In the past, the functional extent of wireless networking was simply a means to remove clients from network cabling. This allowed users to roam freely and provided network access from remote locations.

Wireless networking has evolved. The enormous popularity and utility of wireless networks has increased the importance and difficulty of managing them. To help manage wireless networks, Cisco has developed two useful technologies:

  • Cisco Structured Wireless Aware Network (SWAN)

  • Cisco Mobile Wireless Center (MWC)

This chapter examines these two technologies and explains how you can use them in your own organization.

Finally, as a network professional, you might consider a wireless networking certification to prove your skill with Cisco wireless technologies. The last part of this chapter examines current wireless certifications and what those certifications encompass.
