Seminar-ID:
CIAP

Seminar content

The lab-intensive Aruba Instant AP(IAP) course is designed to provide students the knowledge, skills, and practical experience required to set up and configure an IAP cluster with WLAN. Using lecture and labs, the class provides the technical understanding and hands-on experience of configuring a WLAN with a cluster of IAPs. Candidates will also learn to configure with 802.1X and Captive portal authentication, and Firewall settings. The class also provides troubleshooting skills. Other topics covered are advanced services such as ARM, Mesh setup, VPN to a controller, roaming between clusters, IDS/IPS and, configuring IoTs. This IAP class can be coupled with an AirWave or Central class for management and configuration purposes.
