CCNP Wireless


For network engineers who need to increase their value to employers and stay current with advances in networking knowledge and skills, the cisco CCNP wireless certification program provides the education and training required for installing, monitoring, and troubleshooting network infrastructure products designed by the industry leader in IP networking.

Cisco Certified Network Associate Wireless (CCNP Wireless) validates associate-level knowledge and skills to configure, implement and support of wireless LANs, specifically those networks using Cisco equipment. With a CCNP Wireless certification, network professionals can support a basic wireless network on a Cisco WLAN in a SMB to enterprise network. The CCNP Wireless curriculum includes information and practice activities to prepare them for configuring, monitoring and troubleshooting basic tasks of a Cisco WLAN in SMB and Enterprise networks. CCNP wireless training covers (but is not limited to) the use of these topics:The Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Site Survey version 2.0 (CUWSS 642-732) is a qualifying exam for the Cisco Certified Network Professional CCNP certifications. The CUWSS 642-732 exam will certify that the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills necessary to plan and conduct a wireless site survey, design the RF network, and conduct a post installation assessment to ensure compliance.

Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Voice Networks (IUWVN 642-742) is a qualifying exam for the Cisco Certified Network Professional CCNP. The IUWVN 642-742 exam will certify that the successful candidate has important knowledge and skills necessary to integrate VoWLAN services into the WLAN and be able to implement QoS, MPLS, and high bandwidth applications into the wireless network.

Candidates can prepare for this exam by taking the IUWVN Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Voice Networks course.
Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Mobility Services (IUWMS 642-747) is a qualifying exam for the Cisco Certified Network Professional CCNP certification.
