This topic is a chance to discuss more about how to use the Wireless LAN Controller Configuration Analyzer (WLCCA) tool for the remote analysis of wireless networks. 
The WLCCA is a post-sale tool that helps to save time on the analysis of Wireless LAN Controller configuration files. It helps the radio frequency (RF) analysis, which allows problem simplification on the configuration auditions, and on the estimation and adoption of best practices. In this event, you can learn more about how to use WLCCA in order to analyze wireless networks, detect network design issues and configuration issues, evaluate voice deployment, and learn best troubleshooting practices on RF. 

 

Ask questions from Tuesday 17th to Friday 27th of April, 2018

During the live event, Wi-Fi subject matter expert George Stefanick will cover a number of advanced topics on the 802.11 protocol. George will walk you through the different types of 802.11 frames and their purpose. He will show how a packet turns into a frame; how that frame turns into bits; and, lastly, how the bits get modulated into the air.

You have heard that Wi-Fi is half duplex, right? George will tackle the complex discussion of CSMA-CA. He will break down Layer 1 Carrier Sense and Layer 2 Network Allocation Vector, explaining how both work in concert to make sure of a lower probability that two or more stations will not transmit at the same time. He will also give a status of his all Wi-Fi office with Cisco 3700 802.11ac access points.

You just deployed Cisco 802.11ac access points, and you want to sniff frames? No problem. George will share his real-world experience sniffing 802.11ac frames with Wildpacket OmniPeek directly from Cisco 3700s.

If you design, deploy, or manage a Wi-Fi network, do not miss this session.

Agenda

•  Management, control, and data frames

•  LLC, MAC, PLCP, PMD: Know the layers and what each layer does

•  CSMA-CA (Layer 1) Carrier Sense and (Layer 2) Network Allocation Vector

•  How to capture 802.11ac frames from a Cisco access point

 

Cisco Designated VIP George Stefanick is a wireless architect employed by Houston Methodist Hospital System. George manages a large and complex wireless network that includes more than 2500 access points and upward of 11,000 concurrent Wi-Fi clients. George has been in wireless communications since 1997 and holds various vendor and vendor-neutral certifications. He focuses on high-density indoor deployments in the healthcare vertical, thereby using his hands-on experience in site survey, RFID, and voice design.

Introduction

An OfficeExtend access point provides secure communications from a controller to an access point at a remote location, seamlessly extending the corporate WLAN over the Internet to an employee's residence. The user's experience at the home office is exactly the same as it would be at the corporate office. Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) encryption between the access point and the controller ensures that all communications have the highest level of security.

Purposely designed for the teleworking environment, the Cisco Aironet 600 Series OfficeExtend Access point delivers full 802.11n speed with simultaneous 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz RF band support.

Network Diagram

Typical OfficeExtend Access Point Setup.bmp

Business Benefits

  • Extends Borderless Network services and policies to the home-office teleworker.
  • Protects the corporate environment with industry-standard control and wireless access point (CAPWAP) support.
  • Simultaneously supports corporate and personal network activity with traffic segmentation.
  • Increases productivity and reduces cellular cost by extending voice to the home wirelessly or via a wired Ethernet port.
  • Reduces setup time with simplified IT provisioning.

Supported Controller Platforms

The 600 Series OfficeExtend Access Point is supported on the Cisco 5508 Series Controller, WISM-2, and Cisco 2500 Series Controllers and requires the controller software 7.0.116.0 release.

Currently, Cisco 1040, 1130, 1140, and 3502I series access points that are joined to a Cisco 5500 Series Controller can be configured to operate as OfficeExtend access points.

Benefits for the Teleworker

  • Zero-touch deployment at the home office speeds setup time and gets you working right away.
  • Simultaneous dual-band support helps avoid congestion caused by home devices.
  • Backward capability supports 802.11a/b/g devices as well as newly deployed 802.11n devices.
