The 640-722 Implementing Cisco Unified Wireless Network Essential (IUWNE) exam tests a candidate’s knowledge of installing, configuring, operating, and troubleshooting small to medium-size WLANs.
The following are general guidelines for the IUWNE exam.
Note: The below guidelines from Cisco can change at any time without notice.
Describe WLAN fundamentals
- Describe basics of spread spectrum technology
- Describe the impact of various wireless technologies (Bluetooth, WiMAX, ZigBee, and cordless phone)
- Describe wireless regulatory bodies, standards and certifications (FCC, ETSI, 802.11a/b/g/n, and WiFi Alliance)
- Describe Wireless LAN (WLAN) RF principles (antenna types, RF gain/loss, Effective Isotropic Radiated Power (EIRP), refraction, reflection, and so on)
- Describe networking technologies used in wireless (SSID to WLAN_ID to Interface to VLAN, 802.1q trunking)
- Describe wireless topologies, such as Independent Basic Service Set (IBSS), Basic Service Set (BSS), Extended Service Set (ESS), Point-to-Point, Point-to-Multipoint, Mesh, and bridging)
- Describe 802.11 authentication and encryption methods (Open, Shared, 802.1X, EAP, TKIP, and AES)
- Describe frame types (associated and unassociated, management, control, and data)
- Describe basic RF deployment considerations related to site survey design of data or VoWLAN applications, common RF interference sources such as devices, building material, AP location, and basic RF site survey design related to channel reuse, signal strength, and cell overlap
Install a basic Cisco wireless LAN
- Identify the components of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network architecture (Split MAC, LWAPP, stand-alone AP vs controller-based AP, specific hardware examples)
- Install and configure autonomous access points in the small business environment
- Describe the modes of controller-based AP deployment (local, monitor, HREAP, sniffer, rogue detector, bridge, OEAP, and SE-Connect)
- Describe controller-based AP discovery and association (DHCP, DNS, Master-Controller, Primary-Secondary-Tertiary, and n+1 redundancy)
- Describe roaming (Layer 2 and Layer 3, intra-controller and inter-controller, and mobility list)
- Configure a WLAN controller and access points WLC: ports, interfaces, WLANs, NTP, CLI and Web UI, CLI wizard, and link aggregation group (LAG) AP: Channel and Power
- Describe Radio Resource Management (RRM) fundamentals including ED-RRM.
- Verify basic wireless network operation
Install Wireless Clients
- Describe client WLAN configuration requirements, such as Service Set Identifier (SSID), security selection, and authentication
- Identify basic configuration of common wireless supplicants (Macintosh, Intel Wireless Pro, Windows, iOS, and Android)
- Describe basic AnyConnect 3.0 or above wireless configuration parameters
- Identify capabilities available in CCX versions 1 through 5
Implement basic WLAN Security
- Describe the general framework of wireless security and security components (authentication, encryption, MFP, and IPS)
- Describe the evolution of supported authentication methods (PSK, 802.1X including EAP-TLS, EAP-FAST, PEAP, LEAP, and WPA/WPA2)
- Configure the different sources of authentication (EAP-local or -external, and Radius)
- Configure authentication and encryption methods on a WLAN (WPA/WPA2 with PSK and 802.1x)
- Implement wireless Guest networking
Operate basic WCS
- Identify key functions of Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS) and Navigator (versions and licensing)
- Navigate WCS interface
- Configure controllers and access points (APs) (using the Configuration tab not templates)
- Use preconfigured maps in the WCS (adding/relocating/removing access points, turn on/off heat maps, view client location, and view CleanAir zones of influence)
- Use the WCS monitor tab and alarm summary to verify the WLAN operations
- Generate standard WCS reports (inventory, CleanAir, client-related, AP-related, and utilization)
Conduct basic WLAN Maintenance and Troubleshooting
- Identify and use basic WLAN troubleshooting tools (WLC show debug and logging) for client to AP connectivity, AP to controller connectivity
- Use the WCS client troubleshooting tool
- Transfer logs, configuration files, and O/S images to and from the WLC via the GUI
- Differentiate and use WLC and AP (autonomous and LAP) management access methods (console port, CLI, telnet, ssh, http, https, and wired vs wireless management)
