Another great 802.11ac video from CWNP.

with one comment

CWNP has posted a new 802.11ac video over on their YouTube Channel (CWNPTV)

This new video covers Planning for 802.11ac, if you still have not had a chance to go through the IEEE document or mess around with any new 802.11ac equipment this video is worth a play through. It covers the common pitfall of coverage vs capacity (Which does not only pertain to 802.11ac). I’ve seen many places and people simply deploy wireless based on signal strength, and if you have done more than a few wireless deployments you know signal strength & coverage is only half the battle. Capacity and throughput is the other half.

The video was posted almost a week ago and still has less than 200 views, so I am just trying to spread the word. As there are a few other useful videos in that Youtube channel, it’s a worthy resource that should not be overlooked for anyone wanting to be more familiar with 802.11 Wireless.

CCNP: Security Finally!

with one comment


And the race is over, last week I passed the SECURE exam finishing off my CCNP: Security, barely 2 weeks before retirement. I feel bad for coming so close to the wire with this one. Considering I passed FIREWALL over a year ago and VPN sometime last year, however it has been a busy year. Now, that I have finally finished off CCNP: Security it’s time to get back to Data Center. Let’s see if I can finish off my CCNA/P: Data Center off this year to!

New page is up, CCIE: Data Center study links.

leave a comment »

Well it has been a crazy week for me and unfortunately I have not even had the time to put together a proper blog post.

To keep the information flowing I have added a new page to my blog “CCIE Data Center Study Links“. For the last 9 months or so I have been very data center focused, and I am planning on tackling the CCNP: Data Center certification soon (Probably going to be taking one those exams at Live this year). During that time I’ve gathered quite the collection of links & videos for data center material. Recently, I thought to myself instead of keeping this information locked in my own Evernote account I should move this to the blog. So there it is!

So far I have only been able to consolidate some of the Nexus material I’ve used, the new CCIE Data Center Study Links page will continuously be updated. (So keep checking back!)
