Catch the Wi-Fi Express: CWNP Takes 802.11n Training to the Streets

(BUSINESS WIRE)--CWNP (Certified Wireless Network Professional), the de facto standard in Wi-Fi training and certification, is launching a six-city tour providing free seminars regarding the fundamentals of 802.11n, the most recent set of standards covering wireless local area network (WLAN) computer communication. The seminars, sponsored exclusively by Meru Networks, will feature an introductory course in 802.11n taught by CWNP CTO Devin Akin, Q & A sessions and advice from technology experts currently deploying 802.11n systems.

“Our goal with the road show is to throw light on what 802.11n means in terms of performance, range and stability enhancements,” said Devin Akin, CWNP Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer. “Correct deployment is the only way business will realize the true value of ‘n,’ and that rests in the hands of those who implement the technology. We’re hoping to give attendees a jump start into gaining that needed knowledge.”

To reinforce the training delivered during the seminar, participants will take home an in-depth informational video on 802.11n created by CWNP, as well as CWNP’s new official Sybex CWNAv2 Self Study Guide.

“Our 802.11n video is a step-by-step, technical walk-through of 802.11n PHY and MAC enhancements, and an in-depth discussion of design and deployment considerations. Participants get their first classroom introduction with the seminar. The video provides an additional layer of knowledge; and we hope that with the CWNA study guide, these folks will continue on with certification,” added Akin.

“We’re excited to partner with CWNP in taking ‘n’ on the road,” said Rachna Ahlawat, Meru Vice President of Marketing. “CWNP’s reputation in providing high quality education, teaching beyond the vendor platform, is unparalleled in the industry. 802.11n is not a simple platform. We can provide the right infrastructure solutions, but it is the people who deploy them that enable our equipment to shine.”

* Atlanta, GA – May 13
* Washington, DC – May 14
* Bridgewater, NJ – May 20
* Chicago, IL – May 21
