Course Description:

ho wifi6 80211axThis 1-day course is designed specifically for solutions engineers and account managers at your company. It provides them with an understanding of Wi-Fi 6 that will allow them to more effectively interact and advise their customers.

Course Objectives:

At the end of this 1-day course the learner should be able to:

  • Be familiar with Wi-Fi 6 network terminology
  • List the key benefits and advantages of deploying Wi-Fi 6
  • Compare and contrast Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6
  • Discuss the challenges and potential of deploying in the 6 GHz band
  • Start to understand how their job and your company products are helping your customers deploy high performance WLANs


As the title states, the target audience for this course is anyone in your company  that works at the solutions level, such as account managers, sales people, sales engineers and similar roles, or anyone that needs a technology overview.

Course Prerequisites:

This course is designed to appeal to anyone that needs to be knowledgeable on Wi-Fi 6 networks. The ideal student will have a background in Wi-Fi and understand basic Wi-Fi operations. However, no prior knowledge is required.

The demonstrations use the Wireshark packet analyzer to explore Wi-Fi 6 packets. Students who which to follow along with these demonstrations are expected to download and install the latest version of Wireshark before coming to class (https://www.wireshark.org/download.html).

Course Materials:

Learners will be provided with course material, and supporting reference material via the Online School of Network Sciences.

Related Content:

There are a number of related courses we offer that explore the technical aspects of both today’s and tomorrow’s wireless networks. For students that require a technical an in-depth understanding of Wi-Fi 6, it is recommended that they attend the 2-day Hands-on Wi-Fi 6/6E (802.11ax) course.
