requirements: To achieve a CCNA Wireless certification, a candidate must take and pass the IUWNE exam.  Prior to taking the IUWNE exam, a candidate must possess a valid CCENT, or CCNA Routing and Switching, or any CCIE certification as a prerequisite.

2. CCNA Wireless Certification: Benefit of prerequisites change: Candidates are able to achieve the CCNA Wireless certification by meeting the minimal prerequisite of possessing a CCENT certification (ICND1 exam) and passing the IUWNE exam.

3. CCNA Wireless Certification: Prerequisites: Effective March 26, 2013, the prerequisite for the CCNA Wireless certification is a valid CCENT , or CCNA Routing and Switching or any CCIE certification can act as a prerequisite.

4. CCNA Wireless Certification: ICND2 required?
No. Effective March 26, 2013, ICND2 exam will be a requirement for achieving the CCNA Routing and Switching certification only. Prior to attempting the IUWNE exam, candidates must possess a valid CCENT , or CCNA Routing and Switching or any CCIE certification which can act as a prerequisite.

5. CCNA Wireless Certification: Prerequisites change – benefit for employers: Employers are able to fill open wireless network engineering positions sooner with qualified candidates.
