BYOD, UAM and WSM Configuration and Troubleshooting (H4C80)

Course Description Schedule

Course Overview

The training covers the necessary requirements to set up, configure and troubleshoot wireless users connecting via the User Access Manager (UAM) Bring Your Own Device ( BYOD) module, in addition authenticate users using the 802.1x protocol, and finally use the Wireless Switch Manager (WSM) module to manage and monitor your wireless network.

This course will teach students how to set up the HP Wireless controllers for BYOD authentication as well as configuring the UAM-BYOD module to allow access. In addition students will be taught how to set up the UAM as a Radius server for 802.1x authentication in conjunction with the HP Wireless controllers. Finally the students will see how the WSM module can manage, monitor and configure the HP Wireless controllers.
