IT TRAINING

Cisco WWPIM – Wired & Wireless Prime Infrastructure Management V1.0

This course combines concepts of both WMNGI and WMUAPI courses. In this course you will learn about application visibility adn control capabilities of Cisco Prime Infrastructure (PI) by monitoring and troubleshooting problems on the network. The student will be put in the context of a realistic customer scenario and will cover all the aspects of Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.0’s lifecycle management approach. The student will also create sites and maps, deploy configurations, perform device discovery and learn how to set alarms and troubleshoot network and application issues.

The course starts with an overview of the Cisco PI product line in which you will look at product functions, components, capabilities and features. Afterwards you will learn where to locate installation procedures for the access point and their associated Wireless LAN Controllers (WCLs) and then properly install the PI hardware appropriate to site and use requirements. You will complete your training learning how to utilize recommended troubleshooting methodology and the tools to gather and assess system data to isolate equipment failures and security threats.
